Let’s hear it for the land of the free and the home of the brave! I absolutely love the summer with all its picnics and barbeques, fireworks, and a days to celebrate this land and those who protect it. Patriotic décor is perfect all year long, starting with Memorial Day in May it works through Flag Day in June and into the grand finale of the 4th of July.
These DIY-ers know how to do it right with simple ideas that won’t cost you an arm and a leg and don’t take a lot of time (summer is busy enough, right?).
These simple projects make a great activity to do with the kids and spruce up your summer. Show your patriotism and support our great nation with a good ole fashioned DIY and let freedom ring!
This flag is easily made with a 2×4 painted blue. Add any scraps of red and white fabric on the back with a hot glue gun or a staple gun for a more weather durable version. You probably have all the supplies you need already!
Painted clothespins from the dollar store make this wreath super cheap. Connect them all with hot glue to a wire base. Your kids could even help out with this one!
This adorable pillow was made from painted burlap. Simple sewing is required.
These mason jars have holes drilled into them to make a simple candle make a brilliant display in the evening. I love it!
If you have any old pallets, or scrap wood this flag makes a beautiful display. You can use the same idea and paint a window shutters or even free paint sticks (see below). The colors of our flag are just beautiful anywhere, aren’t they?
USA wood cutouts can be found at any good craft store. Spray paint the map, and finish it off with vinyl lettering. This tutorial does require a silhouette machine.
I hope these patriotic DIY decor ideas have inspired you on your next project!
