The Fourth of July is a little over a week away, and it’s one of my most favorite holidays. It’s so much fun to gather together with friends, families, and neighbors and share food and fireworks in celebration of our country’s history. To get you in the mood, I gathered up some decorating ideas that are so simple and each is a way to say three cheers for the red, white, and blue!
Outdoors, tie up red striped cotton fabric with blue ribbon or rope to create your own unique bunting.
On the porch or above the dining table, use colorful markers to add festive firework motifs to plain paper lanterns.
For an easy DIY craft, print out the template for these Happy Fourth coasters and adhere them to plain chipboard.
Suspend large glittery stars on a string to set the party scene.
Play off the traditional colors of the day by inserting red blooms into a collection of blue glass cups and bottles.
