Just a few days away, the 4th of July celebration gives the Americans an opportunity to show their patriotism by decorating their homes and porches. This year we have some fresh new ideas to share with you so don’t worry if you haven’t made any plans yet. With that in mind, check out our new favorite 4th of July porch decor ideas and let them inspire you.
Don’t worry if you haven’t had time to plan anything special for the 4th of July just yet. Last minute decorations can be charming too. Check out this lovely porch and its patriotic decor. It looks great with the white rocking chairs and red and the white checkerboard pillows. The flags complete the look. Find out more about this idea on onsuttonplace.
A set of 4th of July-themed firecracker decorations can also make a porch or entryway look great and they’re also pretty easy to make. If you’re interested, there’s a tutorial on mytalkingwalls which describes the entire process from start to finish. The supplies you’re going to need include a wooden post, white and blue paint, red vinyl stripes, rope, raffia, sandpaper, tape and a glue gun.
Now would also be a perfect time to give an old shutter a makeover and to turn it into a patriotic decoration for your porch. All you need is paint and some tape. You can also use a star template or a stencil to make sure the design is just right. Pair this new decoration with other 4th of July-themed accent pieces. Find out more about the shutter project on hoosierhomemade.
Reclaimed pallets are also a great resource for all sorts of DIY projects. All you need in order to turn one into an amazing American flag is some paint in red, white and blue. If you want to, you can give it a distressed look using a bit of sandpaper. If you want to find out more about the project you can check out themagicbrushinc.
Another cute 4th of July porch decor idea is to hang a wreath on the front door. This wreath is pretty special because it’s made of clothespins. You can make something similar for your own porch using a metal wreath frame, a bunch of wooden clothespins (around 60), star-shaped foam stickers, a paint brush and red, white and blue paint. Check out the instructions on preciouslypaired.
You don’t need anything too complex or sophisticated to get your porch ready for the 4th of July. You can simply display a bunch of flags in various different ways. You can also use existing items such as the planters or maybe some toys (in this case a hat and a gun). Check out hometalk for more inspiring ideas.
Instead of the usual flag, maybe you’d like to try something a bit different. How about an unconventional wreath that’s actually a flag made out of wood? You can use leftover wood from previous projects or you can visit your local hardware store to get all the supplies needed for this quirky project. The instructions can be found on adiamondinthestuff.
Fabric buntings are really fun too and they totally change the decor. If you’d like to make some patriotic bunting for your porch, there’s no need to complicate the project so keep the design simple and on point. There’s a very nice tutorial on createandbabble which describes exactly how this patriotic fabric bunting was made. Check it out and use it as inspiration.
To prove that there’s no need to go overboard with the 4th of July decorations to make your porch look great, here’s another inspiring project. This one was featured on diydesignfanatic and shows how a few simple flags and some accent pillows can totally change the decor around them.
