Don't let the 4th of July pass by without a patriotic display on your front porch. Here are six simple patriotic front porch decor ideas you should try.
1. Keep it simple
Keep your existing front porch decor and simply add an American flag or two for a patriotic look that's quick and easy to pull off. Ann from On Sutton Place does just that with a cute display on her existing wreath.
2. Hang some bunting
Bunting is incredibly versatile and always gorgeous for celebrations. It can be made out of nearly anything – flags, bandanas, paper, fabric scraps – and you can find it at most stores this time of year or make your own by sewing, stapling or simply tying your materials together. Take the understated classy route like Boxwood Avenue with flags made of painters’ cloth. Or make a bigger statement like Nora Murphy.
3. Plant patriotic flowers
Whether you opt for red, white, blue or a combination of the three, fresh flowers are a great way to add a pop of patriotic color to your front porch. Consider refreshing your planters or adding to existing arrangements to get your front porch ready to celebrate the long weekend in no time. Here's some inspiration from On Blueberry Hill.
4. Try a DIY project
The long holiday weekend is the perfect time to put your skills to the test and try out a new craft. Homeowners with kids can even get them involved and create something adorable to celebrate the 4th of July. This patriotic wreath from Home Crafts by Ali is the perfect place to start.
5. Get creative
Take some inspiration from the holiday itself and create something unique for your porch decor. Here's how Hoosier Homemade took a few wooden fence posts and made them into wooden firecrackers, perfect for any 4th of July-inspired space!
6. Spare no detail
Of course, we love when each and every detail is carefully curated to complete a look. You’ll definitely be tempted to hang out all weekend on this patriotic patio by Four Generations One Roof. Grab a few red, white and blue pillows, blankets and accessories and create a space where you can enjoy some relaxation and good company.
