Thanks for making the stars and stripe combo of signs some of the most popular in the shop right now???????? If you order today you can get them in time for your #4thofjulyparty ???????? And to make this display even cuter I’ve added the Patriotic felt ball garland from @hiddenvalleyfarmhouse I leave the white one up all year long and switch out the colored one to match my #seasonaldecor I love the look of layered garlands! And layered signs! I just love to layer everything, I guess ???? Jennifer @hiddenvalleyfarmhouse does such a great job with her garlands and has soooo many to choose from! I order the 32” and ask for 64” of string so I can space them out. ????She is so awesome to accommodate my crazy requests! Go check her out! . . Signs available in my Etsy shop.

Signs are time savers. Plus, they can make your décor look elegant at minimal costs. Take a cue from @42ndcircledesign and make your own DIY stars and stripes signs. To make the arrangement perfect for an Instagram post, add felt ball garlands. The best part of this seasonal décor is that you can reuse the white garlands for Christmas and the colored ones for some snappy birthday décor!

5. Knicks and knacks

Nothing gets simpler than this décor piece by @simplyjackyhome’s. Get some stuff you have at home and paint them in the colors and patterns of the star-spangled banner. Add some fresh flowers or add paper flowers. Make sure to pick up a tiered stand in neutral shades to bring out the reds, blues, and whites. You can set this up as a centerpiece on your dinner table.

It’s not 100% completed yet but will be tonight! I changed up how I thought I wanted it and I am beyond thrilled that I did! Do you think I can convince Travis to build more to market?! ???????? This weekend we are finishing up the two cabinets…while the dresser I started a couple weeks ago still sits in the garage ????????‍♀️ What are your plans this weekend? • Thank you all for all the love on our 4th of July guest room!

Why limit your 4th of July spirit to your living room? Go over to your creative side like @kmbathome and decorate your bedroom as well! All you need is some bedding that perfectly goes with the colors of the flag. We love this ingenious mix-and-match of bedspreads, duvets, and pillows. The vase of flowers between the beds and the small flag completes the decor to the T.

8. Adorable décor pieces

We’re gonna save this décor idea by @oak.and.co for its summery vibes. If you have some cardboard or hardboard lying around in the house, you can easily make this décor piece by yourself. These are perfect to fill an empty wall. Our favorite is the hot air balloon with the little felt heart on it! Make it cuter by adding a couple of felt or wool garlands.

9. Scrap wood fun

10. Entryway décor

What we like about this décor idea by @decorwdrea18 is its versatility. If you don’t have an entryway, you can use this inspo to deck up any of the corners in your home. All the elements of this décor may seem random, but they come together really well when placed the right way. It’s not just simple but also looks aesthetically pleasing. Don’t forget the red, white, and blue stars!

11. Cutesy elements

The chippy vintage shelf from @redbarninspiredfarmhouse has our hearts. We love this tasteful décor that has a lot of potential for DIYs. Whether or not you have a vintage cabinet, this cute arrangement will definitely work anywhere in your home. You can give it a twist by adding a bunch of fresh flowers in a mason jar or add a DIY framed sign!

12. For small spaces

13. Tiered tray display

14. Easy-peasy patriotic décor

While @stylethebullseye’s patriotic tiered tray has elements assembled from different stores, you can easily make some of these at home. Plus, splash on some vivacious red paint on any old tiered tray to get this look at a low budget. You can add a sign or felt garland to perk up the décor. Add some fairy lights to make it glow as the sun goes down!

15. Scrapbook patriotic décor

Got tons of books at home? Showcase your love for books with this really cool 4th of July décor idea, like @simply.cultivate did. You can use scrapbooks, with the spines juxtaposed in perfect symmetry. Make sure to use hardcovers, since paperbacks aren’t sturdy enough for such arrangements. Add some more decorative DIY elements like garlands, festoons, signs, and posters.

16. DIY wreath

Looking for a charming farmhouse-inspired décor for your 4th of July festivities? Make sure you include this DIY wreath by @christinaelizabeth15. This is quite easy to make, especially if you don’t have décor at the last moment. Plus, it is completely inexpensive. Want to change the red truck with the stars? Create your own customized design with stencils to bring in other elements of Independence day.

17. Patriotic tablescape

Who knew mason jars would be the ultimate DIY décor for the 4th of July? Well, @masonjarbreakfast has given a really cool patriotic spin to mason jars. We are totally saving this décor inspo for our 4th of July brunch. Although we don’t have fresh flowers, we shall make do with some jazzy DIY paper flowers to complete the patriotic tablescape.

18. Americana wreath

This wreath by @meloutnumbered is our personal favorite. It’s super easy to make and needs minimal elements to make. We love how it makes everything look grand, and the addition of the blue flower peps up the entire look of the décor. It is perfect for the front door, over the fireplace, or just about any other wall with other décor pieces.

19. Gram-worthy patriotic tray

Need some brilliant aesthetic backdrops for your 4th of July Instagram posts? This gorgeous tiered tray décor inspo by @bluesparrowandpeonies is what you need. All the elements of this arrangement are super adorable for all your festive food photos. The DIY silver sparklers add the right amount of fun to the entire arrangement. Make sure to pick a tray that truly brings out the vibrant reds and blues.
