Thursday’s Theme: 4th of July

Ruffly Patriotic Wreath - Capital B BlogBy now your home is probably beautifully decorated in all things red, white and blue, so for this week’s décor article we have found some DIY projects that we couldn’t pass on sharing – and they can be done in time for the 4th. Also included are some accents that you may not be able to get in time for Saturday, but they are great for decorating next year or if you want to keep an Americana look in your home all year long.

There are many homemade wreath options for all seasons and celebrations throughout the year. A popular wreath trend, especially in the DIY world, is the ruffle wreath. They are fun to make, and with the proper care can be used year after year. We like this particular Patriotic Wreath because of the star accents; you can choose to leave them off but it definitely gives this wreath added dimension and style.

Table Setting - Better Homes and GardensIf you’ve planned an Independence Day celebration outside, there is still plenty of room to decorate in the patriotic spirit. To relieve a clean-up headache, go for paper plates and cups that are 4th of July themed or red, white and blue. Or, buy a set of inexpensive dinnerware in USA colors to add festivity to your table. You can also incorporate your condiments, plastic or silverware, and other food necessities into your table settings by upcycling and decorating empty coffee containers or Mason jars. Paint them and add colorful ribbon to give them festive flair.

America & Flag Sign Blocks

For keeping up the patriotic spirit in your décor all year long, vie for staple home accents, like pillows or rugs decorated in the red, white and blue, or decorate your home in stars, USA-themed collectibles, and infamous historical faces.
No matter your personal taste, there are endless ways to adorn your home in Americana style. So express your patriotic spirit – for the 4th of July and throughout the year with DIY projects and charming home accents!
