Outdoor 4th of July Decor

Come Fourth of July, most of us spend that day outdoors. It’s a great time to show your patriotic pride by making some outdoor 4th of July decor for your yard and garden. We’ve found some cool projects for you that are fun, easy and great for the kids to help on as well. So fly your flag and get out the red, white and blue! It’s Fourth of July!

Our featured project, above – ‘A Diamond in the Stuff’ has a project that just might be the best use for a wood pallet I’ve seen yet. Try her wood flag wreath… This could be a great porch decoration all year round!

From ‘Sunshine Girl Crafts’, this outdoor “fireworks” display is made from simple 4×4 wood scraps, some paint and a little dollar store froo froo!



‘For the Love Of’ has a simple tutorial to create these DIY patriotic luminaries with tissue paper…great craft with the kids!



‘Pink and Green Mama’ made these DIY 4th of July lawn stars with her kids…flour and water, and a homemade stencil… this is festive and fun!

    I just made the cutest wreath. All the 4th of July wreaths were gone, so I made my very own one!!!!! Its so cute. I went to Hobby Lobby and got a grape vine wreath $4.99. then went over to the 4th of July display and bot two long garlands of this fuzzy plastic stuff for $4.99 each. about 18 feet. Mine are white with red and blue tiny stars. I then wrapped them around and around the wreath form, just tucking the ends into the twigs. Then I found a hanging decoration on a little blue ribbon for $3.99. It is a small red sparkly star, with a blue sparkly cut out star inside it, and inside that a shiny sparkly silver star. They are nested when you buy them, but when you hang them up, you separate them from each other, so that each is going in a different direction from the others.

    I hung the star down from the center of the wreath with an unfolded paper clip. Then I put another unfolded large size paper clip into the twigs in the back to hang the wreath from the nail on my front door. It looks so cute! However, my door is white. I forgot about that, oops! , so next time I think I would buy the metallic blue garland, or the metallic red. They would show up better. Still it looks great! And I made it myself!!! Go me! :-) Everything was 30% off so altogether I spent about $16.00.
