There is really no need to spend big money for homemade 4th of July decorations. Include these decorations in the festivities and give the celebrations your own unique mark.

Decorative Flowers

Get some red, white and blue flowers and arrange them in the garden. Line the flowers in rows and paint the pots in red, white, and blue.

You can also put these flowers in various parts of the house. Place some in the living room, kitchen, and other rooms. You don’t need to spend a fortune, as synthetic flowers will do just fine.


You can also put up patriotically-themed wreaths on the door and windows. You can use wreaths made of Styrofoam or grapevine.

Get some flowers and arrange them along the wreath. Aside from flowers, there are other ways of adorning this homemade 4th of July decoration.

Get some ribbons and paint them in red, white and blue. Cut some thick paper into star shapes. Paint them in the appropriate colors.

Put the stars and ribbons on the wreath. You can also attach some American flags to the wreath before putting it up. Use some floral wire to fasten these decorations in place.

Patriotic Table Ornaments

Get a large bowl and fill it with water. Put some glass marbles in the bowl. Paint them red, white, and blue if needed. Now, put the patriotic candles in it. Light the candles.

Put these on tables and desks. You can also use this homemade 4th of July decoration as centerpiece decor during get-togethers and parties.

Decorating Felts

Buy some felt and cut it to the desired length. Get some red, blue and white paper. Write your message and cut each letter.

Alternate the colors and stick to the felt using glue. You can also cut some stars and ribbons and attach them to the felt.

Decorating Bags

Get the paper bags and containers you want to decorate. Paint them in red, white, and blue. You can also paint with one dominant color (i.e., the bag is only red or blue).

Now, cut some stars and paint them white. Paste them on the bags. You can also put tea lights in your homemade 4th of July decoration. Put them in the driveway and let them light the way.

Flags and Other Designs

Using your computer, you can easily make American flags. Print them out and paste them on the fridge or fasten them to poles.

You can also make stars and stripes using ribbons and paper. These can be used as confetti for the party. You can also paint those trumpets or caps, with patriotic colors.

If you are the artistic type, you can draw patriotic-themed images on your computer (or drawing paper).

Print them out and hang them on the walls or give some to your friends to make as decors. Let your creativity shine by drawing some patriotic graphics.

If you want to add something to the celebrations besides fireworks, these homemade 4th of July decorations will do the trick. A lot of everyday objects can be turned into patriotic designs, so, have fun!
