Dress up Your Porch with the American Flag

Show your love for the nation with the American Flag, which is a must-have for any 4th of July decoration. Decorate your porch, deck, fence or railing by installing an American flag. You can use stars and stripes in your decoration.

Decorate Your Fence with Wreaths

Display your national pride by decorating your fence with patriotic wreaths. A wreath having a splash of red, white, and blue is a perfect way to add a patriotic touch to your outdoor decoration. You can also attach red, white, and blue buntings or garlands of stars to your fence.

Complete Your Table Setting with Patriotic Themed Items

Table decoration is an important part of a 4th of July outdoor decoration. Decorate your table with patriotic tablecloths, table runner, and tableware. Bring the American spirit to your table by using red, white, and blue plates, glasses, bowls, and a patriotic centerpiece.

Brighten Your Outdoors with Patriotic Lighting

Decorate your porch with patriotic lighting and add flair to your 4th of July decoration. Red, white, and blue string strands, candles, and classy lanterns, are a great way to exhibit patriotic fervor and set the perfect ambiance for your evening celebration.

Spruce up Your Outdoors with Patriotic Banners and Balloons

Red, white, and blue balloons and banners spruce up your outdoors by adding fun and color. Display your creativity with a trail of balloons on your fence, porch, and railings. Hang inviting banners at the entrance or party area to welcome your guests.

Hang 4th of July Garland on Your Fence

Show your patriotic fervor with red, blue, and white garland. Hang it on your door or fence for the perfect patriotic décor. You can easily make it using a variety of materials such as felt, ribbon, or mesh. Add more fun by shaping the garland into eye-catching designs.

Paint Stars on Your Lawn

Be extra patriotic and make your outdoor decoration stand out by painting red, white, and blue stars on your lawn. It’s a fun and easy DIY that will add patriotic color to your lawn. All you need to make these stars are: cardboard, box cutter, and red, white, and blue spray paint. 

Hang Liberty Burlap Stars on Your Fence

Add a festive accent to your outdoors by hanging Liberty burlap stars on your fence or along the doorway or walkway. Available in red, white, blue color and accented with colorful patriotic stripes, they are perfect for 4th of July décor.

Hang Lantern Lighting on Your Fence

You will need red, white, and blue-colored craft paper, string lights, a hole punch, and scissors to create lantern lighting. First, roll a sheet of the craft paper into a cylinder, then hole punch the sheet with stars, and attach a handle to it. Now, thread the string lights through the handles and hang them on your fence. 

Drape Your Fence with Festive Bunting

Add a historical flair to your décor through bunting. Loosely drape red, white, and blue bunting on your fence to create a beautiful striped visual effect for your yard. It is a simple way to show off your American pride.

Get a Patriotic Fence Panel

A custom fence panel displaying the flag’s design is another way to celebrate the spirit of the holiday and show off your patriotism. You can order it or design and install it on your own.
