Today I’m sharing some ideas for decorating your front porch or patio for the 4th of July! I love decorating for the seasons it’s a fun creative outlet. I also enjoy seeing how the looks I create change from year to year. It usually only takes maybe one new item and a couple DIY’s and I have a unique look. Head over to @jordecor for more decor ideas!
Let’s start with this cute 4th of July handkerchief wreath. I found the handkerchiefs at the Target dollar section. This wreath was so easy and inexpensive to make! I used a pool noodle as a base which is in the outdoor section at Target and is less than $5. I duct taped the pool noodle together. Then I cut my handkerchief into squares and used a hot glue gun to gather/bunch them in the center and then glued them all around the tube with hot glue. I found that gluing three at a time one on top, one in the middle and one the bottom, then working my way around the tube made for a great pattern.
Here is how the wreath looks with the rest of my 4th of July decor! I love using this old window frames as a backdrop for my wreaths and my porch decor otherwise this wreath wouldn’t have the same impact here. The pillows I had from previous years and they are from Target Dollar spot.
This year I decided to add this chair and side table that was previously in our bedroom. It’s more of an outdoor chair that’s no longer sold from Target. However, if you are looking for something similar for your porch I love THIS set. I’m always moving this chair around the house, quite frequently. I love it out here on the porch and actually it has been a really comfy spot to have my morning coffee in the rain or if it’s too hot for the patio!
I added some fun pops of navy and of course red to tie in with the wreath. A few flags in a milk jar add that patriotic flair. I love the nostalgia of the milk jar and the popcorn containers they make great 4th of July decor/accessories.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I created this handkerchief wreath for 4th of July and all the other little Red, White and Blue touches I added to our farmer’s porch for summer.
