As 4th of July approaches, it’s time to think about how you’ll celebrate! Aside from fireworks, BBQ’s and parades – it’s fun to bring the festive spirit to your home decor as well. There’s nothing more welcoming than a patriotic front entrance. Here are a few simple ideas to bring the red, white, and blue to your front door or porch.

This American flag-inspired bunting is super easy to make. According to Lolly Jane, just freehand a template on regular paper. Then cut out burlap and fabric. Make sure the fabric is a little smaller than the burlap for a layered look. Adhere the pieces together using spray-on adhesive. Then use a strip of burlap for the string; simply attach the individual pieces with a hot glue gun. The result is a beautiful and festive banner! And we love the giant metal star to finish off the look.

Keep in mind, holiday decor doesn’t have to require a lot of effort. This simple look only requires a couple of flags inserted into your regular potted plants. Then, add a stick-on decal to your front door, or paint on a design using removable paint markers.

This DIY hanging sign was made with a pre-cut United States wooden shape. Red and white stripes were painted on using painters tape. Finally, the script font was made with a vinyl cut-out machine. But you could mimic the same look using a stencil or if you’re handy with a paint pen, freehand lettering.

Anyone can make this adorable fabric door hanging! All it takes are some strips of fabric and a wooden dowel to hang them on. We love the blue bandana for the “star area” of the flag, it brings a rustic charm to the project.

This wooden flag project was inspired by a Pottery Barn product, but was made with a wood pallet for less than half the price! A giant piece like this transforms your porch into a show stopper, you’ll be the envy of all your neighbors!
