Decorating Your Home for the 4th of July

Decorating your home for the Fourth is easy! Gather up things that are red, white and blue!

Start with a flower display of white daisies. Get three glass containers and fill them half way with water. Add a few drops of red food coloring to one container. Add a few drops of blue food coloring to another. Leave one container’s water plain and fill with freshly cut white daisies. Voila you have patriotic water for a patriotic flower arrangement!

With the help of Mod Podge, a small American flag and a jar, can easily be made into a festive luminary. Using a small foam paint brush, brush on a layer of Mod Podge to the back of the flag. Wrap the flag around the jar. Allow the flag to dry and adhere to the jar. Next brush on a layer of Mod Podge to the front of the flag. This will seal the flag to the glass jar. Place a tea light in the jar and display! Place luminaries along entrance steps to illuminate the way in for guests. The luminaries can be placed on table tops or anywhere candle light can be used.

Start with red, white and blue sand. Fill the tops of potted plants with the colorful sand. This adds a subtle yet interesting effect. You can even get creative and make designs if you like. To keep it simple just keep the color of the sand the same for each pot.

If you have string lights hanging outdoors, consider changing the bulbs out with red, clear and blue light bulbs. This will make a beautiful festive gleam while watching fireworks and enjoying the holiday evening!

The excitement and mood of this wonderful holiday doesn’t need to wait until the fireworks begin.  With these ideas, your guests are sure enjoy the extra effort of these decorations at your festivities!
