4th of July Front Porch Decor Inspiration

It’s almost time for the biggest celebration of summer, the Fourth of July!  Do you love celebrating our country with some red, white, and blue, bar-b-que, and fireworks? We live in a great little cul-de-sac where most of our neighbors spend summer evenings outside in the front yard hanging out.   So, I decided to focus my Fourth of July celebration on my front porch this year.

Here’s a bunch of inspiration and a little DIY on a super simple 4th of July wreath.

  • I took a wreath form
  • Wrapped an extra flag around it, so that the stars were around the wreath, and the stripes are hanging down.
  • For the remainder of the wreath, I used some leftover burlap and hot glued one end around the wreath, then wrapped the rest around the wreath form and secured it with more hot glue
  • I hung the wreath using some burlap ribbon

Like I said, it’s super simple, you’ll just have to play around with the flag to get the positioning that you want.  I specifically used this style because our front door is so tall.  I wanted something that would take up a good portion of the door.  This does just that!

July Fourth front porch decor and inspiration, July 4th front porch flags and ideasI hope some of these ideas give you a little inspiration to start incorporating some red, white, and blue onto your front porch.  The front porch is such an important space to show some attention.  It’s the first thing that people see when they come to your house, or even when someone just drives by.  A lot of times the front porch is an underutilized entertainment area.

Use your front porch to invite a neighbor over and have a cool, refreshing beverage while enjoying the decor and work you put into your front porch!  I hope you have a great weekend!  We’ve got several parties to celebrate this weekend, so you’ll get to see all of that fun in the upcoming weeks.

    I love the flag wreath! I have never seen anything like it before.

    Those ferns seem like quite the bargain, but I have absolutely no context for plant costs. You could have told me $60, and I would be like, “Yeah, that seems appropriate.”
