Patriotic Decor — Budget Wise Home

Patriotic Decor

Hi Friends!  To kick off the week of the 4th, I’ve rounded up some classy patriotic decor ideas for you.  Nothing over the top–just simple, easy, and of course, cheap!  Whether you’re having an outdoor barbeque or just want to bring some patriotic spirit into your home, these ideas are sure to please.


This is a perfect table centerpiece.  Just toss some rice in a ziploc bag with a few drops of food coloring.  Layer the rice in a glass vase, nestle a candle inside, and you’ve got something extra special.


This wreath couldn’t be easier to make.  Just grab a few packs of flag toothpicks and stick them into a styrofoam wreath until it’s completely covered.


To make your table a bit more festive, grab a yard of striped fabric and layer it over your table cloth.  Easy!


Last, but not least, switch out your pillows.  This is my favorite decorating trick.  Your pillows don’t have to be full of flags and stripes.  Just use the colors of the holiday to bring in the spirit of the 4th.
