Front Porch Decorating Ideas for the 4th of July

The Fourth of July is so much fun… family time, summer cook outs, and yes, a sense of patriotism that brings us all a little closer together. (Yes, I am aware of how sappy that sounds. It’s true though!) So this year, whether  you are lucky enough to have a big Southern porch to cool yourself on summer evenings, or a tiny condo balcony, use these front porch decorating ideas for the 4th of July, and celebrate!



Love that these Fourth of July luminaries from ‘She Wears Many Hats‘ are made with rice! Easy project with kids as well…



Like mason jars? Try this tutorial for these DIY mason jar lanterns from Johnnie at ‘Saved by Love Creations’.



This pallet patriotic flag project looks pretty simple, it’s just a shipping pallet and paint. No tools required! We could not find the original source for this, so if anyone knows who did this, please share in comments!

We have two projects from ‘Simply Kierste’, the first, these DIY easy flag blocks are similar to the last one. This could also make a great centerpiece for the picnic table.



Also she has a tutorial for this DIY burlap flag pillow that would be great for rocking away to fireworks on the front porch!



With just scrap wood, some paint and a hand saw, make these fireworks treats from ‘The Pike Fam’.



Make this stars and stripes DIY with this tutorial from ‘Scavenger Chic’ using pallet or scrap wood.



This DIY patriotic shutter from ‘Hoosier Homemade’ uses an old thrift store shutter and spray paint. So cute leaned up against a porch wall!



Does this project take you back to the days when everyone hung patriotic banners on the Fourth? From ‘Uncommon Designs’, try their tutorial for this 4th of July burlap flag banner.

Add red, white and blue in different patterns to your porch, like they did with cushions and pillows in this photo from ‘BHG‘. (Remember, you can just wrap cushions in fabric and pin on the back side for a temporary thing like a holiday!)



Cottag3‘ styled this patriotic porch just right… some great pillows, and some red flowers in an old bucket. Of course, the old fashioned touches, like the window coffee table and tin buckets help sell the whole feel!


So you’ve got this, right? 🙂
