We are half way through June and my home is brimming with Patriotic Decorations, is yours Sweet Friend? Red, White and Blue is so fun and easy as it adds the perfect pop of color to any style. Learn Five Quick and Easy Patriotic Decor Ideas using Dollar Store Items.
Patriotic Decorations from the Dollar Tree!
I love shopping. I especially love shopping at the Dollar Store and Second Hand Stores. Do you wonder why? Of course, not! Cheaper is always better! Seasonal decorating can get pricey, so smart shopping is a must.
Every season I usually pop over to the Dollar Store to see what’s new. This time the Dollar Store delivered. The Dollar Store had star scatter, lanterns, flags, scarves, signs, sparklers, and I could go on and on. It can be quick and easy to decorate your home with patriotic decor and here’s how.
Five Quick and Easy Patriotic Decor Ideas!
Number one: Set a Table
Dining can be elaborate or simple, but setting a beautiful table makes all the difference. Celebrating Red, White and Blue during the summer months is key. I used Dollar Store items on a Patriotic Tablesetting with bandanas, stars, sunflowers and simple white dishes.
The Patriotic Tablescape Idea project was so fun that I decided to create a video. Are you subscribed to my You Tube Channel? Don’t forget to check out the video.
Number two: Create a Centerpiece.
Every table needs a centerpiece and a vase full of flowers is not always enough. Remember the St. Patrick’s Day Flower Centerpiece I created last March? I can imagine a centerpiece similar flowing with Red, White and Blue.
Number three: Style a Bookcase
Bookcases aren’t just for books, you can include other items like Patriotic Decor. I like to add flowers or plants in pretty pots. Table scatter similar to the bandanas turned into stars I created (DIY tutorial coming soon), add a touch of whimsical nostalgic. I also incorporate cute patriotic signs on my bookcases. All of these items can be found from the Dollar Tree.
Number four: Decorate your Front Door
Every front door deserves to look pretty and decorating it for the season is a favorite of mine. Every door needs a wreath and if you are a wreath lover like me, you even put wreaths on your walls. Wreaths layered on Shutters or Old Windows are also a great addition to the home. I found some wood stars from the Dollar Tree last year and they made the perfect Star Wreath. I painted the stars Red, White and Blue and then attached them to an embroidery hoop. The DIY is on the blog.
Every door also needs a large sign and a beautiful door mat. Remember my DIY Valentine’s Day Doormat where I stenciled atop a Dollar Store Mat. It sat on my beautiful deck. You could also layer it atop a colorful rug. The options are really endless and the Dollar Store is the place to find ideas.
You could also use the Dollar Tree Hats in Red and Blue to create a wreath. I found that project on Pinterest and pinned it to make later. The Dollar Tree has so many different types of wreath forms available. The options are really endless.
I created a board on Pinterest just for my favorite Red, White and Blue Wreaths. Check out my 4th of July Patriotic Wreath Board on Pinterest for more ideas and inspiration.
Number five: Make a Pillow
The perfect way to show off the new season in your home is by decorating with pillows. I like to keep a stash of Ikea Pillow Covers on hand, because they are super cheap. I use these pillow covers to decorate with extra material or paint and stencils . No-Sew Decorative Pillows, just like the Heart Pillows I made for Valentine’s Day, are super easy. What do you think of my Star Bandana No Sew Pillows? The DIY tutorial is coming soon.
I’ve got a Patriotic Craft Board on Pinterest with some cute pillow ideas that you can check out and follow.
I hope these ideas have inspired you to decorate your home for the seasons. Now go out there and Create Something.
