4. Festive Garden Stakes

Patriotic garden flags, decorations, and wind spinners are a festive way to add a touch of red, white, and blue to your front entrance. You can find these items at most home decor and craft stores. I love this GOD BLESS patriotic garden flag and I think it goes really good in this space in front of the porch!


5. Patriotic Planters

Decorate your front porch with plants and flowers in patriotic colors. You can also add red, white, and blue bows to your existing trees and planters to add festive charm. Red geraniums, white petunias, and blue lobelia would be so pretty on a patriotic front porch. You can use planters in themed colors or wrap your existing planters with festive ribbon, or add glitter picks with stars, firecrackers, and other 4th of July accents.

Use giant stars in classic Americana style. You can find these in many stores around this time of year. I really like the painted metal stars, but wood stars look great too, and lend a rustic vibe to your decor.
