There is no better way to show your patriotic spirit then to decorate with some festive red, white and blue for the Memorial Day holiday.  If you are looking for unique ways to dress up your back yard barbecue or add a little indoor party charm, these Memorial Day crafts will get you well on your way to creating the right ambiance.

The American flag is, of course, a given item to display.  However, there are other ways to display our flag in a more creative style.  This clever clothespin wreath is one great example.

This wreath is a fantastic way to welcome in guests!

The next idea has to involve mason jars because there is always a mason jar craft for every occasion!  These luminaries are super festive and could even be filled with citronella candles to keep those pesky mosquitos away in the evening.

These luminaries are perfect for decorating either inside or out.

Another way to decorate is with banners.  I am loving this rustic star banner idea using paint sticks.

The stars seem to especially pop against that rustic wood and burlap background.

I love recycled crafts and this next project is a great way to reuse tin cans in a decorative and useful way.
