Bring out your red, white, and blue to show your patriotism this season. Whether you are having a Memorial Day picnic or a 4th Of July celebration, you can make it festive with your own homemade decor. Even if you are just planning some general Summer entertaining, a show of red, white, and blue gives a homey Americana feel. You can show your love of the flag in a variety of different ways. From banners and wreaths to flower pots and garland, there are so many craft projects to choose from.

American Flag Craft
There are a huge variety of flag crafts you can make using a variety of different materials. For my rustic flag, I chose to use driftwood for the stripes. It gives kind of a beachy feel for the whole summer season. a
DIY Rustic USA Sign
Another fun sign for the patriotic holidays is simply to spell out U S A with wooden letters. It works out perfectly for displaying red, white, and blue as well. With three letters and three colors, it’s a perfect match up.
Patriotic Mason Jars
Dress up some mason jars with stars and stripes and a little red, white, and blue. Use them to hold utensils at an outdoor picnic. Or, display fresh flowers for a patriotic centerpiece.
Stars And Stripes Flower Pot
You may already have some clay pots laying around. Dress one or more up for the holidays by painting on some red, white, and blue. For a more rustic look, like this, don’t worry about starting with perfectly straight lines. By the time you sand some of the paint off, it will look like a very intentional distressed pot.
Red White And Blue Banner
Break away from the traditional stars and stripes by creating a banner with various fabrics of red, white, and blue.
DIY Patriotic Wreath
Ribbon or rag wreaths are so easy to put together. Just tie your patriotic strips of fabric to a wire wreath frame.
Easy DIY Flag Pillow
Instead of hanging all of your flags on poles, sew one to some ticking stripe fabric and make a pillow. I love the look of this and it is so easy to do.
Red White And Blue Garland
Create your own red, white, and blue garland by tying strips of fabric to a jute cord. Easy peasy and oh so festive!
