4. Painted Lawn Stars
Okay, this is not really decor per say, but I think this is such a creative idea if you’re hosting a 4th of July party or barbecue and have a big lawn. It will really add to the fun and excitement of an Independence Day celebration.
The paint the author used is construction marking paint intended for grass which you can find at any home improvement store. The paint will NOT kill the grass but it is permanent. This means you will only get it off by letting the grass grow out and then mowing it off (worth it in my opinion).

5. Star Candles
If you’ve got some plain white candles you can turn them into these star candles for minimalist Independence Day decorations.
Just get some blue and red star stickers and white candles and you’re good to go!

6. American Flag Pillow
To create this flag pillow, the author used an old sweater with an embroidered American flag and turned it into this cute pillow cover.
You can also recreate this look with a blank white pillow by sewing or by gluing a small American flag onto the pillow.

7. American Flag Mason Jars
Adding some 4th of July spirit to your home can be as easy as jazzing up a couple of mason jars!
You can paint your mason jars or just add the American flag to them and then use them however you like. I would put flowers in them!

8. Pallet Flag
With some paint and a wooden pallet, you can easily recreate this wooden pallet flag for your front porch.
Of course, you don’t necessarily have to use a large pallet to do this. You can also do something similar with a smaller pallet and hang it on your door or wall for some 4th of July decorations.
