Touches of Red, White and Blue

I love getting peeks inside other’s homes, so I thought I would share how I add touches of red, white, and blue around my house this time of year.

Here is a look at how I decorated our patio area.

I love my chalkboard this year.

Last weekend I painted a few mason jars and have used them to fill full of flags.

I also have one mason jar full of flags in our living room.

The kids made this rocket garland that I love. It might be my favorite decoration.


I also hung a bunting across our barn windows.

And it wouldn’t be my home without a candle burning.

Do you decorate for the 4th of July or summer? I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

    1. I like that you put it out before Memorial Day. I was thinking about doing that as I was putting it up. Great idea. Then we could enjoy it a little longer!

  1. Looks fantastic. I am LOVING your chalkboard this year too. I need to do one more regular one and then figure out what I want for the week of the 4th. I try and change it every week…. but sometimes I don’t ;).

    1. Thanks Susan, I love the little flags too! I always pick them up on clearance after the 4th because I know I will always need more the next year! 🙂

    1. You can use chalk paint or acrylic paint. I used acrylic (because I had the colors already on hand). Just make sure when you use the acrylic paint to let each coat (I used 2 coats with a sponge brush) dry for at least 24 hours before adding the next coat or the paint will peel. I will be painting them all the time now 🙂
