If you’re looking to throw a great Fourth of July bash while sparing money for colorful festivities and fireworks, you’ll want to take advantage of these affordable ideas for Fourth of July décor and party favors, courtesy of Paper Mart.
Make Your Own Wreath
Wreaths are typically used for fall or winter décor, but adorning them with appropriate Fourth of July colors sparks their appeal for the holiday. While spray painting a basic wreath is an option, creating and personalizing your own wreath with painted clothespins or popsicle sticks makes the process more creative and enjoyable. When you’re finished, add a red, white, and blue bow as a final touch.
Hang Colored Lights
The extensive firework displays in the sky may lead you to think that you don’t need lighting of your own. However, you can still create a backyard wonderland to enjoy before and after the fireworks show. Choose red, white, and blue tea lights, LED lights, or string lights to hang around seating areas. You can also keep it simple with white lights complemented by red and blue paper decorations. Any lighting theme will only enhance the ambiance of your gathering.
Design Chair Sashes
Despite popular beliefs, there can be more to Fourth of July than barbeque and fireworks. This year, consider making your poolside barbeque an elegant garden party. To do so, create an outdoor table setting with chair sashes to enhance the quality of your décor. You can purchase basic white or red sashes and adorn your tablecloth, dinnerware, and centerpieces in blue.
Create Food Party Favors
Regardless of the type of party you throw, a staple of any Fourth of July is great food. If you’re looking to supply your guests with favors they can take home, consider assembling your own candy tins featuring red, white, and blue candies or mints. Be creative! You can decorate the tins yourself using bows, stickers, or paint. Additionally, you can even make your own strawberry and blueberry preserves with whipped cream in glass mason jars to give to your guests.
Make a Flag Garland
For a simple DIY garland, attach triangular pieces of red, white, and blue fabric, paper, and plastic to a string and hang around your house. Since you can easily cut a number of small triangles from almost any material, this project is refreshingly economic. Attach the fabric or paper using staples, a sewing machine, or a glue gun.
