Patriotic Decorations: Memorial Day Crafts and 4th of July Arts and Crafts

I love to decorate for the holidays, but there are only a few summer holidays when I can get out my DIY patriotic decorations!

Decorating For Patriotic Holidays

You can count on the patriotic holidays to get you through the summer!  On this page you’ll find fun and festive patriotic decorations, such as Memorial Day crafts and 4th of July arts and crafts, to show your American pride.

We have many home decorations, along with patriotic jewelry, party favors, and clothing, as a start.

Looking for a patriotic flair to add to your American holiday decor?  Before the fireworks begin, make some sensational patriotic decorations for your home. 

Outdoor Patriotic Decorations

We have many tutorials for various wreaths that would look great on any front door to welcome guests. 

I found the duct tape wreath very unique and so easy.  Simply cut and fold the tape over onto itself!  It’s easy enough for the kids to make this 4th of July craft, and it looks very festive.

Be sure to look at our page of patriotic crafts for kids, too!

I think the duct tape wreath will be my patriotic wreath for this year!  And it’s waterproof; perfect for my front door without a storm door to keep the rain off. 

You can spruce up the entryway of your home by adding any of the additional outdoor decorations, such as a rustic flag planter or the patriotic American flag pallet. Together they make a stunning front porch display!

Looking for more patriotic flair to add to your outdoor American holiday decor?  

Before the parade and fireworks begin, put together a quick American Flag decoration for indoors or out.

There are links to several sites, helping you to create a “rags and ribbons” American flag craft.  Some are rustic and rough, and others are soft with lace.

You simply tie the ribbons, lace, and fabric onto a straight piece of wood.  They are perfect for waving in the wind in your yard.

Speaking of your yard, check out the red, white, and blue duct tape hammock!  What a fun and useful patriotic decoration to enjoy all summer long!

Indoor Patriotic Decorations

Looking for something special to decorate the inside of your home for the 4th of July?  Try the 4th of July centerpiece crafts that we have! 

You’ll find several links to different table top centerpieces for your home, like the painted pot with whimsical lolli-flowers!

We also have some great Memorial Day crafts to add to the spirit of things.  Look for the inexpensive bunting banner made with items from the Dollar Tree!  You can use this splash of color indoors or out.

There is another tutorial for a banner to use strictly indoors, too.

You'll find several patriotic decorations made from jars, perfect for decorating or for party favors!  If you’re looking for more party favors, the rocket party favors are easy as American Pie!

Another Memorial Day craft or 4th of July craft would be one of the various styles of patriotic flag coasters!  Look below for the video tutorials to make these for your next BBQ!  They would also make great summer hostess gifts!

Macrame is really popular right now, and the pretty macrame wall hanging would be nice indoors.  All you need is a straight stick or wooden dowel, some patriotic red, white, and blue yarn, and some assorted artificial flowers (and glue, of course) to make this simple yet stylish piece to hang on your wall!

Patriotic Clothing to Show Your Pride

You can find patriotic crafts to create your Memorial Day, 4th of July, or even President’s Day clothing, totes, and jewelry. 

You’ll look so stylish in the professional looking, yet easy to make, patriotic T-shirt made from red and blue bandanas and some Heat and Bond.  You’d pay A LOT to purchase one like this!

And don't miss the oh-so-cute little patriotic dress for your little one!  It's just adorable!  You can make a headband to match.
