I think I’ve mentioned before that the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. My parent’s have lived in the same house on this little lake for almost 50 years. It’s a lake tradition to celebrate the 4th of July in a pretty big fashion. When I was a child all the families that had vacation homes around the lake would travel to their cottages for that week and we would spend the days making memories to last a lifetime. Some of my favorite friends and favorite memories are from those days. After I grew up and moved away from home the lake association where my parents live actually started organizing an official 4th of July Celebration. When my siblings and I started having kids of our own the traditions of this celebration just grew and became all the more special and we all return home to celebrate. The holiday is about our Nation’s freedom and independence but it’s also about family and coming together to celebrate all we are so fortunate to have. This year I’ve made special Printable 4th of July Decorations for my favorite holiday, using the words from one of my favorite songs about our great Nation. I hope you enjoy!
Printable 4th of July Decorations
- Free 4th of July Printable
- Card Stock
- Empty Frame
- Ribbon or Lace
Instructions For Printable 4th of July Decorations:
Print out several of the free 4th of July Printables on card stock using colored ink. I used white card stock but this would look pretty on an antique looking paper as well. Simply right click on the image of the printable below to save it and print.
I used a black frame to match the rest of my decor but a white, red, or blue frame would be very nice. Remove the glass from the frame and slip your Printable 4th of July Decoration into the frame. You may have to trim it depending on the size it prints at and the size of your frame.
Before placing the back onto the frame, slip a piece of lace or ribbon between the printable and the frame. Loop it up loosely and tie it in a bow. This is what you’ll use to hang your Printable 4th of July Decorations.
This can be hung on the wall or even on a door! If you’d rather it can be stood in an easel and used as a table decoration. You can do one for the buffet table and several for the celebration room walls.
It would look great with our DIY 4th of July Paint Chip Pennant Banner! Alternatively, you could hole punch both sides of the printout and use several of these to make a banner with some twine. You could even cut the Printable 4th of July Decorations pages into strips and hole punch them in the corner and tie one to each place setting. Cute bottle rocket crafts can make a great centerpiece for your table too. I’d love to see your finished product!
