While the flag is a staple of patriotic decorations, there are more ways to decorate it whenever you want to show your patriotism. The best part is that you can make a fun project out of everything by tackling a few DIY projects.
All year long, we celebrate our patriotism with flags and other decorations. In the summer months, we amp it up. Especially during July, as we celebrate Independence Day, we decorate our homes in patriotism. DIY projects can be fun for everyone in the family, especially when making these perfect patriotic decorations.

Variety of Patriotic Decorations
Variety is a good idea when it comes to DIY patriotic decor. You will want to try and stick to the colors of the flag, that will make it obvious. But you also want to add a little variety. You can do that by using different pieces. For example, a centerpiece on a table with a runner is perfect for the dining room.
