Happy (almost) Forth of July to our American readers and friends. This week's Six for Saturday is a patriotic round-up of flag inspired ideas for your celebration decorations. Clockwise from upper left:
- Palette Flag (Mother's Niche)
- Tabletop Flag Holders (Lowes)
- Patriotic Ribbon Wreath (LandeeLu)
- Paper Rocket Centerpiece (BHG)
- Burlap Flag Table Runner (Everyday Dishes)
- Painted Wooden Letters (BHG)
Adding a little red, white, and blue (especially if it involves stars or stripes) can make anything feel a little more celebratory for Independence Day, so get creative and have fun! Looking for more fab patriotic ideas? Check out our other American ideas, including last year's Fourth of July round-up below, or visit our Special Holidays and Celebrations Pinterest board. If you would like us to try and create a special post for an upcoming holiday or occasion in your part of the world, drop us a comment here or on Facebook. Variations on this colour-scheme are equally patriotic for many other nations, and I love that many of these DIY ideas can also easily be adapted to other colours and patterns for different nations/occasions.
Looking for more creative ideas? You can try the past Six for Saturday (or Sunday) posts, searching the blog under the DIY type of your preference, or I also have a whole board full of of tutorials and DIY on Pinterest along with stack of other creative pins. If you decide to make something fabulous or post something special this weekend, you are welcome to share here in the comments or post something over at Creativity Unmasked on Facebook. We are all about sharing so, on our page, a little bit of creative self shout-out is a-ok and actively encouraged.
P.S. The dogs at Dalmatian DIY have your patriotic pups covered, too! Check out their no-bake treats (pictured below) and other fun American-themed posts for doggone great ideas. Have fun and stay safe this long weekend, especially if there are fireworks in your area - they can be pretty scary for our pets.
