For starters, the perfect outdoor decoration for every occasion are the beautiful wreaths for our doors. I happen to have the perfect idea for 4th of July! All you need to get are wooden clothespins. The wreath itself you can do from a cardboard, if you don’t have craft wire. Paint your clothespins in white, blue and red and decorate with stars as shown on the photo. The stars you can make from the same cardboard, since you are probably going to have some leftovers. This wreath recreates the American flag, which is an essential when it comes to 4th of July decoration. This craft will not take more than 30 minutes!

Are you wondering how to decorate your veranda, patio, or garden for the 4th of July? This is one of the easiest and cheapest decoration idea that you can try in 2023! There are two ways that you can do this craft – you can either use old cans, or toilet paper roll. What do you need:

  • old cans or toilet paper roll
  • satin ribbons (or any other material that you can find)
  • blue paint
  • white paper for the stars
  • glue
  • scissors
  • twine

You can follow the steps on the photo shown below, if you choose to use toilet paper roll, which is actually the easier method. If you want to use canes, then you will have to drill holes inside for the twine, since you have to hang them somewhere. The toilet paper roll method is suitable for toddlers as well!
