With the 4th of July celebration right around the corner, we wanted to share a few ideas to help your decorate your home or garden area for any parties you may have scheduled. We like to see clay flowerpots use as planters, party favors & more. Any kind of garden planter can be used to create fun and patriotic garden decor. Below are some easy and fun crafts and more.
A really simple idea. Take some red geraniums and repot them into terracotta clay flower pots. This looks nicer than the plastic nursery pots they come home in. Set the flower pots around your patio or garden area in groups of clusters. This makes the flowers look happier and not as lonely as only one planter all by itself.
Take a vintage picnic basket and fill with nursery bought flowers in red, white & blue. Add a few small American flags and some sparkly flower picks and you have created the perfect centerpiece for your patio or porch table. The basket makes a unique & adorable garden planter with hardly any expense. We love seeing recycled items turned into flower pots.
Take plastic buckets, terra cotta clay flower pots or any kind of container and fill with fun items for your party guests. Bubbles, Mini American Flags, head crowns & sparkly bands. This type of party favor is beloved by adults and well as kids. We would add sparklers, charcoal snakes and any other kid friendly fireworks.
Lastly, we just want to show that you don't always need to decorate for the 4th of July with Red White and Blue colors. Here a kitchen colander has been turned into a wonderful plant container filled with red & yellow flowers. By adding a small American Flag to the planter it makes it look festive & original. Decorate your porch or patio using the colors of your other landscape items. Just add the flag and it ties it right into the Independence celebration.
