Going clockwise, here are four super simple but super stylish 4th of July decor ideas!

1. Vintage pitchers with American flags. Want to get the vintage look on your dollar store American flags? Steep 2 cups of Lipton tea, soak flags in tea until they have reached desired color, let dry and voila! Stick the flags in a vintage pitcher and you have a simple & chic decoration.

2. Blue Ball Jars. It doesn’t get more Americana than the blue Ball mason jars. Purchase some red and white blooms and there you have it – a red white and blue centerpiece! Since the jars are so versatile, you’ll have the around to use for tons of other projects!

3. Cobalt Vintage Bottles. These cobalt blue vintage bottles pair perfectly with seasonal red poppies for a pop of patriotic color. Add a small American flag and you have a simple and easy 4th of July decor.

4. Pinwheels in watering cans. This decoration couldn’t be easier! Find red, white and blue pinwheels stick them 2-3 to a watering can and place the watering cans on your porch steps, patio, or in your garden.
