A mantlepiece is a perfect place to add 4th of July home decor. You can go as over the top or as simple as your want.

Try styling the mantle with vintage items like old vases, lanterns, or candlesticks. These will be your red, white, and blue accents. Then, hang some red, white, and blue LED lights to add a little sparkle.

You could also go for a traditional pleated fan bunting. Another option is to accent the mantle with a triangle bunting in red, white, and blue.

If you have a large space above the mantle, you could even add a large 4th of July wreath to complete the look.


#4 Spread a patriotic tablecloth

There are several ways to style a dining table for the 4th of July. You can start by adding a patriotic tablecloth. This patriotic buffalo plaid style tablecloth isn’t too over the top. But, it still adds that hint of the holiday with the red, white, and blue coloration and the stars along the pattern.

If you don’t want to invest in a full tablecloth, opt instead for a table runner. There are so many styles and patterns to choose from. Try to go with something with a more basic design, like this one. Then, you can really go wild with the centerpiece.


#5 Make your centerpiece sparkle

The 4th of July celebration is synonymous with fireworks. You can create a centerpiece inspired by these beautiful lights in the sky.

Take an old vase or jar, and add red, white, and blue accents. These could be floral picks, glittery stars, or even sparkly, grass-like picks. Tie a patriotic ribbon around it and voila! The perfect 4th of July centerpiece.

Another option is to get three of these white lanterns. Paint one red and another blue. Then, leave the last one white. These have a rustic look that isn’t too overdone but still screams patriotic indoor decor.


#6 Light patriotic candles


If you don’t want the traditional floral look, you could go for Patriotic candles. These 4th of July wooden tealight candle holders are beautiful and simple. They would look classic in the center of an entryway table.

They might also look good on a coffee table in your living room. You could even use them as a centerpiece for your dining table.

You could also opt for a cheaper alternative. Get three jars, and paint them red, white, and blue. You could even add little stick-on star stickers while you paint them. Then, when you remove the stickers, there will be little glimpses of the clear glass beneath.

Grad some tea lights, and put them in. Now, you’re ready to place these red, white, and blue accents anywhere in your home.


#7 Include 4th of July knickknacks
