Happy Birthday America! Today, I am sharing 4th of July decorating ideas of how I decorate our farmhouse for FREE for Independence Day!
Farmhouse 4th of July Decorating is as simple as you want to make it. It calls for a collection of vintage & unexpected red, white & blue items from around your home, hydrangeas & of course old glory.

The older I get, the more I like my decorations to be double duty.
Rather than buy a lot of specific patriotic decor (other than flags), I like to reuse items from around our home year after year without spending any money on new “decorations.”
This year I kept my 4th of July decorating to just 2 rooms, our front porch and living room.
Putting all the patriotic decor together makes much more of an impact than scattering the decor all around your home.
Keeping your 4th of July decor to just a few rooms requires less time to decorate & put away your decor after the holiday is over.
For most of the year, I do the holiday decorating by myself when the kiddos are in school.
Audrey was excited to help me this year and I was so thankful for her help.
It’s amazing how little ones can really think outside the box. It was her idea to add colored pencils to the blue mason jar 🙂
I definitely would not have thought of using pencils to decorate with but I think the red, white & blue pencils are perfect for 4th of July decorating.
After collecting the pencils, she jumped to the task of drawing a flag to use to decorate with.
Even Moose wanted to help with the decorating, 🙂 Ha, just kidding he was more interested in being apart of the decor.
Vintage red, white & blue croquet & bocce balls in a wooden dough bowl are fun & unexpected decoration on our coffee table.
White hydrangeas in a ball or mason jar are always a good idea no matter what time a year for farmhouse decor.
Thankfully ours have just started blooming so I can decorate with them now till through the fall.
A red lantern, candles and a few american flags give color and warmth to our fireplace mantel for 4th of July decorating.
I also included the DIY patriotic sign I made a few years back because you can never have too much red, white and blue for the 4th of July!
I hope this post inspires you start some inexpensive & simple 4th of July decorating this year.
I am incredibly thankful to everyone that has sacrificed so much to protect the freedoms we enjoy in this amazing country. Have a wonderful Independence Day!
