How I love every patriotic holiday! They are my favorite, and I absolutely adore celebrating them in every way, including decor, yummy food, cute things for my kids to wear…all of it! I’m also into simple, and my favorite projects are those that don’t take a lot of time, but look like they did. :) I’ve gathered 8 of my most favorite patriotic ideas & projects that I’ve posted over the years, and put them all in one spot, just for you! They’re perfect for all the patriotic holidays over the next couple of months, starting with Memorial Day, then Flag Day, and Independence Day. Put them up now, you can keep them up pretty much the whole summer!

Polka Dot & Striped Flag Blocks
I adore polka dots and stripes, and I combined the two to make a super cute and super EASY 4×4 block set. They’re also inexpensive, which makes it pretty much perfect. :)
Burlap Flag Pillow
Burlap is just one of those fabrics that’s hard to resist! I added stars & stripes to a burlap slipcover to make a darling pillow perfect for my couch, entry bench, or even guest bed!
Burlap Stars & Stripes Bunting
Oh, buntings. I’m totally and completely in love with them, and hang them for every holiday! This super cute bunting is so easy, and perfect to go across a front porch, mantel, window, or doorway!
Patriotic Popcorn Lollipops
These are just SO fun and yummy! Perfect for any patriotic holiday, kids love to help make them and eat them. You can also change up the sprinkles and make them for any holiday or birthday!
Easy Flag Blocks
I made these years ago, and they’re still a favorite! I used 2×4’s to create a simple but adorable flag, and they look so cute on a shelf, counter, table, or mantel!
Ruffled Ribbon Flag Tee
I love dressing my kids up in red, white and blue on patriotic holidays, and often times I’ll just grab stuff from their closets we already have. Sometimes though, I like to make something cute, and these darling ruffled ribbon flag tees were SO easy and quick! They look cute all year round! And if you’re thinking you can’t sew, so you can’t do this project, don’t worry–if I can do this, you can too!
Patriotic Sugar Cookie Cups
Oh my. There’s not much I love more than frosted sugar cookies, but I always love the frosting the best. These super cute cookie cups are a way to get more frosting. :) They’re easy, especially when you use my favorite sugar cookie mix, and always look darling on a plate. Perfect to serve at any BBQ or party!
This is an oldie, but a goodie! I really love beadboard, and it’s kind of perfect for making a flag with all the lines already drawn in place! It’s super cute hanging on my front door, sitting on your front step, over a mantel, or on a shelf. You can make it ANY size you like–small or huge!
I hope you’re inspired, and found something you can’t wait to make! Happy crafting!
