If Christmas decorations were peanut butter, a fireplace mantel would definitely be jelly, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give our mantels some holiday love year-round! The 4th of July provides a perfect opportunity to showcase your festive spirit in shades of red, white and blue, and in honor of the occasion, we’re saluting five of our favorite ideas for 4th of July mantel decorations.
Red, White, and Plenty of Blue
Courtney of Diamond in the Stuff created her simple yet eye catching 4th of July mantel using a nine-pane window she rummaged out of her garage! Patriotic signs and a big star complete the festive look, with Courtney even showing you how to create the USA map sign for yourself on her blog.
For Amber Waves of Grain
We are standing at attention for these rustic, old-Americana themed 4th of July mantel decorations from Thoughts from Alice . It’s light and bright with perfect notes of red and blue, making a patriotic statement while still being design savvy.
From Sea to Shining Sea
Jen from Tatertots and Jello took the phrase “from sea to shining sea” quite literally when it came time to create this gorgeous, nautical-inspired holiday spread. Her patriotic nod to “America the Beautiful” paired with some clever design flair definitely has us cheering “USA! USA!”
An Ode to the National Anthem
With so much of our nation’s history revolving around music, we found ourselves singing with joy at the sight of this melodically-inspired 4th of July mantel. Jessica and Mandy of Little Birdie Secrets framed sheet music and paired it with the stars and stripes to create a perfect harmony of patriotic decor.
Festive and Affordable
We salute The Crafted Sparrow and her ability to create this festive and fun 4th of July mantel using items found around the home. A rustic chalkboard easily transforms into a festive tribute to our nation, while colorful books and a baseball help make this mantel an absolute home run.
