|Setting a patriotic mood for your garden decor is simple with so many garden flags available today. Garden flags come in many different sizes, shapes and colors, and can be used to enhance any area or decorative item in your garden.
Patriotic Garden Decor the Simple Way
Creating a patriotic look and feel in your garden doesn't have to be boring or complicated. The colors of red, white and blue can be arranged in many different fashions to create variety.
Your decor doesn't have to be limited to the stars and stripes either. There are hundreds of styles and emblems that create an Americana decor, such as flags with eagles painted on, flags with Americana crafts, embroidery or other stylish designs. Denim fabric is always a winner with patriotic designs as well.
Placing Patriotic Garden Flags Where It Counts
Your garden entrance can say "Welcome to My Garden" with patriotic welcome flags. Create an archway with two flags facing one another, or simply place one patriotic flag on the right or left side of your entrance. Those entering will sense right away that your garden speaks a message of "freedom!"
Flower Beds and Garden Paths
Add the red, white and blue colors to your flower beds or garden paths with a patriotic garden flag. There are flags that can be placed in the ground using stakes or hung above. Keep in mind that your patriotic flags can have other colors in their design as well. The stars may be a different color along with various shades of navy and red. Bright yellow stars fit well with flowers and will enhance the floral colors.
Other Patriotic Items to Consider
Instead of limiting your patriotic decor to garden flags only, you can add other decor figurines and items to your garden to really make it stand out. Some other items that can often be found in gorgeous patriotic designs are birdhouses and bird feeders, hammocks, wagons, wheelbarrows, picnic tablecloths and outdoor centerpieces, patriotic windchimes, stepping stones, etc.
Patriotic Fun with the Kids
If you have children or grandchildren, making patriotic crafts with them can be a fun as well as educational activity. Decorate some old buckets or mason jars, or create a scarecrow wearing patriotic clothing. If you have an eye for art along with your green thumb, create a flower bed shaped and colored like an American flag. The kids will enjoy it, and your garden will look terrific!
The patriotic look and feel gives your garden decor a "country livin" atmosphere while also expressing your love for your nation. Don't get stuck in a patriotic rut. Get creative with your patriotic garden flags and other accessories to create a beautiful garden that your neighbors, friends and family will adore.
