More decorating for Independence Day

Dig out the reds from Christmas or Valentine's Day. Blue anything goes - flowers, baskets, vases, napkins, rugs... Use white (sheet, paper, dinnerware, tablecloth, etc.) to set it off.

Stars are part of it all. Make stars of all sizes from aluminum foil or colored paper and hang or tape everywhere.

Decorate for Independence Day

Tie several 18 inch pieces of red, blue and white yarn or crochet thread together at one end, then attach them to your radio antenna or gateposts, or hang them around your patio or from tree branches where a breeze will catch them. Instead of yarn or thread, cut narrow strips of cloth or plastic grocery bags.
