Sharing some easy patriotic front porch ideas to spruce up your porch for Memorial Day, 4th of July or Labor Day!

Welcome to our front porch, summer edition! With the summer holidays approaching, I wanted to add a touch of red, white and blue to our front porch. But I didn’t want to spend a fortune. I’m showing you how to easily create a patriotic front porch using some things you may already have on hand and just adding a few little seasonal accents.

And as always, I’ve linked everything so you can shop and re-create the look!

For the door

I already had a boxwood wreath on the door. So rather than get a whole new wreath, I just added some red, white and blue ribbon.

Faux Plants

How to easily create a patriotic front porch - black planter box with faux ferns, hydrangeas and a flag

I had bought these faux hydrangeas back in March for our planter boxes. The quality is so amazing, they even feel real! The blue color is so beautiful for summer!

To fill your planter boxes, I like to take paper shopping bags and crumple them up and then put them in the box to add some height. Then I put in these faux ferns and then added in my faux hydrangeas.

I got these car flags from The Dollar Store which work perfectly for the planter boxes.

I’m linking some of the things I used for my planter boxes below so you can recreate the look.

    Great ideas. I’ve been contemplating using faux flowers in a very shady area. Yours look great, now I’m inspired and on the look out for some.

    Love that you use the boxwood wreath all year long. Just a change of ribbons! Like the layered rugs too.
