How to Make a Patriotic Wall Decor

It is that time of year again to decorate with your patriotic decor. If you are looking for a creative way to bring more decor to the walls of your home then this patriotic wall decor with ribbons is exactly what you are looking for!

The best and easiest way to add patriotic décor to your home is by making new wall décor to hang. You can easily accomplish this by using some stencils a scrap piece of wood you likely have already in your home. I love that when I am ready to make something new for my home I mostly have all I need right in my craft room or garage!

Making new décor doesn’t have to be expensive or super hard. This would even match perfectly to the already USA wood sign you have made.

I love summers because of all the time we spend outside with friends and family. We have BBQ’s, and even all come together to celebrate America for the 4th of July. This year I wanted to add something new to my patriotic décor by adding something unique and fun to my walls.

I decided that making a new patriotic wall décor with ribbon would be perfect. Using my patriotic stencils, barn wood, and just a few different ribbons I was able to accomplish new décor in less than an hour.

You too can create this for your home. It is simple and you likely have all the supplies already in your home. Watch the tutorial below to see exactly how I did it!

Supplies needed:

  • 18-inch board 
  • Stain for wood
  • Variety of Ribbon
  • Patriotic Stencils
  • Hot Glue
  • Sponge Dauber
  • Red, white, & Blue Paint

Steps to Make a Patriotic Wall Décor with ribbons

  1. Stain your wood and allow it to dry.
  2. Take about 8 different colors and patterns of ribbon that you have and cut them all the same length. 
  3. Turn your board over so the back is facing up. You will glue your precut ribbon using hot glue to the back of the board. I space out the thinnest ribbons first and spread them out along the board so you are able to alternative patterns and colors. Continue gluing the ribbon across the board until you have placed all your cut ribbons.
  4. Flip your board over and trim down some of the longer hanging ribbons so that all of them are the same length. 
  5. Once you have them all placed and glued to the board you can go back with a stapler and give them an extra anchor. 
  6. Place the stencil on top of your board and start adding paint using your sponge dauber and filling in your stencil of choice. I choose to put “America the Beautiful” on the left side in red paint.
  7. Then on the right side, I stenciled “Land that I love” in red paint as well
  8. Allow the paint on both sides to dry before adding the stars to the middle
  9. Then once dried using your star stencils, stencil red, white, and blue stars.

Ways to add patriotic decor outside

When it comes to decorating patriotic there is no need to have all your décor on the inside. There are plenty of ways to show your love for America outside as well as inside. I love decorating the entryway of my home with a large America Sign and some wooden firecrackers placed around it. You can also add a small garden flag, some beautiful potted plants, and I have seen some people do some cute stars in their grass using stencils and all-purpose flour. Get creative when it comes to adding patriotic decor outside! The possibilities are endless.
