Show off your American pride with a trio of patriotic paint cans (#60689, #27318). Display flowers or candles, or put them to work during outdoor gatherings as holders for plastic flatware and grilling utensils.
Display miniature versions of Old Glory (#83957) with simple flag stands. Drill a hole into the top of each post cap, then spray-paint (Valspar Silver Fox shown) to finish the stands.
Create your own piece of Americana with DIY flag-inspired art. Fasten vertical wooden strips to horizontal cleats. Paint a field of blue, then paint red and white stripes. Hang it from your porch roof to show off your spirit and add privacy.
Red, White, and Blue—and Green
Bring new life to a celebration with these hanging planters. Paint metal buckets (#546961), add pots of colorful flowers, and hang the buckets from a railing or post using plant hangers (#149674).
On a Roll
The Fourth of July is a time for outdoor games. Make up your own using oversize dice cut from 3 x 3 lumber. A bucket makes for simple storage and also acts as a dice cup.
