The first room to be styled for summer is our music room. I got a new decor piece that I just couldn’t wait to decorate! While this wall hanging planter can be used year round, my first thought was how perfect it would be to add some simple patriotic wall decor that could easily transition to regular summer decor too!

How to Make Simple Patriotic Wall Decor

- Package of small flags
- Blue striped pillows
- Fresh plants
- Vintage blue books

1. Start with a Simple Patriotic Decor Inspiration Piece
This wall hanging planter from @eveagetools is such a budget-friendly way to make a great statement! Gathered items, featured in a collection, always draw the eye and what better way to display my small flags than in a simple patriotic decor collection?!
To hang this wall hanging planter, I added a rusty old nail to the frame of my mirror. Next, I simply hung the planter and added the glass vases. After that, I added small fern and palm branches, freshly cut from the trees in my yard and then added my flags.
When I am ready to transition to regular summer decor (or any other season!), I can use this wall hanging planter by just removing the flags and adding seasonal flowers or greenery. I also have an idea to use it to propagate some of my pothos plants, but that’s for another day, another post! 😉
I absolutely love having decor pieces that I can use in different parts of my home and especially when it can be used in so many fun ways, year round! This wall hanging planter is a perfect focal point over a mantel, in a gallery wall, to add life and dimension in a hallway, or even in a kitchen or bathroom! For just over $20, the size is perfect to be a statement piece!
2. Using your inspiration piece, add a few more simple patriotic decor touches
Note: you’re just adding a few touches! If you want to redecorate everything for the summer holidays, go for it! However, if you’re looking for simple and quick, you can still have a festive and beautiful space.
After hanging and decorating my inspiration wall hanging planter, I took a few more flags and added them to my existing summer decor. You can see from this “before” picture that it was so easy to give it a patriotic look in a matter of minutes!
Here is my regular summer decor for this space:
And here is after 5 minutes of adding simple patriotic decor:
Create a neutral summer decor base to enjoy all season!
Summer is truly one of my favorite things to decorate for, both the patriotic holidays and regular summer decor too. Living in Florida, I love the chance to add a little bit of vintage coastal. As a result, my regular summer decor served as a perfect base to add these simple patriotic decor touches!
Even if you don’t leave patriotic decor out all season, you can have a lot of fun with some simple summer decor. After that, it’s easy to add a few flags and get an instant patriotic look. I especially love using blue in my summer decor and love how it blends perfectly with the patriotic touches.
You can find some of my favorite ways to decorate for summer and get that vintage coastal look over on THIS POST!
