Add A Little Red, White, and Blue

1. Red, White, and Blue Paper Lanterns

With a warm glow, paper lanterns are ideal 4th of July decorations for RVers. You can find red, white, and blue paper lanterns at Target, and purchase them online or in a store. Just make sure you have a small light to place inside if you’d like your lantern to glow.

3. Patriotic Chalk Art

If your campsite comes with a concrete patio, patriotic chalk art is a great choice for adding some red, white, and blue to your outdoor experience. You can encourage the kids to exercise their creativity with popular chalk art designs like:

  • Fireworks
  • American flag
  • Bald eagle

4. Pinwheel Wreath

Red, white, and blue pinwheels are traditional decorations for the 4th of July. Premade options are available, but why not make your own? These patriotic pinwheels are a great project to get the kids involved in, and requires only patterned paper, hot glue, and an embroidery hoop.

6. Transportation Decorations

If you bring your bicycle, or rent a golf cart while camping, you can transform it into a mobile display of red, white, and blue. Crafty additions like streamers, pom poms, and stars add a festive twist to your ride for the 4th of July.

7. DIY Planter Rockets

Bottle rockets may not be allowed, but you can channel the same spirit with DIY paper rockets for planters. This is a craft that requires a bit of effort, but the result is quite creative. Add the paper rockets to your planters for a patriotic presentation!

4th Of July Flower Bouquet8. Red, White, and Blue Flower Bouquets

Last, but certainly not least, are red, white, and blue flower bouquets. Premade arrangements can be found at many flower shops and retail locations, or you can buy flowers in each color to make your own bouquets. Either way, you’ll have an elegant and attractive floral display for the 4th of July.

It’s great fun to create 4th of July decorations for your campsite, but don’t keep the crafts to yourself. Pass this post along to your friends and fellow RVers and invite them to join you in an Independence Day decorating contest!
