The 4th of July is going to be here before we know it, so I thought I’d better switch out of summer decorating and focus a bit on some patriotic decor. This project is super easy and if you have a little bit of scrap wood, can be made for next to nothing.




The first thing you’ll need to do is get the free SVG file you’ll use for this project.  I keep all the SVG files I use for the projects I make in my SVG Library.  These SVG files work with Cricut and Silhouette machines, as well as many others.  This library is open to everyone and is free! You can access the library here. Look for the file called Patriotic Blocks. It will be listed under the under the Patriotic category.

Start by cutting a 2 x 4 into 4 pieces. You’ll need a 2″, 3″, 4″ and 5″.
Paint the 4″ and 5″ white, the 3″ red, and the 2″ blue.
Apply the first layer of vinyl
and then add the second layer of vinyl
Wrap with a patriotic colored bow and you’ve got a super cute, super easy 4th of July decoration.
Don’t you love our patriotic colors? They are so crisp and clean and look so good together.
