Red white and blue home decor doesn't always have to include stars and stripes and it doesn't have to be seasonal. I decorate with these colors year round. The project I have for you today is a simple blue vase with red geraniums and a vintage white beaded necklace decoration, any season decor. Also our Thrift Store Decor Team is sharing home decor, thrifty DIY, recipes, and new projects, all with the red white and blue color scheme.
I bought the blue Belgium vase at a yard sale right down the road from my house. It and several other items were mine for $12.
This year I bought several baskets of red Geraniums from a local flower stand. I was watering and deadheading the gorgeous red blooms one day when I got the idea to put a stem or two in the blue vase. Then I decided it needed a bit of white for the Summer season. I slipped a necklace strand from my junk jewelry stash over the neck of the vase and now I had a red, white, and blue display for any season.
But then just to make it seasonal I painted a few wood stars with white acrylic paint and hot glued them to the vase after I removed the necklace.
Now I have a simple red, white, and blue display for the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, or Labor Day. See how easy that was! I bet you have a few red, white, and blue pieces you can put together and display this Summer.

I have this old blue metal toy truck filled with red geraniums sitting beside our shed out back.
And the blue and white oriental pot looks great with white begonias and the wood chest painted red sitting in the background.
Another fun DIY using this color scheme are the candleholders I made a couple of years ago. I love pom pom fringe and rickrack.
When we painted and totally redecorated our bedrooms the guest room with white walls now has updated bedding in red, white, and blue.
The nautical pub table and stools was a super fun project. The set is definitely a conversation piece. Nautical Style Furniture With Chevron Painted Stripes
My favorite project using all new supplies is the Patriotic Hat Wreath. I bought everything at the Dollar Tree to make this wreath. Red White And Blue Summer Hat Wreath
