I've become enamored with printable greeting cards from Etsy. I love these, especially when I need a card at the last minute (I tend to procrastinate). Well, there's more than just greeting cards available to help when a holiday or special occasion sneaks up on you. For instance, check out these patriotic printables and cute decor, instant downloads, perfect DIY for the 4th of July!

If you're in need of party decor, consider this gorgeous red, white, and blue printable banner, pictured above. It's easy to print, cut, and display using card stock (pick up a pack at Walmart) and twine or ribbon. What drew me to this banner were the stripes, plaids, and dots that make up the designs for each letter and the stars that go in between the words. This will go together quickly and make a beautiful way to greet your guests no matter where you hang it.

Having a photo booth at your party? Everyone loves photo booths, especially when the host provides fun props. Take a look at these 4th of July Photo Booth Props, printables designed by TheQuirkyQuail on Etsy. With this very inexpensive set of printable files, a few sheets of card stock, a pair of scissors, tape, and straws or skewers, you'll have the perfect activity for your Independence Day party guests. So, who wants to be Uncle Sam? How about the Statue of Liberty (my personal favorite)? These red, white, and blue designs are fabulous!

Cupcakes, anyone? Turn a simple white on white cupcake into a special occasion dessert with these cute, printable, patriotic cupcake toppers. Last minute? No problem! Print out this set of six different designs as many times as you need to, cut out each topper, tape or hot glue them to sucker sticks, and let everyone choose their favorite designer cupcake for dessert. (I like the gold cupcake liners used in this picture; remember to pick those up, too, when you buy your cake mix.)

"I'm on a budget. How much do these printable files cost?"

Another thing I like is that the downloadable, printable files that I've shown you here won't break your holiday party budget. They range in price from about $3 to less than $7 so they're very affordable. What you actually buy on Etsy is the downloadable file (usually PDF or JPG) which you can re-use (for personal use only) as often as you like. Save them on your computer to use again next year or whenever the next patriotic occasion sneaks up on you!

"I love these patriotic printables! Give me more!"

Happy to oblige! There are hundreds more patriotic printables to choose for your party or special holiday event, including party invitations for those of you who are organized enough to plan ahead, (I hope you don't procrastinate like I do.) Use this link to browse, and have fun!

  1. These are all really great ideas! Since I enjoy making cupcakes, I love the cupcake toppers. How very cool! The banners are great for a last minute decoration. Sometimes I get a little burst of energy right before a party and think "I need something more", but I don't have time to run to the store or maybe can't leave what is in the over. Using downloadable printables is a great solution!

    1. Glad you like the cupcake toppers! Don't you love those "I need something more" moments? I agree, the banner is a great solution. Well said, Cynthia. Thank you so much!

  2. I love printables! And I am totally patriotic! So these patriotic printables are right up my alley. The cupcake toppers are darling!
