Fourth of July Front Door Decoration


This may be one of my most favorite patriotic trash to treasure projects I’ve done. I had some left over laminate flooring planks from the repurposed DIY projects I did for Best Laminate.  I made a coat hanger, coasters, and a welcome sign out of them. So, with Independence Day coming up, I thought I’d make a Fourth of July Front Door Decoration for my house.

Time: Approximately 1 hour


I chose this board. The color is called, Oahu. It has some nice white tones which are perfect for my stars and stripes.

Laminate Flooring Repurposed

I painted the stripes first. I used painters tape to tape them off starting at about a third of the way down the plank.

Upcycled Floor Board

I covered the area I did not want painted with paper and spray painted it red. I let it dry for about 15 minutes and took off the tape.

While the red paint dried, I made and printed out some stars.  I cut out the entire page totaling twelve stars.

I arranged them on the plank and secured them with double sided tape.

I sprayed over the stars with blue spray paint outside.

Once the blue paint was dry, I lightly sanded over the entire flag to dull the paint a little.

I placed it by my front door next to the matching repurposed welcome sign I made.
