Our contribution to the Red White and Blue hop takes on a more rustic note with darker reds and blues and a hint of aged white paint.  Or you could create the fun and whimsical 4th of July party decorations with a traditional color combination.  Either way use solid colors and simple shapes for the star spangled banner.  These 4th of July party decorations are very easy to make and you can have the kids help you.  You can add a pop of pattern in the paper flower decorations.
