Are you looking for a great way to show your American pride? Consider dressing up your car for the 4th of July! This day is typically celebrated with family, friends, concerts, BBQs, picnics, baseball games, and fireworks but it can also be fun to display your patriotism for the world to see. Whether you’re going to be driving around or staying home, your vehicle can help express your pride for the holiday. Here’s more information:
Dress Up the Windows
Vinyl window clings are a good way to decorate the windows of your vehicle for the 4th of July. Just make sure they don’t impede your line of sight in any way. You can even use these window clings on the plastic panels of your vehicle. Just make sure they’re clean first. Use flags, stars, fireworks, “USA,” and of course, the red, white, and blue colors.
Use Temporary Paints
Temporary paints, such as Duplicolor’s Car Art Paint, are a great way to decorate your vehicle for the 4th of July. Use paints to write messages such as, “Happy 4th of July” or “Happy Independence Day” on the side of your vehicle. You can also paint stars, stripes, fireworks, the American Flag, and other Independence Day symbols on your car using patriotic colors such as red, white, and blue. These paints are made for this purpose, so they will withstand wind and rain, but are easily removed with soap and water.
Decorate the Roof Rack
If you have a roof rack, you can attach ribbons to it, which will wave as you drive. Just make sure you the ribbons aren’t too long. You can also wrap colored streamers around the roof rack to give it some 4th of July spirit. If you’re going to be in a parade for the holiday, you might consider attaching balloons to the roof rack. You can either have them lie flat or have them raised slightly so they bounce around a little. You can also attach small flags to your roof rack.
Decorate With Colored Tape
Consider using colored painters tape to attach signs to your vehicle for the 4th of July. If your sign is white with red writing, blue tape will be perfect. You may even be able to find Duct Tape with a 4th of July theme! If you don’t want duct tape directly on your vehicle, you can use it as a boarder on your sign. You can even create stars and stripes out of duct tape to decorate signs with. Don’t leave any kind of tape on your vehicle too long though as it may become more difficult to remove. It might be a good idea to do a spot test in an inconspicuous area of the car to see how it handles tape.
More Ideas to Consider:
- If your vehicle has an antenna, you can attach some red, white, and blue colored ribbons.
- Use a 4th of July themed license plate frame.
- Pom-poms in red, white, and blue colors attached to the vehicle.
- Attach red, white, and blue fringes or banner pennant to the bumper or sides of your vehicle.
Make sure that anything you’re attaching to your vehicle is securely fastened and won’t come fly off while you’re driving. You can find everything that you’ll need at most party supply stores. This is a fun way to show pride for your country!
