10 Fabulous DIY Decorations for Labor Day 2023

The end of summer is fast approaching, but there’s still one more big bash before we all properly knuckle back down to work: Labor Day!

Labor Day was set up in the late 1800s as “a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers”. And whilst that of course is a very noble and worthy reason to celebrate, for most of us its primary function is for having fun filled all-American weekends involving picnics, barbecues, firework displays and maybe watching a teeny tiny bit of football!
And as such Labor Day is a great excuse to dig out patriotic decorations and celebrate all that is good and great about our beautiful country! And if you don’t have enough red, white and blue décor left over from your 4th July celebrations then the long weekend is the perfect time to get nifty with some DIY Labor Day décor projects.
