Canada Day Ideas

Canada Day ideas to create a festive "true north strong and free"  celebration space.

Canadian Flag Banner

Kids Press Magazine has the perfect free printable Canadian flag banner for Canada Day decorating.  I printed their flags and then glued them to fishing line. I hung them along our rustic coffee service area. A super easy and affordable way to dress up a small or large space for Canada Day.

Canada Day Pinwheel Centerpieces

There are loads of pinwheel templates available online, but the basic principle is to cut a square and then cut from each diagonal corner to about half an inch to an inch from the center (depending on the size of the pinwheel you plan to make).

You can use anything from wrapping paper to printed designs to make pinwheels. I've even used fabric pressed onto paper with fusible web. The skies the limit. 

Get your kids involved and have them colour or add stickers to plain paper or use any kind of element (plastic, fabric, foil, etc.) that can be flexed and glued to create a custom look that fits you, your event, and your venue.

Whatever you choose, pinwheels are so simple to make. 

Canada Day Pinwheel Centerpieces


Supplies Needed:

  • Plain paper or pre-printed paper (my raw template)
  • Printer (if not using pre-printed paper)
  • Squares of red and white designs or anything distinctly Canadian to print
  • Glue stick
  • Thumb tacks
  • Pencils with erasers (preferably with a white, red, grey, or black exterior 

    Side Note: I ran out of pencils and slipped white straws over skewers to use for the other pinwheel sticks I needed.

  • Floral foam
  • Something to cover the foam. I used circles of black plastic tablecloths, but I have also used shredded paper.
  • Small metal pails
