Cool idea: turn food into stars! Use a cookie cutter to make five-pointed watermelon bites.
Homemade patriotic chalk
There’s nothing better than covering the street with chalk murals in the summertime. Keep the kiddies (or adults) occupied at your backyard bash with homemade red, white, and blue star-shaped chalk. Just mix plaster of Paris with dye, pour into molds and get to it.
Show off your patriotism with a wreath made of cardboard stars and yarn stripes. Buy a plain straw wreath (tip: don’t remove the plastic wrapping), some balls of red, white, and blue yarn, and wrap until you have a beautiful American flag design.
