Party Ideas Worth Copying: 4th of July Pictures and DIY Crafts
Celebrate our nation with these fun craft ideas and easy projects from these 4th of July pictures.
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.
Make your evening barbecue glow with homemade luminaries decorated with colored tissue paper and ribbons.
Make your own rocket-shaped party favors. These cute poppers are so fun even grown-ups will want in on the excitement.
Red, white and blue Americana
Simple nostalgia: a white picket fence draped with American flags from the dollar store.
Set your 4th of July party apart by turning a watermelon into a drink dispenser. Cut the top off a watermelon and hollow it out. Insert a spigot, pour in your bunch and let the good times flow.
Celebrate stars and stripes
Make a statement using red, white, and blue paint chips.
Festive sippy cups for grown-ups
Give summery mason jars a 4th of July touch by covering the lids in festive scrapbook paper, punching a hole and sticking in a straw for fun sipping. It’s so simple you can make it ahead of time or lay out the materials and let guests create their own.
