Give a nod to the red, white, and blue with these fun craft and decor ideas.
There’s no shortage of fun ways to celebrate Independence Day. There are plenty of 4th of July activities to keep you and the family occupied this time of year. One of our favorites is making patriotic 4th of July crafts. Gather the hot glue gun, a bit of burlap, and every red, white, and blue art supply you can find to bring these festive ideas to life, all of which can do double-duty as party decor. Hosting friends and family? Help make everyone feel at home with DIY flag placemats or decorative star centerpieces. Or, if you’re not planning your own at-home celebration, give your interior the holiday treatment instead with a flag pillow cover, star-adorned dish towel, and burlap banner to hang in the entryway. Don't forget to craft or buy a 4th of July wreath for the front door. Plus, let your kids in on the crafting spree too, with ideas like 4th of July star catchers and mini popsicle stick flags. Once the crafting is complete, the baking can commence. Try our 24 favorite 4th of July cake recipes.
