Are you looking for some great 4th of July crafts? Read on because we’re getting prepped!
We’ve got our crafting minds all ready for the next holiday, which is the 4th of July.
This is actually a big holiday that our family celebrates since we can set off fireworks at the homeplace. We host a big gathering each year and swim and cook out, and then have a big fireworks display.
The only thing that we ask is that each person, or group, that joins us bring one fantastic firework.
We contribute a bunch and by the time everyone arrives we’ve got quite a collection of impressive fireworks to set off.
Earlier in the day we attend the 4th of July parade in our hometown. It’s considered “The Biggest Little Parade in Texas” and it never disappoints. People come from near and far for our hometown parade.

4th of July Decor
Of course we’re always looking for clever and fun holiday decor ideas and we’re never disappointed when we spend time researching.
There are so many great ideas on how to use red, white and blue so we wanted to be sure and share all the fun project that we’ve found with you!
This is a great decoration for inside or outside and super thrifty. You can pick up pool noodles at the dollar store and add some ribbon or garland to them. We'll have these on the front and back porches this year for the 4th of July!
This outdoor garland is perfect since it can withstand the weather. It's made from plastic tablecloths and they are easy to come by in any general or dollar store. We're going to have it on our front gate and around our deck instead of bunting. The bunting is beautiful but it has gotten expensive and it fades so quickly in the Texas sun.
We always use paper straws as decor but we're not such huge fans of drinking with them. They are cute but they seem to get soggy pretty quick. This is a great craft for using some of our collection. We're going to embellish this wreath with stars and hang it on the front door.
Of course we always find amazing projects at a few sites and The House that Lars Built never disappoints. Since we've been concentrating so much on macrame and weaving recently we thought this was a fun project to work on for this years decor. It has a nice americana feel to it and it's certainly right up our alley! This isn't going to be a quick cut and paste type project so we'll post an update when we get it done!
This is a great black and white print that you can download and frame.
You can print it on colored paper or leave it as is and it will make a great addition to your festive decor. We're going to add it into the guest bathroom so that we have a touch of the holiday without going overboard in a small space.
Another, more colorful printable for you. You can easily use this outside (as shown) or inside for your decor. We're planning to frame this print and add it to our table decorations - or the mantle, or both. Why not?
Just some tissue paper and scissors and you've got yourself some great decor here. Bring in all those festive colors and create your own fireworks. These look great on the wall for a photo backdrop, or scattered about the tables for some bright decor.
We seem to have quite a collection of these tiny flags that we wave at the parade every year. Then we put them in a flower pot and then we pack them up for the next year. This is a great idea to upcycle them into a new craft, and the perfect decor for our fireworks party.
Who doesn't have a collection of red solo cups? We'll have to make a special trip to buy the blue ones but we've always got the red ones on hand. These streamers are going to look great hanging in the trees this year.
Of course we’ll have plenty of festive foods to share with you soon too. Strawberries and blueberries are in season and make the perfect color addition for our celebration. There’s no celebration that would be complete without food anyway.
And watermelon. You have to have it on the 4th of July right?
