Fourth of July Craft Ideas

The fourth is in a couple days! It’s a time when we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence declaring our independence from Great Britain. As Americans we love to celebrate with BBQ’s, picnics, parades, and fireworks so why night liven them up a bit more?  All of these crafts are quite simple, make a great table scape,  and can definitely be achieved by the fourth!

Here are some of my favorite patriotic crafts from Martha Stewart… such inspiring fourth of July craft ideas! Click on this link for how-to instructions.

  • Star Medallion
  • Can-Do Cans
  • Clothespin Pinwheel
  • Fireworks Table Setting
  • Patriotic napkin Rings
  • Red, White, and Blue Medallion


The Can-Do Cans are extremely simple to make and can be made out of old food containers.  Cover them with decorative scrapbook paper and double sided tape, and they can fit any theme or celebration.  Use pastels for a baby shower or bold colors for a birthday party.  Holding snacks like breadsticks or pretzel rods isn’t the only use!  These recycled cans make great plastic utensil holders or flower vases.

The clothespin pinwheels also add a whimsical spin on any theme party.  Easily crafted out of any colored or patterned scrapbook paper, you can make these in a jiffy.  Another creative idea is to use pages of old books to make pinwheels as well.  Use children’s books, comic books, or novels, depending on the occasion.
