Pretty much everyone can drink beer and set off fireworks while waving American flags and singing the national anthem, so it’s time to show your patriotism in new and creative ways! Here are some fun and All-American projects and decorations to celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave.
1. The Most American Baby Crib Ever
Instead of throwing away that old and partially broken crib, consider recycling it into an inventive and artistic display of American pride. It certainly looks great on a wall.
2. Patriotic Mason Jars
We have provided a link to the full YouTube tutorial, but this craft comes together pretty quickly and easily. Fill them with flowers or candles. Whatever your patriotic heart desires!
3. American Flag Pallet
Recycling is good for the environment, so do your duty and show your pride by using an old pallet as a canvas for the Star-Spangled Banner.
4. Patriotic Tin Can Windsocks
Talk about a fun and lively way to decorate the exterior! You just need some cans, some colored streamers, and a bit of blue spray paint. Oh, and some string and a way to paint perfect stars.
5. American Flag Made Using Faded Book Pages
Take a page from the past and create a tribute to our beloved flag. Take some old book pages, some watercolor paint, and a bulletin board and create an artistic and stylized version of the American flag.
6. American Flag Made From Painted Sticks
This is a simple and fun activity you can do with the kids! This is also especially great if you find yourself camping on this great holiday of ours. When finished, simply tie them up to form the flag, or nail the pieces to the wall.
7. Lace And Denim American Flag
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Right? Well, if you somehow don’t have a flag to wave around this Fourth of July, make a decorative version out of lace and jeans. All you need is an old pair of jeans, some red and white lace, and a glue gun.
8. Clothing Pin American Flag Wreath
Just spray paint some wooden clothespins, arrange them around a wire, and decorate the surface of the blue ones with glued on stars. It’s weather resistant and beautiful to look at!
9. American Tin Light Features
Color some old tin cans with red, white, and blue. Punch a few holes in the sides and put some candles in them for a stunning and star-filled table display.
10. Give Yourself A Red, White, And Blue Lawn
Use a non-toxic spray paint and cardboard cut outs of stars to give your lawn a splash of patriotic color!
11. Fourth Of July Fruit Skewers
Patriotic and delicious! Carefully arrange skewers of blueberries, raspberries, and marshmallows to make your own edible star-spangled banner.
