Star-spangled patriotic crafts

With the 4th of July a month away, there’s plenty of time to whip up some patriotic crafts! These star-spangled, budget-friendly DIY projects are all really charming, and many are quite kid-friendly, too.

1. Glitter tape flag via Number 2 Pencil

2. Painted flag mason jars via It All Started With Paint – these would also be lovely as vases for flowers.

3. Firecracker noise makers via Raising Arizona Kids – a five-minute project made from things you probably already have around the house!

4. Popsicle stick flags via Made From Pinterest – make a bunch, then string them into a garland!

5. Red, white and blue hanging starlight luminaries via I Love To Create

6. Patriotic bandanna tablecloth via Me and My Insanity

7. Let your kids make their mark with a patriotic handprint via B-Inspired Mama

8. Firecracker tie-dye t-shirt via I Love To Create – make them for the whole family and rock matching tees on the 4th. : )

9. Tin can windsocks via The Wilson World – you could make these in all different sizes by using small, medium and large cans.

10. Red, white and blue tabletop luminaries via Crafts For All Seasons

      Hi Amber! Looks like that company redid their website. If you search for it on their website it's still there.
