Last week’s round-up of Fourth of July cake recipes has been such a hit, I thought I’d keep the red, white, and blue coming with a new set of ideas! Here are crafty decor and food ideas that make for a star-spangled Independence Day.

1. Star fruit pops on a stick

2. Easy peasy straw decorations – you could make these using a star-shaped paper punch

3. Fourth of July star lanterns – apply star cut-outs to a paper lantern using mod podge

4. Star-spangled wavers – see instructions below

5. Patriotic ice cream sandwiches – the stars are red velvet shortbread, and the ice cream is cheesecake flavor!

6. Fourth of July star spangled paint chip banner
