July 4th Crafting Ideas Part 1

Where did June go? Can you believe the 4th of July is this Sunday? I've been collecting Independence day crafting ideas for a few weeks. If you remember from this post, I've had my patriotic tree assembled in my sunroom since Memorial weekend (hee hee). If you are looking for vintage images, Country Living magazine has all kinds of lovely Americana decorations and images available on their website here.




Family Fun Magazine has 21 4th of July craft ideas found here. This magazine is still one of my favorite go-to resources for kid-friendly crafts.

Isn't this wreath festive?


You can find family fun wreath instructions here.

Their paper fans are cute too.
Be sure to grab some paint stir sticks the next time you're out.

Skip to my Lou posted a nifty 4th of July snack printable on their blog.

I love the graphics.
They'd be cute for salty snacks or snow cones!!

Can you tell I went through a teeny tiny bit of crafting/blogging withdrawal while on vacation? I'm just getting warmed up with ideas. Happy crafting!
