This is a fun kids project - a Statue of Liberty tiara made from an upside visor and drinking straws. Use white craft glue to secure the straws, and blue tape to hold in place until it sets. Add glitter and an embellishment and you're good to go!
Star Spangled Pool Float: Take Styrofaom stars, paint, use white craft glue to hold together, and add a cup holder on top - instant drink caddy for your pool!
Super Star Soaps: Use red, white and blue coloring and star molds!
Patriotic Fabric Collage: This is a fabric collage to hang on your door or in your house. I added little sprays of yellow and green. It's America, we're free to express ourselves, right?
Americana Folk Art Shrine: This is a shrine I made from an old crate. I used lots of cool memorabilia!
This is a book with paper bags for pages that are filled with snacks for the kids (or kids at heart).
Soda Can Star Lights: Cut up soda cans, use a nail file to sand the edges, drill a hole and use on a string of lights.
Patriotic Paper Swag: Take scrapbook paper, cut circles, fold in half and hang over ribbon. You can also add in doilies too!
