4th of July Craft Inspirations - Americana Projects

It's time to get in the "red, white and blue" spirit! We have some cute projects perfect for your 4th of July party. Come talk to our knowledgeable associates and let them help you start your next project. That's what we're here for - making your crafting time a joyful and relaxing experience!

Here are a few very simple projects: 

Decorate a Mason Jar with burlap, mesh and a flower. It makes a great vase for real flowers, or silk long-lasting flower arrangement.

We used scrapbook paper and ribbon to decorate a 64 oz jar. An easy project!

This was done with (4) 12" x 12" scrapbook paper that was scored and folded into fan like shape. We then attached them together with double-sided tape, or you could also use glue and hold it with clothespins while it dries. We added a paper doily and die cut a circle and stars to add to the front of the project. A great decoration for the home or office party. Check out Misty's FREE tutorial at Juneberry Lane: 

The picture is a little bit blurred (sorry about that) but this still gives you a good idea of how to create a great patriotic wreath with tulle pieces tied to a foam wreath. Add craft lights to add a touch of bling to this easy-to-make project!

Die-cut pinwheels (cut using our Die-Cut Machine) are simply attached to skewers creating fun pinwheels! If you buy scrapbook paper here in the store you are able to use our die-cut machines and hundreds of die for free. Learn more:

You will need patriotic red, white and blue paper to do some of your 4th of July crafts. We have a great selection! This first collection is called Stars and Stripes by Doodlebug Design.

Here's another Americana paper collection by Pebbles Inc.

Well, I guess this picture gives you a pretty good idea of what our Patriotic - Americana - 4th of July paper and embellishment section offers! We have a great selection!
