Wooden handle Fireworks
This first DIY might be my favorite out of the 10. I had so much fun painting each wooden handle a different look and the printable works perfectly with it. I added rope and twine to the top of the handles and now they look like fireworks.
Red White & Blue Wooden Bead Garland
This 2nd DIY was adorable and extremely easy to make. Adding a star to each end of the long twine plus red, wooden, and blue beads make it perfect for any decor spot in your home. I personally wrapped it around my white lamp.
Uncle Sam Nesting Boxes
Okay, Uncle Sam might be my 2nd favorite. HAHA there is something about his grumpy face that gets me each time I look at him. The best part about this DIY is that they each of the upper boxes store nicely inside of the biggest box. The Step-By-Step video, I linked above, shows how they all stack inside of each other. Oh, and the little star are buttons I found at Joann’s. Aren’t they so CUTE?
Red White & Blue Stacking Star Boxes
This DIY happens to be really popular this season. I’ve seem many other crafters making this, but for mine I changed the top square by facing the opening up so I could add some greenery to it. I personally love greenery all throughout our home. This is also the first time I tried out this new gold metallic paint from Folk Art and I’m so impressed. I’ve tried other gold paints before, but this is, hands down, my new favorite one. I plan on using this a lot more on other DIY crafts.
American Flag Mason Jars
I will always be a sucker for a mason jar craft and this particular one is super easy to recreate with 3 jars, paint and 1 piece of twine. Each jar has its own look and I added back on the gold lid rings to complete the look. I am personally using these for utensils and I’m so happy with how they turned out.
Upcycled Star Food Cans
These food cans are a fast upcycle which is great for our planet. A little bit of paint, 3 stars, and some twine is all you will need. At the last moment I decided to flip my white can up and added a little greenery. Again… I love greenery. Wouldn’t these be so cute on a bathroom shelf or at an entry way.
Gift Box Drum & Drumsticks
While doing some research for this post and video I came across a photo of an old drum. I knew right away that I had the perfect Dollar Tree gift box for it. Using 2 round boxes, paint, 1 piece of striped scrapbook paper, push pins, twine, ribbon, skewer sticks, 2 wooden balls, a large star and a bead garland… I was able to make my own mini drum. I think the drumsticks really finishes it off nicely and I now want to make a bigger version of this.
American Flag Hanging Plaque
This DIY cost pennies to make, but the impact is darling while hanging it up on a hook or door knob. I love little details like this around my home and it just shows that you don’t have to have a lot to get the look.
Red White & Blue Liberty Bell
This liberty bell was a Christmas bell I’ve been waiting to use for a while. I noticed back around Christmas time that it would be perfect for a Red White & Blue look. The popsicle stick wood beam and the wooden finial on top (from Hobby Lobby) really give it an elevated look. Then I finished it off with a twine bow and a 2 layered button embellishment.
Stars & Stripes Bucket Planter
Last but certainly not least is this thrift flip. With blue spray paint I gave this old metal bucket a new look. I added some ribbons with stars and stripes around it and tied a bow. Lastly, I put a white star on the bow and put a plant inside it. I’m so happy with how charming this looks at our front porch. A perfect way to welcome guests this coming summer.
