Red white and blue DIY crafts heidi sonboul

There is just something so magical about the color combo of Red, White, & Blue together. I’m sure for me it has to do with my many wonderful memories of 4th of July celebrations. I’m a proud American, but beyond that, I just love how well they all complement each other. So today I have 8 fun DIY crafts to share with you that use that exact color scheme.

Free Printable & Step By Step Video

If you would like to see how I made each of these, you can watch THIS VIDEO on my Heidi Sonboul DIY Channel that goes with these crafts. It shows all the steps I took to make them. Also. Make sure to grab this FREE Printable that I used for a few of these crafts as well.


American Flag Planter

This first craft was SO MUCH FUN TO MAKE. I can’t even stress it enough. Using fabric I had on hand, and some twigs from my yard, I made these 5 darling rustic American Flags. Yes, they are not accurate to the actual flag, but they are meant to be playful. So with hot glue and a few layers here and there I was able to create this look. I placed them in a planter and I just love the look.

Red White & Blue Book Craft

This book craft was so ridiculously easy to make and all I did was collect red, white, and blue books from the Dollar Tree & my local Thrift store. I placed them in color order, glued the covers to each other and added twine with a bow.

Plush Fabric Stars

These plush fabric stars use my Free Printable (Linked Above). Once I cut out the shapes from fabric, I added hot glue around the edges and stuffed them with batting. So easy right?! To give it a more rustic farmhouse look I added brown paint distressing, and a twine bow to the white star.

Pleated Award Ribbon

I’m not sure why, but I LOVE award ribbons. I think it’s because I’ve always loved horses and these are the types of ribbons I’ve seen awarded at Show Jumping events. I love the texture of the pleating and LOVE that they come in so many sizes and details. So I decided to share how to make one. I personally found it so fun making these craft and think it looks so smart next to the book decor or a plant.

American Flag Ribbon Wreath

This ruffle ribbon wreath is a bit more advanced but still so easy to do. I got a great deal during a sale at JoAnn’s on ribbons which allowed me to make this wreath. I simple pleated the ribbon as I went around and around. To see how I blended in the star ribbon, make sure to watch the video.
