Craft Roundup: Festive Projects for the Fourth of July

From firecrackers to albums, peek at these four nifty blog tutorials for some red, white and blue-themed crafts kids will love to make for Independence Day

Craft Roundup: Festive Projects for the Fourth of July

Happy (almost) Fourth of July! The summer's fireworks-endorsed holiday is just two days away. How will your family be celebrating? If you're like many folks in southeast Michigan, the Fourth of July can be spent with family and friends enjoying sunshine and good times during the day and sparklers and fireworks at night. This week's Make It roundup offers some projects to celebrate the day and make the most of the setting around you.

 

Baby's Breath Friendship Bracelet

Sometimes all the crafting supplies you'll need for a project can be found outdoors! Try this tutorial from A Fabulous Fete for a nature-themed accessory.

 

Fourth of July Sparkler Holders

Keep those small hands safe with a patriotic sparkler holder – just like this one from Ardor Blog.

 

DIY Travel Album

Capture some great photos from the Fourth of July party? Turn them into a one-of-a-kind album with this tutorial from Polka Dot Chair.

 

Recycled Firecrackers

Just like the friendship bracelet, you don't have to look too far for the supplies needed in this green project from Crafting a Green World. Have your children create a batch of these firecrackers for a festive table setting.
