When it comes to 4th of July, some Americans take the holiday more seriously and go all out than others. For instance, my family hardly does anything special on the 4th other than watch fireworks outside at night. Yet, there are communities that stage 4th of July parades as well as have 4th of July picnics. Then there are residents that have 4th of July picnics or barbecues as well. Yet, on 4th of July, there are plenty of Americans who decorate their homes in a patriotic flair like this one shown above. Families like mine don’t do this. But plenty do since 4th of July decorations are now on sale at stores during this time, especially American flags. Yet, for some people, 4th of July decorations like these don’t seem unique enough for there taste. So these people make their own in order to celebrate the holiday. And yes, you can find plenty of 4th of July crafts on Pinterest and Etsy, too. Many of these DIY decorations are clad in red, white, and blue as well as may contain an American flag. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you to the star spangled world of unforgettable 4th of July craft projects.

 

  1. An American flag quilting square is well suited for any wall.

5. A sheet with corrugated aluminum always makes a great American flag hanging.

Just note that making anything with an American flag pattern takes a lot of time and precision. Because the flag itself has a lot of small details to account for like stars for instance.

Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Second Edition)

a390607386e66441f1bca8eaa44b20d9

With Father’s Day being over, I can now proceed to 4th of July. For me as a blogger, the 4th of July is usually an odd one out since it takes place in the summer while other major holidays fall around during the fall, winter, and early spring. As far as Americans are concerned, the 4th of July is denotes the day in 1776 when the United States (then 13 colonies) officially severed ties with Great Britain during the American Revolution. However, the Brits might beg to differ on this account since the US was still a British possession as far as they’re concerned. Anyway, last year I did a treat post on 4th of July along with a series of Declaration of Independence signers and it was a measurable success. So I decided to do another one for the occasion mostly because the treat posts tend to be so popular for other holidays, too. Thus, expect a lot of treats to be in the red, white, and blue because they are the colors of the American flag. I’ll also have other ones coming up which are related to crafts and so forth. So we hold ourselves to be self-evident that all men are created equal and I want you to enjoy these patriotic 4th of July treats for your star spangled reading pleasure.

 

  1. There’s no better way for a cake lover to show patriotic pride than with a mini cupcake American flag.
Notice how the sprinkles stand in for stars. Wonder how long it took to decorate this.
