10 DIY Projects to Inspire Red, White and Blue Crafting



Dreamcatchers are fun, easy and kind of addicting to make. I'm such a sucker for anything mixed media and no two dreamcatchers are ever alike. You can customize them in so many different ways and hand make almost any type of embellishment. Hand stenciled felt feathers might be one of my favorites.

That Jonathan Fong is a clever, clever man. I had the privilege of working with him a couple of times on Craft Lab and he always blew me away with his projects. These adorable patriotic sting lights he made for EHow are no exception. Watered down Tacky Glue would work perfect for these.
Nothing says America more like Abraham Lincoln. Well maybe except for George Washington. That is why I made spoon puppets out of each of them. Go ahead and make a cereal box puppet theatre while you are it. I used Tacky Glue to wrap the spoon handles in black yarn for their suits.
This adorable Fourth of July Bandana Bunting from Life in Wonderland had me at no-sew. All you need is rope/string, scissors, bandanas and Fabric Fusion glue. So many possibilities.
Last summer I made these adorable Red, White and Blue Shoes for my daughter. Dip-dying is about as easy at it gets when it comes to breathing new life into canvas shoes. All you need is a bleach pen to give them a patriotic touch.
Bottled beverages with personalized labels is always such a great detail to add to a party or gift. Over at The Idea Room Amy has a free template for making these patriotic pop bottles to keep you hydrated on the 4th of July in style.
Mr. Tanner Bell shared a patriotic tie-dye shirt and matching hat with I Love to Create readers. Make a pair of those dip-dyed shoes and you could be in the spirit literally head to toe.
Holidays with strict color palettes are easy to craft for. As long as you stick with red, white and blue your project (no matter what you actually make) will be perfect for 4th of July. Don't believe me? Read on and get inspired.
Don't forget what Duncan was originally known for, ceramics. This adorable patriotic cupcake tray is perfect inspiration for your next 'paint your own pottery' adventure.
Family Fun Magazine and Amanda Kingloff never disappoint when it comes to creative inspiration. I'm always drawn to paper straws, though I don't really like drinking from them. Firecracker inspired crafts like this one are much more my straw speed.
Last, but not least, I leave you with a DIY project I feel inspired to try and create myself. Kirstin from Craftiments made this adorable ribbon flag using fabric scraps and buttons. I see a no-sew version of this happening at my house very soon using Aleene's Fabric Fusion Glue

I am Edwin Castro from Chicago, IL, a Twitch Star and Highest Powerball mega-jackpot winner, so excited to share this testimony about Dr. Timo Spell Temple that changed my life for good, Dr. Timo has come to stay to do wonders with his spells. I overheard my co-worker telling his cousin how Dr. Timo Spell helped him to get back his partner within 24 hours . I was amazed about what he said. I searched for this man called Dr Timo online and guess what... He had so many good reviews and testimonies online about his work. I got in contact with him to win the lottery and he assured me that winning the lottery is not a problem but what do I intend doing with the winnings. I told him I was going to get a home to live send my kids to school, part of the money will be used for humanitarian purposes mostly to people in the street and helping the Orphanage/motherless Babies home, disable citizens and widows around my state also to build an opportunities for the young individuals in my local area to, when I become a winner. Dr Timo was so happy about my plans and promised me that he would prepare the spell and prayed for me for 3 days before he would tell me where to play the Lottery game. I did as he instructed me with a positive mindset. To my greatest shock, I was announced $2.04B Powerball Winner. I was shocked. I have no words to thank Dr. Timo but to share his good works to everyone that needs help. Email: him right now. He will give you the winning lottery ticket number and exact location address in your country and when to play the lottery game.
