Ready to craft some DIY 4th of July decoration?
What you’ll need:
- Permanent marker
- Felting tool
- Felting brush mat
- Sewing needle
- Printable template
- White plastic poster board
- Permanent adhesive dots
- E60000 adhesive
- Red and blue spray paint
- ¼ dowel rods
- Use our free template to trace and cut rocket shapes out of white poster board; cut one top and one base shape for each rocket you want to make.
- To assemble the rockets, roll the rectangular base shape into a tube and the semicircle into a cone; secure the shapes with adhesive dots. Run a bead of E6000 adhesive around the top rim of the tube and place the cone directly onto the end. Let the glue dry completely.
- When the rockets are assembled and the glue is dry, decorate them with spray paint. Give the rockets a solid coat of red or blue paint, or try an ombre look. To ombre the rockets, hold the spray can at the bottom of the rocket, and angle it perpendicularly to create a faded look at the top of the tube.
- Play around with different angles and distances to get the perfect effect. When the paint is dry, use E6000 glue to attach a dowel rod to the inside of each rocket tube. Let the glue dry, then use the dowels to add the rockets to a planter or flower arrangement.
Having some barbecue? Add this DIY 4th of July BBQ Station by Somewhat Simple
What you’ll need:
- Planters/ plant pots
- Spray primer
- Red, white, and blue paint
- Sponge brush
- Painter’s tape, optional
- Star stickers, optional
- Spray a light coat of primer all over your pot/planter. Once dry, paint your pot white. If you are using dollar store paint, you will need multiple coats as it is much thinner (read: cheaper!) than other craft paints.
- Paint red stripes on the right side of the front of the pot.
- Attach star stickers on the left side of the pot before painting it blue. Then paint the background blue and peel off the stickers to reveal the white underneath. If the paint peels or chips, you can touch it up as needed.
- Place plastic grocery bags on the bottom of the metal tin, then fill it with ice. (The plastic bags will keep the tin from any potential puddles as the ice starts to melt.) Add your favorite condiments for your hamburgers and hotdogs, and you’re good to go!
- You can paint plastic or terra cotta pots red, white, and blue to hold your cutlery and paper goods.
- Lastly, make a fabric banner to hang as a backdrop to your condiment station. Just rip red, white, and blue fabric into strips, tie them to a string, and you’re good to go!
What you’ll need:
- White cotton napkins, washed and dried
- Red fabric dye
- Blue fabric dye
- Rubber bands
- Squeeze bottles
- Plastic drop cloth
- Rubber gloves
- Start by washing and drying white cotton napkins. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets. This step is essential to ensure that the dye is absorbed into fabric properly.
- Prepare a work area by covering it with a plastic drop cloth to protect your surface from staining.
- Prepare both red and blue fabric dye according to packaging in small squeeze bottles.
- Starting at the center of the napkin, pinch and twist small pieces of the napkin and wrap with a rubber band. Repeat as many times as you would like across the napkin. Each twist will create one "firework."
- Wearing gloves, squeeze a small amount of red dye onto the center of each twist.
- Squeeze out a ring of blue die around the base of each red twist. This does not have to be perfect! Don't worry if it's abstract...the wilder the better.
- Allow die to dry completely before removing rubber bands. Wait 6-7 hours before machine washing in cold water or according to fabric dye directions.
Happy 4th of July!
