Fourth of July Craft Ideas
Do you ever think about making crafts for the Fourth of July? When my niece and nephew were little it was exciting coming up with craft ideas for the Fourth of July, such as making flag magnets. One of the best times we spent together was when we all decided to draw our own interpretations of a Hawaiian sunset, so I always love to do arts and crafts with my niece or nephew. When I cannot spend time with my niece and nephew I always send them a handmade holiday card, which is something they treasure and enjoy. Here are some projects we thought were a fun way to celebrate the red, white, and blue spirit of America's independence day. You know what else is good about making your own crafts on the Fourth of July? You can create American themed decorations that are not made in China, which is especially patriotic when you are decorating specifically for the Fourth of July!
The American flag magnet pictured below was cross stitched on plastic canvas mesh, which is a craft young people can do since the squares on the mesh are so large. Most crafting stores like Jo-Ann Fabrics or Michaels' carry all the supplies needed for making cross stitched magnets out of plastic canvas mesh.
American flag magnets made with cross stitching on plastic canvas mesh create fun decorations for the Fourth of July, and you can use these year around.
Are you not from the United States? Try making a cross stitching a flag magnet based on the flag from your country, or you can even make a simple card that captures the spirit of your country's flag. Happy patriotic crafting!
