|While 4th of July may be celebrated a little differently this year, you can still have a festive time! Plus, throwing the perfect party is even more fun when you’ve all gotten involved in planning and crafting it (literally). And so, we present: A DIY 4th of July.|
Using red, white and blue balloons, create a makeshift flag by taping them to the wall.
Make a game station by putting mason jars on an outdoor table and filling them with snaps, sparkles and bubbles (extra points for labelling them “snap”, “crackle” and “pop”)
Paint a top hat with the American flag to make an Uncle Sam hat. It also doubles as a great photo prop!
Got a cork board? Paint it black, then take coloured tags and pin them make firework shapes
Buy star stickers at your local dollar store and place them on candle holders
Buy flag-themed washi tape and place them on utensils for your BBQ table setting (pair them with flag-themed napkins, too!)
Use two slabs of wood to make a festive corn hole game. Just drill a circle and paint a Spangled Banner on it!
Have the kids draw some festive motifs on rectangular cutouts and pin them to a rope to make a banner
Enjoy the fun and we hope making these decorations will be a wonderful precursor to the festivities! And, if the decorations turn out well, remember to organize them in a labelled storage box for next year 😉 .
Garden and shed, two things that go hand-in-hand. To keep a neat and tidy garden, your shed should set the example—with organized tools and minimal clutter.
