Sharing From the She Shed: Easy Fourth of July Decorations
Saturdays are for sharing from the she shed. Today I have a few easy fourth of July decorations to share and lots of inspo from my friends.
The 4th of July is just a few days away, and I know many of you are busy getting ready. If you’re looking for some easy fourth of July decorations that will add some festive flair to your home, look no further! I’ve gathered some simple and stylish ideas, and best of all, they won’t break the bank. So gather your supplies and get creative!
From The She Shed
The fourth of July is truly one of my favorite holidays. I love how relaxed it is, typically a day at the pool or the beach. Lots of great food is served and my favorite fireworks.
In case you missed my live on Instagram this week, I shared some easy fourth of July decorations.
I created a snack/craft bar for the grandkids.
They can eat and craft all day long.
We will be making firecrackers that I make out of a paper towel or TP tubes, so easy!
Cover the exterior with cute red, white, and blue paper, and cut a circle ( 3-4″ in diameter ) out of a solid paper to create the top. Then, cut a slit into the middle and glue it around a flag or these sparkly stars and fireworks I bought at the Dollar Tree.
My second DIY was this cute Happy Fourth of July sign.
I purchased the happy sign at the Dollar Tree, which was galvanized silver. I unscrewed it from the base and spray-painted it red. Screw it back onto the wood base after it has dried.
I picked up a #4 on Amazon and a bag of wooden letters. I sprayed the number four red and the letter for July blue and then hot glued the letters onto the number. So easy and very quick.
My third easy fourth of July decoration
I had so much fun with this one; you will see why!
I purchased plain wooden stars at Hobby Lobby and a pack of paper napkins from Dollar Tree.
I then used Mod Podge and laid the colored layer of the napkin over the stars, next painting a coat of Mod Podge over the stars.
Let this dry, then trim to 1/2 inch of paper around the stars.
Using a lighter, burn the edge of the paper around the stars. It creates an excellent rim, and the process is so fun.
Watch it here on IG, and for the total LIVE with a demo of all three crafts, you can watch that here.
There are so many excellent blog posts every week, and I am sharing some of my favorites with you today.
