Can you believe the the 4th of July is just right around the corner? Where on earth did the month of June go? Wow! When my parents told me time would fly as I got older, I really didn’t want to believe it. But they were right. Summers come and go in the blink of an eye these days, which is why we should always make the most out of it! That my friends includes celebrating the 4th of July in style this year with some really cute and fun ideas for a party or gathering. We have put together a few of our favorite Independance Day crafts and recipes that are circulating Pinterst right now to help inspire!
How fun are those patriotic ice-cream sandwiches? Creamy cheesecake ice cream is sandwiched between crisp red velvet shortbread cookies, all in the shape of a star. Just the ticket for staying cool and celebrating the fourth of July! Visit A Farmgirl’s Dabbles for the recipe!
Yet another awesome and oh so festive idea for the Mason jar here. Bandannas are pulling napkin duty in bright blue and red along with silverware and a jar. This is a great idea for a large party, guests can even use the jar for their beverage as well! Visit A Soft Place to Land for more ideas!
And what would the 4th of July be without a Martha Stewart idea as well? These Rocket Favor packs are too cute and a really easy DIY that young guests are sure to love! Pick your favorite patterned cardstock and candies and craft up a dozen or two for the kiddies.
In keeping with the bandanna theme above you could also use them to create a fun banner decoration or even a flag place mat! These cute DIYs from Parents are easy and super patriotic too.
