Super Easy and Fun Fourth of July Ideas!

July 01, 2016

Cute and simple 4th of July crafts, decor and entertaining ideas.

I've gathered a few quick and easy patriotic projects -- these Fourth of July DIY touches will look great inside and out. Most of these are great projects to work on with the kids as well!

If you're hosting over the July 4th holiday, these projects can be knocked out pretty quick. And the easy food ideas are great for entertaining. 

You know I love a printable and this free download is an easy way to add some red white and blue without spending any money:

You seriously can't go wrong with these -- such an easy way to add seasonal touches without spending much money. 

These pretzels are super festive and I'll be making them for sure:

I LOVE this idea to paint the lawn with stars! Not sure my husband would love it as much as me. He loves his lawn!:

You can find the red marking paint here, along with the blue option and white as well

It would be fun to make lawn games for the kids with these --  try "star Twister" and put them in the Twister design on the lawn. Or place them in lines for a throwing game with corn hole bags. Fun!

Here's another simple printable that could stay up all year round:
