 I love celebrating the 4th and thought some DIY crafts would be fun to make.. I always like making instead of buying because it looks better and makes me feel great making them.

*****Take tin cans (coffee can work well) and get some some contact paper that is festive or paint the can. I like the blue & white checker type print and the red & white. You can use oatmeal containers or the half gallon containers. Place napkins, utensils, or even cups in these fun containers and place on your outdoor table.

***** Take three different color (red, white & blue) plastic table cloths (the ones you get at the dollar store) and stack the three table clothes together, pin up on your outside door.. Cut strips going up until you have 4 inches from the top. You will have a cool looking door frame divider.. Kids would love this...

***** Take a watermelon and take the yummy fruit out and then use the watermelon shell as a planter for flowers for your 4th party.

******Take your empty toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls and color them to look like a firecrackers and put them on your party table.

What fun crafts do you like to do for the 4th?

I love these ideas! We will be home for the 4th but leaving the next day for the mountains if all works out! I love fixing up our patio table in festive colors for the 4th and I am adding some color to our front porchgood
