Some Favorites from the Full List Below

Recycled Items Wreath

Make this low-cost wreath by using old t-shirts or clothing, a round disk or cardboard and paper white stars. This is all stuff you have around the house and you should be able to create this with less than $10.00. Depending what you use for the wreath, you can determine your material sizes and go from there on making your wreath.

Paper Lanterns

Paper lanterns so easy that kids can make them with their parents. You can then decorate them with stars and other patriotic items. Hang these on a string or ribbon and if you want, put an LED candle or light in them to really light them up for the night.

Homemade Sidewalk Chalk

Make your own sidewalk chalk and save big this summer by not having to buy store bought expensive chalk. All you need is some plaster of paris, dyes and a mold. We used a star mold to make it more patriotic for the 4th of July. This will keep the kids entertained at your next picnic!

Rosette Banner

Make this rosette banner to hang at your next 4th of July party to decorate on a budget. People will love this crafty rosette banner but they don’t have to know how little it costs to make something that looks so perfect. Make the banner with a bunch of paper and then put your own letters on it.

Tabletop Stars

Stars are a great simple way to decorate for the 4th of July. These stars are simple to make although they are not the cheapest craft to make until you purchase wooden dowels, stars, spools, and the yarn. You can make a few for under $25.00 though so if you only need a few, they are a cool table decoration.
