It's hard to believe we're already in the middle of summer and the season's biggest national holiday is coming up: Fourth of July! It's a great reason to throw a party to celebrate America's independence!
If you're hosting a Fourth of July party this year, impress your guests by making it festive! Check out the DIY projects below to help you get started.
#1. Recycled Bottle Centerpiece
Transform empty glass bottles into patriotic centerpieces with a little bit of washi tape, paint, twine and stickers!
#2. Red, White, and Blue Toothpicks
Even something simple as a festive toothpick will make your appetizers and desserts look more themed! Just add some tinsel pompoms and patterned flags to some plain toothpicks and you’re good to go.
#3. Ombre Wreath
Wreaths aren’t strictly for end of the year holidays, they’re appropriate all year round. You can recreate this festive wreath by putting together an assortment of fabric scraps.
#4. July 4th Layered Drinks
Keep it PG with these mocktails that are just as tasty. Just layer blue Gatorade on top of Sobe pina colada on top of cranberry juice and voila! Be sure to let your guests do all the stirring.
#5. Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches
Who doesn’t love a delicious ice cream sandwich on a hot day. Make them festive by rolling them around in red, white and blue sprinkles and tada!
