Star-Spangled Project Ideas


In my family, the Fourth of July is right up there with Christmas. Family comes in from all over, matching shirts are distributed, lawn chairs are hosed down in preparation for the local parade, and sparklers are lit even before the sun goes down.

When "us kids" were younger (we're now all in our 20s), there was always a Fourth of July craft planned to keep us busy. Now that we're older, we've moved beyond the Uncle Sam toilet paper holder puppets, but still look forward to our time together.

Here are a few grown-up craft projects for Independence Day to share with your family. If nothing else, I hope these images inspire you to enjoy and appreciate this Fourth of July- happy crafting!
