Star-Spangled Ways to Be Creative for July 4th


Summer is officially here and with the longest day of the year already in the books, now we can look forward to celebrating America’s birthday on July 4th. No doubt you’ve got big plans to have everyone over to celebrate with a big backyard barbecue or pool party.


As you’re busily buying up hotdogs, buns, condiments, chips, burgers and other tasty July 4th food staples, don’t forget about using your creativity to make some spectacular star-spangled 4th of July glass art to show off to family and friends when they come over.


Delphi Glass has 2 fantastic free guides to help you bring out the freedom in your creativity for 4th of July. One of them is the Free Eagle Stepping Stone Project Guide. Ideal for those with intermediate stained glass skills, the hexagonal shape of the stone will be a welcome addition to any backyard, or can even serve duty in the front of your home leading up to your front door. Make one for a simple accent, or make a bunch of them to let your love for America truly shine.


The other free project guide Delphi Glass has for you is the Stars and Stripes Wind Chime Guide. Designed by Val Oswalt, it’s a brilliant way to add some American enthusiasm to any yard, plus the gentle and soothing sounds it makes as the wind blows will be sure to remind you of your American dreams.


You don’t have to limit yourself to these art glass projects though. For creative inspiration on this year’s Independence Day, consider what this holiday represents and means to you. It can be as simple as fireworks over the backdrop of a flag, or it can be more complex with eagles, flags, the statue of liberty, and other iconic symbols of American freedom. Let your love for America shine through in the glass art you create!
