Independence Day is almost here. If you’re hosting a party, or if you just feel like decorating your home in red, white and blue, we have some fun DIY 4th of July decorations for you!
Outfit your party in red, white and blue with these DIY 4th of July decorations.
Festive DIY Utensil Holders
This one is as easy as it looks. Purchase a couple of clay pots, some paint and paintbrushes, and start decorating. After they dry, get some potting soil and red, white and blue flowers to create extra patriotic flair.
Red, White and Blue Chocolate Covered Strawberries
It’s probably safe to assume you’ve seen this on Pinterest. But it’s just too easy and fun not to include. When you’re at the grocery store, purchase some strawberries, white chocolate chips and blue sanding sugar or blue sprinkles. Whatever you prefer! At home, melt the white chocolate and start dipping. Not only are they fun, they’re delicious!
4th of July Mason Jar Candle Holders
This one would be fun to complete with a little one! What you’ll need is some white rice, blue and red food coloring, and flameless tea lights. Separate the rice into three even sections and pour into a Ziploc bag. Mix one with red food coloring and the other with blue. Let dry. Then pour in equal parts into the jars. Place the tea light on top.
Red, White and Blue Layered Cake
This one looks awesome. Thank you to Bird on a Cake for sharing this with us! Similar to the rice jars, you are going to make a white cake mix, but divide the batter into three bowls. You’ll leave one white, and dye one red and the other blue. You’ll need two eight inch cake pans with wax paper and greased sides. Then you’ll want to layer the batter in your pans. Once the three different colors are in the cake pan, drag a knife through the batter to create a marbling effect. But do not mix the colors together.
Bake and cool, then frost your cake. Put the cake in the freezer for 45 minutes. This will ensure the hardening of the frosting.
