July 4th weekend means friends, families, loved ones, all getting together to celebrate America’s independence from the British (dare I say we forced the Brexit in 1776?).
All jokes aside, Independence Day weekend is about celebrating our freedom and there aren’t many better at celebrating it than the Hometalk team. As the largest DIY community, boasting roughly 100,000 projects with over three million members and hundreds of thousands of contributors, Hometalk has four incredibly easy and cool projects for you to add a little pizzazz to your Fourth of July party.
You’re going to need painter’s tape, paintbrushes, multi-surface acrylic pants, and of course, wine glasses for this little project.
Think of how awesome you’re going to look sipping wine from a super-decked out patriotic glass. Cool, isn’t it?
Add a bit of class to your deck, or kitchen table, or somewhere on the patio (just make sure it’s not within reach of children!) with these beautiful stars and stripes lanterns. All you need are painter’s tape, Dollar Store glasses, frosted glass spray paint, star stickers, and if you’re feeling especially crafty, acrylic paint.
Follow the steps outlined here and you’ll end up with this!
Perfect for inside or outside, this super patriotic garland is really simple to make — it’s made from Christmas lights intertwined with mesh, tablecloth, and some fake flowers. Check out the instructions to make your own!
You can have a mini campfire and have your s’mores too. Yeah, that’s right. This mini “campfire” can be lit indoors (if you like to live on the edge) or outdoors — just make sure to watch the little ones if you’re cooking up s’mores with kids! You can grab all of the necessary supplies at your local dollar store, so this is a cheap and fun project for the family.
