20 Star-spangled, red, white and blue, patriotic crafts

How do you like the new, star-spangled photo above? Thanks to our recent photo shoot, I’m having fun dressing up Crafts ‘n Coffee for the seasons and holidays. Summer starts early this year, and can you believe that we’re heading into the first holiday weekend of the summer? It’s been a few years since I’ve done a roundup of patriotic crafts, and I’ve added quite a few red, white and blue crafts since then. Today I have a new and updated roundup of 20 Patriotic DIYs, from wreaths and flags to centerpieces.

I’m scheming a new, patriotic craft for July 4th, and I hope to share it soon (if it all comes together as planned . . .) I’ll keep you posted!

Do you have fun plans for the weekend? Picnics, roadtrips, or just a little R&R at home? I’m looking forward to a class in macaron making with a friend – not your traditional Memorial Day activity, but yummy nonetheless.

Enjoy the holiday, and happy crafting.

P.S. What do you think of the shade of blue all around the page? I’ve changed the color about ten times today and I’m still not sure I’m happy with it. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Happy Memorial Day! Happy 4th of July! These are wonderful! A friend has her new apartment decorated in red, white, and blue. These would go beautifully with her theme.

    • Sharon says:

      Hi Angie, Be sure to share these ideas with your friend. Maybe it’s time to get together for a craft night, too. Wouldn’t that be fun? Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping in. Sharon

  2. I love the blue around the page!! It is very relaxing and allows the crafts to shine!!
    This is an awesome Round-up of Patriotic crafts! My favorite is the first bandana wreath.
    I am home alone all weekend because hubby and son are working at the races. Hubby is a tech official and son is on the safety crew. They have to be there each day at 7am and won’t be home till at least 8 or 9pm each night so I am going to spend my weekend creating!! No stopping to cook meals and cleaning will probably wait till Tuesday!
    Hope you have a fun weekend!!

    • Forgot to add that I can’t wait to see your Patriotic Creation!! I know it will be awesome!!

      • Sharon says:

        Well, it’s a pretty simple idea, Barb, and a variation of a project I’ve made before. It’s a fun one, however. I hope to share it soon! Happy crafting! Sharon

    • Sharon says:

      Thanks for the feedback, Barb. Much appreciated. Your weekend sounds perfect — your husband and son can pursue their passion, and you can have a mini craftcation! What’s on your crafty to-do list? Enjoy it all! Sharon

    Great red white and blue. Just picked my daughter up from Denver and heading back to Montana. Can’t wait to start crafting the rest of the weekend.

    • Sharon says:

      It sounds like mother-daughter craft time, Lisa. How long is the drive from home to Denver? Sounds like a long road trip. Happy crafting! Sharon

      • LisaM6 says:

        It was 13-15 hours with stops. We drove most of the way Wednesday to pick her up then Thursday we got to load the yukon up. Drove until 9pm Thursday and finished the drive today. Missed most of the holiday traffic. So Glad to be home.

      • Sharon says:

        Oh my, those are long days! I’m glad you made it there and back safely, and you now have a long weekend to rest up. I hope you enjoy some R&R (and a little crafting). Sharon

    First of all that Uncle Sam is too funny! I had to pin him on Pinterest… And the shade of blue around the page is very nice. 🙂
    No fancy plans for me, just spending time at home with my family. I might make a paper flower bouquet for my niece for her ballet recital coming up. Fresh flowers die but a paper bouquet can last as long as she wants 😉
    Enjoy your class and your weekend!

    • Sharon says:

      Thanks for the pin, and for the feedback on the blue. Do you follow Lia Griffith? She makes the most gorgeous paper flowers. If you’ve not peeked at her blog, go take a look! I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing and crafty weekend, too. Sharon
