Hello all, are you excited for the upcoming Fourth of July? It’s one of my favorite holidays, I love the food and patriotic traditions! Some years we host a party since we have a fantastic view of the local fireworks show from our front yard. In other years we’ll visit someone else’s home. This year my parents are hosting and we’ll spend the day poolside and then do the traditional fireworks observation at night.
I got crafty this year playing off Old Glory’s red and white stripes and white stars on a blue background to create a fun place setting. I partnered with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Brand to create a striped painted placemat and accompanying star spangled napkin, embellished with a fireworks inspired detail on top.
To recreate you’ll need red placemats, blue napkins, white craft tape, ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape; a roller, artist’s paintbrush, tray for paint, star punch from a craft store, and red pipe cleaners (not shown).
Here’s the simple step by step:
First grab yourself some red placemats (I found these at Kohls) but you can also find similar versions at discount retail stores. Mark of the placement of your future stripes and use the tape to create the stripes lengthwise.
Two to three coats of white craft paint gives you a nice stripe, pull back the tape when the paint is dry.
I created a stencil with the tape and a star punch, make sure you turn the tape upside down and carefully pull tape through the punch to create an adhesive stencil that will stick to your napkin. Add the stars with white paint and a small artist’s brush.
Twist four red pipe cleaners make a fireworks inspired napkin holder.
Sprinkle stars made from the hole punch on top of the placemat for a unique Fourth of July place setting.
Oh, and speaking of the Fourth of July, I wrote about even more fun & festive ways to celebrate over at BH&G!

Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up on the 4th to a delicious and healthy 4th of July Breakfast like this? I saw this idea last year on Back to Her Roots and knew my family would just love this fun breakfast toast.
And talk about easy! All you need to make this patriotic toast are blueberries, jam, bananas and your favorite toast. PS… this would also be PERFECT for Memorial Day or Labor Day.
4TH OF JULY BREAKFAST
2 sliceds of toast
2 TB strawberry or raspberry jam
1 large banana
1/3 cup fresh blueberries
1. Spread 1 TB of jam on each piece of toast. Arrange blueberries and banana slices on toast to from a flag. Enjoy!
These banners also look great hung on your own fences, strung from the outdoor lights and displayed above your buffet table or wherever you happen to be serving the meat. Throw a few mini flags in there and refer to it as done!

4th of July Patriotic Pinwheels for Cricut & Silhouette – Savvy Nana
Summertime is in full swing here in Northern California! And summer always means outdoor parties, barbecues, swimming, and of course, the 4th of July!
If you’re throwing a 4th of July party, why not cut out these cute decorative pinwheels in red, white, and blue? The red and white pinwheels have stripes, and the pinwheel has stars. Grouped together they make a patriotic centerpiece, or line your driveway with them to welcome your guests.
Patriotic Pinwheels Supplies + Tools
Red, white, and blue paper (I like the Stardream Metallic series from Paper-Papers.com)
They are designed to be cut on a Cricut Explore or Silhouette Cameo. If you’re new to the world of cutting machines, start here: What is the Cricut Explore Machine and What Does it Do?
Cut out each pinwheel — red, blue, white. Unassembled, they look like this:
Carefully bring the holes along the outside edge (one on each side) toward the center hole. Thread a brad through all five holes and open the clasp so the whole pinwheel holds together. Glue the wooden dowel on the back to complete each pinwheel. These are just decorative (they don’t spin), though you could use a tutorial like this to create a version that will spin.
