What Are Some Free And Easy 4th of July Craft Ideas?

First, if you are like myself, you may have a supply of scrap fabrics. I can’t seem to throw away left over fabrics so I usually have a good supply.

Here are a few things you can do with your scrap fabric.

Scrap Red and Blue Ticking Fabric for 4th of July Decorating

You can create fun and inexpensive 4th of July Decor using red and blue ticking stripe fabric.

To create this fun Chandelier, rip strips of ticking fabric and tie them to a light fixture. I also made a few drop cloth stars and some crystals to make it more festive.

This is so cheap and easy to make and looks great hanging from this DIY Solar Chandelier over a rustic patriotic dinner table.

In addition, the center piece is a simple thrifted basket filled with greenery and a few American Flags.

The 4th of July Decor for this table is complete with these DIY Patriotic Napkins which are also made from scarp ticking fabric.

This Made Easy Patriotic Tablescape was my first table setting I added to the DIY Greenhouse.
