4th of July Home Decor

Today I am sharing a few more Patriotic crafts that I have recently done. Oriental Trading sent me a few more things and I had to get them up on the wall as soon as possible. Look at these super cool fans!!

The fans are from Oriental Trading, and they are perfect right out of the package. However; I can’t seem to leave perfect things alone and I alter them a bit. Here is what they look like before.

I had to hang them from the string that comes with the package. But I wanted a different look. So I cut that part off. I turned it around used a glue gun to glue a piece of chipboard in the back and then I put a loop to be able to hang them closer to the wall. Now they seem like they are floating. I think it looks better.  Thoughts??

Had I not been in the crafty mood I would have hung them from the ceiling with a stapler 😉

Another super quick thing that I did was take a dollar store balloon weight and put it in the middle of a glass container. Then I filled it with Jelly Beans from Oriental Trading. I layered the colors 🙂 “Elijah said that it looked AMAZING!! My kids are the best.


Lastly, the kids and I made flags with the Jelly Beans. There are 2lbs of Jelly Beans in each bag and we got three bags; so we have lots of Jelly Beans to do fun projects with.  The kids made theirs with frosting as glue and I used a glue gun. I am going to let you guess who did what. LOL!!!

There is still plenty of time to get some fun stuff in time for 4th of July.  Here is a small list of what I used. Just click on the picture to go to the site. Everything is so reasonably priced.
