July 4 is nearly upon us, and many people are still struggling to pull together their last minute party plans. Planning a get-together for a group of people is often stressful because you want your home, the food, and the atmosphere to be perfect for your guest. However, decorations for special holidays like the Fourth of July can be quite costly, so it may be necessary to turn to a few do-it-yourself projects to rescue you. These are three easy paper crafts you can quickly put together to add a touch of fun to your Fourth of July celebrations.

Fourth of July paper sparklers

Most people have fund memories of waving a brightly colors sparkler through the night sky to draw something or to write their name, so paper sparklers would make great decor items. A website called Momtastic.com has taken the time to share step-by-steps instructions as to how you can make your own Fourth of July paper sparklers. These sparklers can be grouped together in a decorative container, handed out as party favors, or even made smaller and used as place cardholders at the dinner table.

Hanging firecracker

Festive decor isn't only meant for table tops and chair backs especially on the Fourth of July, which usually ends with a fireworks display high in the sky. So, why not make some hanging firecrackers to decorate with? A website called Sewingcraftingsarah.blogspot.com has shared a great tutorial on how you can make your own hanging firecracker. It starts with an empty can of oats, some colorful paper, and a little bit of ribbon, and ends with a great decoration for your party.

Paper rockets

Adding some cute paper rockets to your Fourth of July party would really liven things up. Better Homes and Garden featured an adorable paper rocket centerpiece on their website last year. The “rockets” were constructed from red, white, and blue themed cardstock, attached to wooden skewers, and finished off with a decorative ribbon. Sounds easy right? Add them to a small bucket or mason jar of sand, and you have an adorable centerpiece.

All of these projects use items most craft lovers already have in their craft rooms, or things that can be easily purchased at your local big-box store. Give them a try to add a touch of fun to your July 4 party.
