4th of July Party Decor

I love decorating for the 4th of July especially if I’m having a party. Who am I kidding, I don’t have to have a party to make cute decorations, especially using the colors red, white, and blue. You only need a few inexpensive supplies for this patriotic 4th of July party decor.

Supplies needed:
patterned scrapbook paper (red, white, blue)
washi tape
wood utensils
tiny clothespins
metal cupcake holder
cupcakes papers

Easy to make Red, White and Blue party decor is perfect for Summer holidays
























I started with this cupcake holder I bought at DI (thrift store) for .50 cents and some red, white and blue scrapbook paper.

To make the cones I opened up a sno-cone cup to use as a template. Then traced in on the back of the papers.

And cut them out.

I used double sided tape on the inside of the cone shape, formed it into a cone and secured it with the tape.

The cones work perfectly in the upper part of the holder but were too long for the lower part so I used cupcake liners. These would be so fun for candy, caramel corn, fruit, nuts, whatever you can think of. It makes a great centerpiece and display for a party.

Next, I used washi tape to snazz up some wooden utensils. I’m a little scared to share with you where I get my wooden utensils because I don’t want you to take them all, but since I love you all I will. Just leave some for me because I’m getting low. If you have a Boy Scout store near you, that’s where I get them. They’re very inexpensive compared to the smaller ones you can purchase from a craft or party supply store.

I wrapped the washi tape around the handles of the utensils and then tied the sets together with red bakers twine.

The next thing I made was a little banner with the remaining paper and bakers twine. I used little red clothespins to attach the paper to the twine.

Once I made these party supplies I decided I needed more, so be looking for more party decor ideas coming your way.

Do you want to host a party just so you can make cute decorations? I can’t be the only one.
