Craft your own 4th July party with pens and paper

  1. Read time: 2 minutes
  2. Written by: Crafters Companion
We know you’re always looking to add a personal touch to your hosting without taking too much time away from all the other planning. So for this year’s 4th July, we’ve got a few simple makes to add small moments of joy to your party table. Some of them will need as little as pens and paper!

And although we’ve used red, white, and blue for our 4th July party at Crafter’s Companion HQ, you can use the exact same colour palette to cheer the USA and Great Britain through this summer’s sports extravaganzas - the Euros, Wimbledon, and the Olympics - as well!

Stars and stripes straws

Here’s a simple but effective way to jazz up your drinks. Simply cut a star out of your choice of coloured card along with two slits in the centre. Then slide onto a straw to make a fun topper.  

Here’s what you’ll need:

1. Blue card
2. Red card
3. Silver card
4. Straws
5. Scissors

    Dessert spoons

    This one’s super simple and great for the kids to help with. Just take a few colourful pens and get creative on your wooden spoons. Not only will you save yourself some post-party washing up, but it’s a thoughtful touch to your strawberries and cream.

    Here’s what you’ll need:


    Red, white and blue bunting

    We originally posted this idea for the King’s Coronation, but the colours make it perfect for 4th July or other summer parties!

    Treat bags

      This one’s super simple for any party, not just 4th July, and great for anyone on a budget. Choose your colour palette and start playing with different patterns, pictures and sentiments. Then drop in your favourite sweets and treats for your guests to take home as party bags.

      Here’s what you’ll need:

      1. White or kraft gift bags
      And if you want to take your crafting to the next level, why not make your own bag as well? Here’s a gift bag template you can customise in seasonal colours and patterns.
