Footprint Flag

This is a great activity to do with your family. First, find an old picture frame and cover it with plain white paper. Then, paint your hands blue to make the stars and your feet red for the stripes. Use the finished frame as a nice backdrop for your food bar.

Tin Can Flags

All you need for this craft are old tin cans, tea lights, and paint. Take the cans and paint red, white, and blue stripes on them. Next, use either a drill or a hammer and nails to make unique designs. Once it starts to get dark outside, you can add the tea lights and light them for pretty yet (virtually) effortlessly festive outdoor lamps.
