Welcome to our newest blog feature, JAMmin' Friday Favorites! JAMmin' Friday Favorites is going to be our new weekly Friday post with a collection of things that we are currently obsessed with. From other blog posts, to crafts, to fun products we have to offer, we’ll keep you up to date on what’s going on in the world of paper. Check back each week for new updates from the minds of us at JAM! FRI-YAY for you! First up, Memorial day crafts!

 Memorial Day is right around the corner so get ready for those parties with some homemade decorations.

1. DIY Patriotic Mason Jars

Need a table centerpiece for that backyard BBQ you’re hosting? We found these super cute patriotic mason jars! Bonus: They’re easy and cheap to make! Mason jars and some simple red, white and blue acrylic paints are all you need, both of which are easy on the budget. When you’re done, fill them with some fresh flowers (or, if you’re feeling really ambitious, make some paper ones) and throw ‘em on the table for a fresh and memorable centerpiece- these are memorial day crafts we can all enjoy.

2. Easy-Peasy Fabric Flag Wreath

Want to impress guests before they even walk through the door? Whip up this wreath really quick before your guests arrive, hang it on the door and boom! Patriotism at its finest! This seriously couldn’t be easier or more affordable. With some scraps of fabric, a Styrofoam wreath, and the ability to tie a knot, this wreath will come together in no time…which is perfect because Memorial Day is coming in hot!

3. Colorful Bandana Napkin Holders

These silverware rollups are perfect for any party, from the casual get together to something a little more formal. The simplicity of them really tie a place setting together, but the bandana and casual twine tie will give the whole table a rustic feel. Plus, the bandana can serve as a re-usable napkin. Winning.

4. Paper Windsocks

We LOVE this idea for these kid-friendly, hanging paper windsocks. This is a great memorial day craft to try every year! They’re perfect to put outside in the breeze and you can find all the supplies you need from JAM! Make a bunch, string ‘em together and hang them up. Your little ones will be having so much fun that you’ll have all the time in the world to make some more advanced crafts.

5. Red and White Painted Baskets

If you’re like the JAM marketing team in any way, this is a memorial day craft that you MUST consider- because we LOVE snacks. And what’s a party without snacks? Probably not a very good one. To really kick your patriotic party up a notch on Memorial Day Weekend, get your paintbrush out and start making these flag-themed baskets. They are the perfect memorial day craft for filling with chips, pretzels, or if you’re feeling particularly healthy, fresh fruit. Lined with bright blue napkins (or leftover blue bandanas from the rollups that you obviously made), these baskets will be sure to make your snacks shine! As if we need another excuse to stuff our faces…

What It Is: Memorial Day Crafts

Memorial Day crafts are DIY projects that are specifically designed to celebrate and honor the brave men and women who have served in the military. These crafts often incorporate patriotic colors such as red, white, and blue, as well as symbols like stars and stripes. They can range from simple paper crafts to more intricate projects, and are a great way to add a personal and meaningful touch to your Memorial Day celebrations.

The Benefits of Memorial Day Crafts

Engaging in Memorial Day crafts not only allows you to express your patriotism and honor the military, but it also provides an opportunity for creativity and bonding with friends and family. These crafts can serve as meaningful decorations for your home or event, and can also be given as thoughtful gifts to veterans or active service members.

Use Cases for Memorial Day Crafts

Memorial Day crafts can be used in a variety of ways, such as creating handmade cards to send to military personnel, crafting patriotic wreaths to hang on your front door, or making festive centerpieces for your Memorial Day gathering. These crafts can also be used as educational tools to teach children about the significance of the holiday and the importance of honoring those who have served.

Alternatives to Traditional Memorial Day Crafts

If traditional Memorial Day crafts aren't your style, there are plenty of alternative ways to get creative and show your patriotism. Consider organizing a community service project to support veterans, hosting a fundraiser for a military charity, or participating in a local Memorial Day parade. These activities can be just as meaningful and impactful as crafting, and can provide a different way to honor and remember our service members.

Tips for Using Memorial Day Crafts

When creating Memorial Day crafts, consider using materials that are made in the USA to further support American businesses and manufacturers. Additionally, involve children in the crafting process to teach them about the significance of the holiday and the importance of honoring our military. Finally, consider donating any crafts you make to local veterans' organizations or military hospitals to spread joy and appreciation to those who have served.
