Believe it or not,
I am not a big fan of fireworks.
They are loud,
And plain out annoying when your trying to sleep at night.
With this said,
The 4th of July night is not my favorite night.
I love everything else about the 4th of July!
I love the cookouts,
And the freedom that we celebrate!
I want to make our 4th of July party adorable!
( Without fireworks. )
So I began by making the drinks adorable!
I started by gathering my supplies!
-White CardStock (Regular paper works fine also.)
-Striped Straw (Doesn't have to be striped.)
-Hot Glue Gun (Regular glue works good too.)
I cut the paper twice the size I wanted my flag to be,
Because in the later steps I had to fold it in order to attach it to the flag.
I watercolored my flag!
Instead of painting the stars,
I painted around where the stars would be.
(There's no such thing as white water color paint!)
Once I finished painting,
I let the paint dry a little.
( This didn't take long at all!)
I secured my flag to the straw with glue.
It didn't take long to make this cutie!
It will be so fun for the party!
Y'all have fun crafting,
