4th of July Windsock Craft 1

Pin It
 This 4th of July Windsock craft is simple and easy to make and will look great hanging outside your door on Independence Day.

Materials:

  • wooden embroidery hoop
  • red, white, and blue crepe paper rolls
  • card stock
  • small star shape
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tape
  • yarn or string

Directions:

  1. Cut about 8 long lengths each of red and white crepe paper. Cut 8 lengths of blue crepe paper about a third of the length of the others.
  2. Trace and cut out stars from card stock and glue about 3 each on the blue crepe paper strips. You could alternate 3 stars on half of the blue strips and 2 stars on the other half.
  3. Wrap the ends of the red and white crepe paper over the loop and secure with tape. Alternate the colors. Then tape the blue strips on top of that.
  4. Tie a piece of string on either side of the loop and hang on a hook outside. The neighbors will be impressed as they drive by.
