4th of July Uncle Sam Hat Party Cups

Pin It
Make these decorative 4th of July snack cups for your next Independence Day bash.

Materials:

  • Styrofoam or paper cup
  • red and blue felt
  • scissors
  • glue
  • red paint
  • paintbrushes
  • silver pipe cleaners or silver star stickers

Directions:

  1. Lay the mouth of a paper cup down on red felt and trace the opening.
  2. Now trace another circle about 3/4 of an inch bigger around the first one.
  3. Cut out the big circle.
  4. Make a slit and cut out the inside circle. This ring will become the brim of the hat.
  5. Paint red stripes all the way around the cup.
  6. Cut a 1.5 inch wide rectangle from blue felt long enough to wrap around the top part of the cup.
  7. Glue on the blue felt.
  8. Turn cup upside down. Put glue all around the base of the opening and lay the red felt brim down on top. Allow to dry.
  9. Bend silver pipe cleaners into stars and glue to the blue field. Allow everything to dry.
  10. Fill with snacks and give them as party favors.
