Fourth of July Crafts and Supplies with Gift Cards Rock! {$25 Michaels Gift Card Giveaway}

While the first image that often comes to mind when thinking about celebrating the 4th of July is one of fireworks, that doesn't mean that the fun has to end there. There are plenty of great ways to celebrate our country's independence, from parades to barbeques to my kids' favorite, crafts.

There are just so many ways to incorporate red, white and blue with paper, ribbons, paint, glue and more that turn into festive decor that can be used again and again! Concerned that you don't know where to start? Just take a look at a few of the great ideas that can be found by a few minutes of browsing on Pinterest...


These adorable Patriotic Paper Starbursts require red, white and blue paper, tape, scissors, large brads and a hole punch - and the results are so much fun! These could be strung just about anywhere to brighten up your home or next party.


Looking for more of a statement for your centerpiece? This awesome Patriotic Ribbon Topiary looks as though it was created by a professional crafter, but can really be done by a novice.

Items needed are one large styrofoam ball, one clay pot, one wood dowel, straight pins and lots of ribbon... and start pinning away until you have the look that will stop your party guests in their tracks!


I love the way that a wreath form, ribbons, pins and paper can come together to create this incredibly bright and fun 4th of July Fireworks Wreath. With only around 20 minutes of time invested, you can hang this decor on your front door for a party or simply to show off your Independence Day support!

What do all of these great 4th of July crafts have in common? The project materials for each and every one of them are found at your local Michaels! Whatever you are creating, this is one store that has it all. Whether baking, sewing, decorating, scrapbooking, gifting, jewelry-making, woodworking or much more, it's no secret that Michaels is the place to go to pick up all of the supplies that you need.

As well as enjoying shopping for yourself, a gift card to Michaels is a present that is sure to be appreciated by any friend or family member that enjoys being creative. They can take their gift card and purchase a picture frame, artificial flowers, paints, yarn... whatever their heart desires. And no one knows better about gift cards than Gift Cards Rock!


Celebrate this Independence Day giveaway courtesy of Gift Cards Rock! an online community for people who love to give and receive gift cards: http://www.facebook.com/GiftCardsRock. You can also find more gift cards for any occasion at your local grocery store!

Thanks to their generosity, one person will going to be prepared to make their favorite craft project this summer, because...

One lucky person will win a $25 gift card to Michaels!


(Enter with the Rafflecopter form below. If you have any questions or problems entering, there is a video tutorial found here that can help.)

A big thank you to Gift Cards Rock! for providing a $25 Michaels gift card for me as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.
