Hey friends! I’m also hanging out at The 36th Avenue today sharing a furniture makeover I did for my daughter’s new room. I’d love for you to visit and check it out.
I’m so excited for the 4th of July this year! This will be the first year that my 2 year old daughter will probably have an idea of what is actually happening and I want her to be able to take part in the festivities. I decided to make some kid friendly Fourth of July Favors Made From Recycled TP Rolls… easy, inexpensive and safe :)
I am all about recycling and using what’s around the house and this project fits the bill!
- Red Burlap (about 1/2 yard for 5 favors)
- Red, White and Blue Ribbons
- TP Rolls
- Hot Glue Gun
- Fourth of July Printable (see below)
- Candy For Filler
Start by cutting your burlap into 15″ X 7 ” pieces. Then gently pull the strings off either side until the edges are straight, and trim.
Place your TP roll directly in the center.
Start to roll the burlap around the TP roll and place hot glue on the edges to secure it.
Tie one end of favor with ribbon, fill with candy and then tie the other side.
You can download the FREE printable here, and then print it off. I used my Silhouette to cut each tag, but you could easily just use scissors!
Place them in a basket and you are good to go! Your guests (of all ages) will love them.I mean who doesn’t like unwrapping a surprise and finding chocolate inside?! :)
I can’t wait for the kiddos to open them and find all of the goodies inside :) And I have a feeling the adults will be taking part too!
And here are a few other Fourth of July ideas I’ve shared on the blog:Wait Til Your Father Gets Home. Linking to some of the parties here along with Today’s Creative Blog, Home Stories A 2 Z, Funky Junk Interiors, The Shabby Nest, My Repurposed Life, The Shabby Creek Cottage, Thrifty Decor Chick
