If you’re looking for last minute 4th of July crafts to do with your kids to decorate your new or used RV, check out these two fun projects! They use items you already have at home and are fast, easy, and festive!
These fun windsocks are a breeze to make and enjoy!
Use empty (and clean) tin cans, removing both the top and bottom lids as well as the label. Use indoor/outdoor paint to give them a full blue coverage, then add stars (freehand it or use a stencil). Add twine hot glued to the inside of one end to create a hanger, and then glue on plenty of red, white, and blue sparkly ribbon to the other end, also on the inside rim of the can. Voila! A fantastic and easy windsock.

Finally – a use for white crayons! This fun and easy 4th of July craft will use them right up!
Don’t throw away broken crayon stubs – use them for this fantastic 4th of July garland.
You’ll need the following:
- wax paper
- parchment paper
- red, white, and blue crayon stubs
- garland string
- hole punch
- vegetable peeler (optional)
Remove the crayon’s paper wrappings and break into tiny crumbly pieces. Or, you can use a vegetable peeler to shave them down.
Make an envelope of wax paper and spread the crayon pieces in evenly. Next, fold parchment paper around the wax paper to contain oozy melted wax (and it will ooze). With your iron on low heat, gently press the packet for 15-20 seconds at a time until the crayon shavings melt evenly. Set aside to cool – about 2 minutes. Next, trace or stencil stars and cut out, punch a hole in the top point, and string together. You can also use a star cookie cutter to trace the shape.
Grab a more in-depth tutorial here. My kids love making crayon wax garlands year round for every holiday – just change up the crayon colors and garland shapes to suit the holiday. Holiday cookie cutters provide great shapes and sizes so you can have a festive garland all year long!
