4th of July Parade Wands

Independence Day is seriously probably my very favorite holiday. I know that may seem strange, but I love the weather and all of the festivities that come along with the 4th of July. One of my favorite festivities is the parade! I don’t mind waking up early to get a spot and sitting by complete strangers. I love watching the firetrucks, BMX bikers, and high school bands go by. It has always been one of my favorite parts of the entire summer. I thought it would be fun to make some 4th of July parade wands to hold up during the parade to show our patriotism and celebrate!

 I was given a bunch of fabulous glitter products from American Crafts to play with and I knew that parade wands would be the perfect project for this stuff! I love how they turned out and I can’t wait to use them. Here is what you need to make your own…

4th of July Glitter Decor

 First, I cut out stars using the electronic cutter. I cut out two different sizes of stars. Then I decorated each star a little differently using the stickers and tape.

Then I used hot glue to glue the starts onto the skewers. They were so easy to make! I am so excited for the 4th of July!

Be sure to like American Crafts on Facebook and follow them on Pinterest too!

I was compensated for this post by American Crafts, but all opinions are 100% mine.


  1. Love these! Aren’t these glitter products the best?! I’m showing off the gold ones tomorrow, but I can’t wait to make more things with them… I kind of have a glitter obsession. 🙂

  2. So cute! I love those 3D stars!

  3. Super cute. They will be great at the parade. I loved their glitter products. But then again, it is glitter, what is not to love!

  4. What a cute and simple idea!

  5. Love the glitter! Independence Day sounds fun, we don’t have a day like that in New Zealand.

    • You really are missing out! It is such a fun holiday. You should come to the states and celebrate the holiday sometime! I bet New Zealand has some great traditions and holidays that we are missing out on over here too!
