Memorial Day Crafts

The long Memorial Day weekend is the official start of summer! So what better time to get some crafts going with the kids? These Memorial Day crafts are the perfect way to kick off the warm summer season.

Paper Pinwheels


Colorful paper pinwheels whirl with just the slightest breeze (or puff!). They are fun to play with indoors or out, and even more fun to make! Create a DIY pinwheel, or two, for fun or to add a little flair to your next family gathering. For a Memorial Day barbecue, try red, white, and blue for your DIY pinwheel.

Melted Crayon Rocks


Make a set of these fun, colorful rocks in red, white, and blue for Memorial Day! They’re handy for weighing down napkins at a BBQ or picnic, and they make great paperweights.

DIY Burlap American Flags


Painting right on burlap gives these flags a great rustic look–the perfect patriotic family craft for the long Memorial Day weekend! Use them to decorate around the house, inside or out.

Red, White, and Blue 3D Stars


Get ready for Memorial Day weekend with this banner of 3D stars. These DIY stars are super simple, once you learn the technique of making a single petal. As you create each petal, the 3D stars will start to come into form. You can experiment with different layers, sizes, and shapes.

Patriotic Rocks


All you need to make these festive rocks is a little bit of paint! Use them as decoration for Memorial Day and 4th of July, or for table decoration at barbecues all summer long.

Patriotic Rag Wreath


Rag wreaths are easy to make and fun for the kids to get involved with. This Patriotic Wreath makes the perfect welcome for a Memorial Day weekend get-together.
