When planning the layout for your 4th of July cookout, you’ll want to use these patriotic party table free printables to create a fun and whimsical look for the food and drink stations.
You can use the “Sweet Summertime” print at your drink station, the “Let’s Eat” print on your main food table, and the “Happy July 4th” print anywhere.
This month, I’ve joined in with a group of bloggers for a Creative Craft Hop. Sara at Birdz of a Feather is our host. You’ll find 9 additional craft and decor projects, at the end of my post, that are being shared with all of our readers. Terrie at Decorate and More with Tip started out the hop, so if you’re coming from there, welcome!
PATRIOTIC PARTY TABLE FREE PRINTABLES
FRAMING YOUR PRINTS FOR TABLE DECORATIONS:
I placed my patriotic prints in acrylic self standing frames to keep everything easy and inexpensive.
I purchased my frames at Walmart. The 8×10 was $2.25 and the 5×7 sizes were $1.25. Very budget-friendly prices, right!?
PAINTING THE ACRYLIC FRAME:
If you have time to get a little crafty, you can spice up an 8×10 frame with painted dots like I did.
- acrylic frame
- Apple white craft paint #
- Apple red craft paint #
- Apple blue craft paint #
- dotting tools
Remove the attached film on the acrylic frames before painting.
TIP: Place a little bit of rolled tape on the back of the print for it to stay in the correct position in the 8×10 frame.
I used the end of a new pencil eraser to make the large dots, the end of an artist brush for the medium dots, and the tip of a ball point sewing pin for the tiny dots.
The blue paint isn’t the perfect color to match the print, but it’s the closest I had on hand.
Once the blue dots were completely dry, I went back and dotted with blue for a second coat for complete coverage.
PRINTING THE PATRIOTIC FREE PRINTABLES:
I had my printable designs printed at Staples on their laser printer. Since the designs have lots of red and blue, I didn’t want to use my home printer.
Laser printers produce crisper and brighter printables compared to home printers. Home prints will be fine, but they will look duller.
