Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Hello friends, today I’m sharing a July 4th Tabletop Decor post I did with Duck Tape® . I wanted to create some fun July 4th pieces for my table setting this year using some patterned and solids duct tape.
If you follow my blog then you know I use foam pieces a lot on my site. Pairing up the foam pieces with duct tape is a perfect match and you can create so many beautiful things together like this Easter Bunny craft I did a couple months ago. When I had the challenge of coming up with a July 4th craft using Duct Tape, I knew immediately that I wanted to incorporate foam into this project.
So let’s get started!
July 4th Tabletop Decor Supply Needed:
After I received my duct tape in the mail, I headed over to the craft store to find my July 4th Sprays! I’ve never used sprays before so I was hoping they had some in stock. They DID!!
Step 1 – Pick Out Duck Tape
Duck Tape has lots of patterns you can choose from, but I had to go classic Patriotic color scheme for this project. I was excited to use the flag pattern.
Step 2 – Wrap Duck Tape Around Cube
To start off, wrap your duct tape around the bottom edge of your foam cube. Make sure to smooth down as you wrap your duct tape around.
Next, wrap the duct tape around the top.
Finally add duct tape to the center of the foam cube.
Step 3 – Wrap Other Side of Cube
Now repeat the process on the other side of the foam cube. When your finished, the whole cube should be covered in duct tape.
They look great!
Step 4 – Add Festive Sprays
Now the fun part.. Adding the sprays!
I pulled out my “handy dandy” X-Acto knife and cut an X so that I can add my sprays easily.
Firmly press the sprays into the foam. You can add as many as you like. I even added a couple flags I had on hand.
I’m just LOVE how these turned out, don’t you?!?! They will be so festive on my tabletop.
Now that I’m finished with this craft I can start decorating my table.
These pretty starfish I got from Pier1 a couple years ago. They were Christmas decorations, but I always thought they looked more appropriate for July 4th.
As always, thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest project. I am so excited with how this table setting turned out. I can’t wait to set it up exactly like this for my July 4th dinner party this year!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
Have a blessed July 4th this year!
