DIY 4th of July Milk Bottle Decorations

Sharing is caring!

DIY red, white, and blue paper decorations on straws in milk bottles for 4th of July celebration.

We are just weeks away from the 4th of July so I am excited to start sharing some of my decoration projects with you. I love 4th of July because it is a day that morning until evening is all about family and being outside celebrating the beautiful United States. Our fourth of July typically starts with watching hot air balloons, going to a parade, having a barbecue and ending with fireworks. I have so many great memories surrounding 4th of July. I was excited to work with Oriental Trading company for this craft project. Seriously, you can find everything for any craft project at Oriental Trading Company! I have a few projects that I will be sharing with you using their product in the next few days. First off is our DIY 4th of July Milk Bottles!

DIY Milk Bottles
Patriotic Paper Stack
Striped Straws (note straws I used were not from Oriental Trading)

1. Paint Milk Bottles Red, White and Blue. Even though the Milk Bottles were already white, I still painted one white because it added depth and texture to the Milk Bottle.

2. Let Milk Bottles Dry.Three DIY 4th of July Milk Bottle Decorations with blue, red, and white caps, respectively; the red paint bottle is tipped over with paint spilled on the surface.

3. While Milk Bottles are drying, use your Cricut Machine to cut out circles with the Patriotic Paper. I used a 2 inch circle and 1 1/2 inch circle. Use multiple of your favorite papers so you can mix and match when assembling.A collection of DIY circular paper cutouts with various patterns, predominantly featuring stars and stripes in red, white, and shades of blue for 4th of July milk bottle decorations.   4.
