My family loves parades, especially our local 4th of July parade. We live in a small town suburb just outside of a big city, so we get all the conveniences but will a small town feel. And for our little town, the parade is actually quite large. We go with our flags, and our candy bags, and this year we’re going with these fun Let Freedom Ring parade shakers I made!
Let’s get crafty and make these little LET FREEDOM RING shakers for your parade! You can pick the Glad Press ‘n Seal and most of the other supplies at Walmart!
- Glad Press’n Seal
- my free digital download – The-Celebration-Shoppe-Let-Freedom-Ring
- paper straws
- washi tape (to secure the straw)
- Attach straw handle with washi tape
- Cut a piece of Glad Press N Seal about the size of the paper and wrap the bottom and sides
- Insert bells in top and close
- Tie ribbon for a little added pretty
Glad Press N Seal is also a great DIY mason jar lid! Perfect for keeping the bugs off your favorite summer beverage while you wait for the parade to start.
And the best part, it’s as simple as placing the Glad Press N Seal on the top of the jar, adding the outer screw top lid, using scissors or a straight edge to cut off the excess (won’t hurt the glass jar) and poking a hole in the center for the straw. I added a strip of ribbon for decoration on the jar, and little washi tape flags on the straws. A few minutes of crafting for a very fun outcome.
By the way, if you’ve lost the outer rim to those mason jars, the Glad Press N Seal… seals. Ha! So no need for it!
