Whether you are stuck in the city or out of town at the cottage, these Americana DIY projects will be a great source of inspiration for some Fourth of July crafting. While dressing up a pair of white sneakers in stars and stripes is a great option you'll be able to integrate into your wardrobe year round, there are also a few short-term projects that are ripe for the Independence Day season.

Red, blue and white woven place mats are a great way to incorporate the theme while showing off your crafting skills. Additionally, adding a homemade American flag necklace to your outfit is a quick way to arrive on theme, while DIY flag-bearing denim cuffs infuse your look with the spirit of rustic Americana design.
