  1. American Flag Candle

The American flag candle is a perfect way to show your patriotism. To make this candle, you will need a red and white striped candle, blue wax, and a star-shaped cookie cutter. First, melt the blue wax and pour it into a star-shaped mold. Once the wax has hardened, remove the star from the mold. Next, cut out small star shapes from the white stripes of the candle using the cookie cutter. Finally, melt the cutout stars and attach them to the blue star using a small amount of melted wax.

  1. Patriotic Mason Jar Candle

Mason jar candles are a popular craft project because they are easy to make and can be customized in many ways. For a patriotic twist, paint a mason jar red, white, and blue. Once the paint has dried, fill the jar with melted wax and add a wick. For added decoration, you can tie a ribbon around the jar or attach a small American flag to the outside.

  1. Firework Candle

Firework candles are a fun and festive way to celebrate the 4th of July. To make this candle, you will need a white pillar candle, red and blue wax, and a toothpick. First, melt the red and blue wax in separate containers. Next, dip the toothpick in the melted wax and draw a firework design on the candle. Once the design has hardened, repeat the process with the other color. You can also add glitter or small star-shaped confetti to the wax for an extra touch of sparkle.

Apple pie is a classic American dessert that is often associated with the 4th of July.
