Memorial Day Projects


Memorial Day is an important holiday in the United States. Observed on the last Monday in May, it is a day set aside to honor and remember the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. It is a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by these individuals and their families.

One way to commemorate Memorial Day is by creating handmade crafts that honor our fallen heroes. Here are some Memorial Day craft projects to inspire your creativity:

  1. Patriotic Wreath

Create a wreath in red, white, and blue to decorate your front door. Use artificial flowers or ribbon to form a base, then add small American flags, stars, and other patriotic decorations. This will not only show your support for the troops but also add a festive touch to your home.

  1. Memorial Day Banner

Create a banner that spells out “Memorial Day” or “Remember Our Heroes” to hang across your front porch or deck. Use cardstock, paint, and glitter to make it stand out. Alternatively, you could make a banner with photos of loved ones who served in the military and have passed away.

  1. Poppy Flower Crafts

The poppy is a symbol of remembrance for fallen soldiers. You can make a simple poppy craft using tissue paper or crepe paper in shades of red and black. Cut out petals and glue them together, then add a black center with a small piece of green paper for the stem. Pin them to your clothes, use them in your Memorial Day wreath, or create a poppy garland.

  1. American Flag Mason Jars

Mason jars can be decorated with small American flags and red, white, and blue ribbon to create a festive and patriotic display. Fill the jars with tea lights or flowers to create a centerpiece for your Memorial Day table.

  1. Memorial Day Memory Box

Create a memory box to store photos, letters, and other mementos from family members who have served in the military. Use paint or markers to decorate the outside with patriotic symbols such as an American flag or an eagle.

  1. Patriotic Pinwheels

Create pinwheels out of red, white, and blue paper to display in your garden or to use as decorations at your Memorial Day party. Add small American flags or stars for an extra patriotic touch.

These Memorial Day craft projects are a great way to show your support and honor our fallen heroes. They are also a fun and creative way to spend time with family and friends while celebrating the holiday.

Memorial Day is a time to reflect on those who have given their lives up for us to live freely. It’s also a day to celebrate those lives lost so, Shay thought she would decorate her house for just that. Stars are a great representation of everyone in the military because they are all-stars.
