Free July 4th Crafts Offer an Opportunity to Celebrate America for Less
Northbrook, IL July 4, 2009— As Obama’s presidential campaign so effectively demonstrated, Americans are eager for renewed patriotism. The campaign set off a movement which reinvigorated many people’s faith in America, its ideals and its potential. July 4th, the date of our nation’s birth, is sure to be an important and exciting celebration this year. With the current economic situation, many belt-tightening consumers will forgo store-bought decorations and other traditional purchases for July 4th celebrations.
The booming DIY movement, supported by a vibrant and readily available online community, will offer numerous alternatives to show patriotism. Free July 4th crafts require little to no monetary expenditure and encourage people to show pride in an active way. Americans can create brag-worthy decorations for a July 4th barbecue or create something unique to wear to the fireworks. For many Americans disenchanted with mass-market retail and overconsumption, these free July 4th crafts are a more personal and endearing way to celebrate.
The economy is certainly not the only reason people are turning to free July 4th crafts. Holiday crafting, like all crafting, encourages social occasions where friends and family members can create something together. The appearance of numerous craft clubs all over the country attests to the growing popularity and pride in handmade objects. Teaching each other and learning together, crafting is an altogether positive social experience based on cooperation rather than competition.
Crafting encourages people to value handmade items and look for no-cost or low-cost options for entertainment. Instead of spending money on disposable decorations this July 4th, American will devote time to celebrating the country with free July 4th crafts. Fewer disposable decorations and less plastic packaging for store-bought goods means less trash for the landfill. In this way, thriftiness through crafting is also an environmental choice, one which many Americans will consider this July 4th.
