Patriotic Craft – “God Bless America” Printable. We are heading into summer which means – the patriotic season is right around the corner.

All-American pastimes like baseball and barbecues, picnics, and parades will soon be on my family’s agenda. I also love seeing all the classic red, white, and blue décor that will sprout up.

We had a friend design the music chart for “God Bless America” made available to you here.

With a few fabric covered buttons, you have a great focal piece for your summer vignettes, mantels, or tablescapes.

How To Make The “God Bless America” Craft

Step 1 – Print

Print out the “God Bless America” printable on cardstock.

Find some different patriotic fabrics and cut out little pieces for covered buttons.

Step 2 – Add-Ons

I used my I-Top Button Maker to cover some small buttons with the Pin Buttons on the back.

Step 3 – Paint

I gave an 8″ x 10″ frame a quick coat of Krylon Cherry Red spray paint.

I punched holes in the music notes and slid my brad backed covered buttons through and then opened the brads on the backside so they would stay in place.

Then I popped that into the frame.

Instant patriotic craft and lovely décor!

  1. Super Cute little piece for the upcoming holidays! The button covers are a neat surprise.
    Over the weekend, my mom and I were looking for a DIY pinata tutorial. I checked a few on Pinterest and started getting frustrated at not finding what I was looking for. Then, I remembered you had done something for a couple birthday parties. I searched your website and VIOLA! There it was. Thanks so much for providing and sharing such great project ideas.

  2. Thank you so much for the printable! I made this last night with a few modificatons due to not having a button thingy, or 4th of July type fabric on hand. I did however have red spray paint and an old frame, and 2 inch wide ‘flag’ ribbon… So I just cut small circles out of the ribbon and glued them onto the printable! You could also cut small circles out of scrapbook paper, but that wouldn’t be as much fun, plus I like mixing fabric (or in my case, ribbon) with paper, its a texture thing 🙂 Anyways, Thanks again for a great post and all your hard work!!

  3. This is adorable Becky! I’ve been making them for my mom and aunts who will LOVE them! I have had difficulty with the I-Top though. The brads don’t always stay in so I end up super gluing the whole piece together. Any tips for using this with fabric? Thanks for sharing all your great ideas!

  4. You have to make sure that the brad goes into the Itop straight. My other guess is maybe you are using too much fabric. It definitely takes practice.

  5. This is a wonderful idea and craft but the printable is not correct. Measures 2 and 4 only have 3 beats when they should have 4.

  6. This is so simple yet has so much personality. Thanks so much for sharing your printable song. This project gave me an opportunity to use my new I-top tool. I used paper instead of fabric and by the second brad I had it mastered. Do you have any Christmas music that we can print? I’d love to make these for Christmas gifts.

  7. Thank you so much for providing this printable~so appreciated. My dear friend Carole, she and her son and my oldest are best friends. Her son was injured in Kuwait in and IED explosion. It left her son a quadrapalegic. She decorates her home inside from now thru September in red white & blue, as do I. I am going to make this for her as I know it will be a nice addition to her patriotic decor. Her son is fine and doing well and he and his wife celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary by having twins! a boy and a girl…

  8. Wow! I am glad to hear he is doing so well. It is so thoughtful of you to make this art for your friend, and I hope she loves it. I’d love to see it when you’re done! 🙂

  9. Totally sweet of you to share the printable for this as well as the adorable idea! I just started looking for patriotic ideas and came across yours — can’t wait to make my own!

  10. I absolutely love this idea! I was unable to pull the printable up on my iPad. Is it still available?

  11. Thanks so much, Kayla. Yes, it’s still available as a pdf file. Could you possibly try it from another computer? It just opened fine on mine. Let me know if you have any more trouble.

  12. Thanks Beckie! I was able to open it on my laptop. Can’t wait to make this for my violin studio!
