Coffee Filter Uncle Sam a Dollar Tree Kids Craft

Sharing is caring!

I love crafting with my nieces and nephews, and even though they are getting older, they still love crafting with me too! Dollar Tree crafts are a favorite because I always have a ton of supplies on hand, so we don't have to wait to get crafty! Today we are taking wooden clothespins, wiggle eyes, and glitter glue from the Dollar Tree and transforming them into a patriotic Coffee Filter Uncle Sam craft with a sparkly white beard!

Here's how to create a Coffee Filter Uncle Sam for the Fourth of July:


Fold the coffee filter in half and place on top of gallon size zipper bag.  Apply silver glitter glue in a swirl pattern over the entire folded coffee filter.  Set aside to dry.

Paint bottom one-third of the clothespin with flesh tone craft paint.  Paint the top two-thirds of the clothespin with red craft paint.  Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

With a skinny paintbrush add white stripes to the red hat section of the clothespin.  Draw and then cut a mustache shape from white craft paper with scissors.  Attach mustache to bottom of clothespin and wiggle eyes just above using glue gun and glue sticks.  Using the end of a paintbrush add a dot of peach craft paint for Uncle Sam’s nose.  Cut a rectangular hat brim from blue craft paper and glue to clothespin where the red and flesh tone paint meet.  Draw a square of silver glitter glue above hat brim as a buckle.

To finish, punch a star from blue craft paper and attach red letter stickers spelling USA.  Attach to Uncle Sam’s beard.
