These 4th of July Rolling Pins are Perfect for Tiered Trays

Make some 4th of July rolling pins for a tiered tray or kitchen display. They couldn’t be easier (or cuter) and the same method can be made for TONS of holidays, seasons, and occasions. You will NOT need a cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette!

I picked up a pack of two different sizes and will say that if you have a small to medium sized tray, get the smaller ones. If you have a three tier or larger base (12 inches+), the longer rolling pins will stand out.

4th of July Rolling Pin

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I’m really working on my mid-year decor. I don’t know if it’s the heat or what but I get a wee bit lazy and usually just whip out a wreath for the front door and call it done.

This year, however, I’m building themes for some tiered trays and a built-in bookcase we have. Each of these are really easy to decorate and small projects like this really pack a big design punch.

This week, I’m working on the 4th of July tiered tray in the kitchen so it makes sense to whip up some patriotic mini rolling pins. I have a few other pieces publishing soon to round out my Independence Day decor and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Tips for Making This Farmhouse Rolling Pin Craft

  • The BEST part about this craft is that you don’t need a ton of craft supplies – nothing fancy at all is needed. You can make a rolling pin tray set with only pins, paper, and some glue.
  • I chose papers which were flag-adjacent – meaning, they didn’t have the American flag on them. I have a tiny flag I’m using in a miniature flower pot but there are flag papers.
  • Make sure that you cover the entire rolling pin surface with ModPodge. This is important because if the paper lifts up, it’s likely to look ratty and get torn.
  • While these Independence Day rolling pins are perfect for the 4th, remember that you can easily change out the scrapbook paper and have a whole new theme to put on your rolling pins.
  • If you have a cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette, I have a ton of 4th of July SVG files and designs you can put on them. Use a minimalist paper design or paint the pins so the cut files will stand out.
  • For a less natural look, use acrylic paint to color the ends of your July 4th rolling pins. If you do that, seal the paint to avoid chipping or color transfer.
