Posted by Margaret Dunham

Celebrate all things Captain America with craft projects inspired by the star-spangled man himself! These snacks and crafts are the perfect way to gear up for Cap’s next appearance on the big screen in Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, prepare to marathon his previous movies, or just plain celebrate the US of A. We may not have knocked out Adolf Hitler over 200 times, but we can celebrate the hero who did with these fabulous projects.

Liberty and Cupcakes for All: Love fondant? Try this recipe for fondant-shield cupcakes from Craftsy. Hate fondant? Then this no-fondant recipe from Being Geek Chic is for you! Fondant need not divide us.


A Cap for Cap: Knit up this stars-and-bars 4th of July Hat from Mary Jane, Midge & Mink in a cozy wool for winter wear or a lighter cotton blend to wear in the summer months.


Just(ice) Desserts: Whip up a batch of delicious red-white-and-blue ice cream sandwiches or tasty popcorn balls from Thrifty Jinxy to snack on.


Colors that Don’t Run: Tie dye your own Captain America tee with instructions and a photo tutorial from Simply Kelly Designs.
