The Home of the Free and the Brave

Fourth of July is almost upon us (I can hardly believe it is July 1st!) and I've been stumbling upon such cute decorations to make your backyard celebration beautiful and fun. 

 Such a fun and easy banner made by cutting out several sizes of stars and sewing them together with some red thread. This would look cute on the front door, on the back porch, or anywhere really! 

 I'm loving this simple but fun display.  Red glass beads are used as a filler to hold the simple white candles. To make this even more budget-friendly, try sand or white rice as a filler and a red candle.  Such a cute way to spruce up the backyard and add some light as the sun goes down.

What super fun pom pom type sticks! They definitely add interest to this tablescape but would also make great favors for the kids to play with. I'm seeing 4th of July pictures with everyone waving these fun sticks. These would be easy to make using ribbon or paper.

The Crafting Chicks is offering this free printable that is oh so patriotic and fun. 

Stay tuned for a tutorial featuring pinwheels...oh how I loved pinwheels as a kid!
