4th Of July {Revisited}

Are you getting ready for the 4th of July? Busting out your red, white, and blue yet? I thought I’d share some of my patriotic crafting from last year, maybe it will inspire you this year! 
Last year I made this Patriotic Ribbon Topiary. I absolutely love this thing! It’s so bright and beautiful. It did however, take quite awhile to complete it and I ended up having to run to the store to get more ribbon. So if you decide to make this make sure you have two things: more ribbon than you think you need and lots of time!!!
Every month I hold craft make and takes at my house. Well ok, that was the plan. I TRY to have them every month, but lets face it, life gets in the way. Last year I held one in June and we made these USA Firecracker Blocks
I love these, they are so much fun! They can be customized to fit in with any 4th of July decor. And what’s 4th of July with a little fireworks???
I also made this Patriotic Rag Wreath last year. This is another project that takes a little while to complete but when it’s done, it’s beautiful! I used a variety of red, white, and blue fabrics in stripes, stars, and polka dots. 
I also shared a cheaper way to make a wreath form in this post, because who wouldn’t like to make fabulous projects for less money??? I love hanging this wreath on my door, it’s so festive and fun!
So please feel free to visit my projects from last year and I’m working away on my projects for this year! What 4th of July projects have you been up to???
Linking up to these great link parties!!!

  3. Hey! These are great! I’ve pinned them to use as ideas – but I am going to put a little Canadian spin on them!
