Three weeks ago my sister-in-laws and I went to Hobby Lobby to get materials to make a wreath for my apartment. There were so many Christmas crafting materials there I got excited for the holiday season. Of course the apartment is too small the really decorate for Christmas, but a nice winter/Christmas wreath on the front door would be nice. I have had my eye on this one basically since Pinterest began!

Can’t believe Favorite Pin Friday is 10 weeks old now. Have you read them all? There are links at the bottom of the post so you can catch up…#FBF lol Today is about DIY 4th of July decorations. Every year the hubs and I throw a 4th of July party and every year it grows! The first year we had about 10 people and last year almost 40. Everyone seems to love it and look forward to it so we keep hosting. I rarely decorate since the party is outside and guests are more interested in BBQ and fireworks. Doesn’t mean I can’t decorate and Pinterest is full of crafty ideas for a patriotic party! Here are the favorite pins I’ve run across.
|Patriotic Monogram Door Hanger with Burlap Bow | Etsy|
|Patriotic String Lights | eHow|
So simple! Ballons, glue, yarn, and a string of lights (which you probably have from Christmas!) Another kid friendly project. Good luck with the sticky hands mom and dad 😉
|Rag Wreath | Sassy Sanctuary|
I think this would be easy, but cutting all those stripes of fabric would take awhile. I like this type of wreath as an alternative to the deco mesh wreaths everywhere.
KariAnne over at Thistlewood Farm shared cute and easy ways to decorate for the 4th. Tell me what you’re doing to decorate for 4th of July in the comments below.
I’ll be recapping our trip to California in Monday’s post. xoxo Becca
