Happy Fourth of July: Project Ideas!

Happy Fourth of July everyone! I hope that you are all having fun with family and friends, while BBQing some yummy food and waiting for the fireworks to start!

What a better way to celebrate our wonderful Countries Birthday then with a pattern round up! I didn’t personally get to work on any Red, White and Blue items this year, but that doesn’t mean I can enjoy looking at some! I have scoped out the internet and found some of my favorite Fourth of July projects that I want to share with you!

Fourth of JulyWhile making this list, I wanted to find stuff that you could do, the kids could do/wear and stuff for the house. That is why I decided to share the projects that I have in the above picture with you.

1. Pin Wheel Hairclips – by Cutesy Crafts – Aren’t this little clips so cute! I can see them being used in my girls hair as well as for embellishments for other projects!
2. Patriotic Crocheted Stars – Repeat Crafter Me – These have to be the cutest stars that I have come across! They have some awesome detail and are so versatile! I could see these used as an embellishment, a hair clip or maybe even attach some rings to them for jewelry or wine glass charms!

3. Patriotic String Lights – Jonathan Fong – I used to make these with my Mom was I was much younger. But instead of circular light decorations we made ours in the shape of eggs for Easter and hung them from the trees outside. They were always super fun to make! So, I think this would be an easy project for you to make with the kiddos!

4. Fourth of July Firework Hand Prints – A Little’ Pinch of Perfect – Yes, I have kids. As I am sure you all know by now. So, I am a sucker for anything made with their hand or foot prints! I remember the first year after Miss S was born, I made hand print stuff with the girls for every holiday. And made four of each on so that I could send them to their Grandparents too! Because come on… what Grandparent doesn’t love seeing homemade gifts from their Grandbabies?!?

Aren’t these little projects make you inspired to make some Red, White & Blue stuff? I know I will be making some of these but on a later date since I have run out of time to do them for this year.
Now you all have to share your Fourth of July projects with me! What is your favorite thing to make for this glorious holiday?!
