Fourth of July Inspiration

Have I told you all that right after Christmas, the Fourth of July is my other favorite holiday?  Say what? It’s your second favorite holiday too? Knew there was something I liked about you!

I really wanted to be fun this 4th of July and make cute decorations to put up around the house, and I wanted to make a wreath to hang on my stand by our front door. But unless something changes in the next day or two it looks like I won’t be getting to create any fun patriotic crafts.  You can thank my son’s yucky Hydrocephalus symptoms for that. (Don’t know what Hydrocephalus is? Don’t worry there are awesome sites you can google, or just wait for my next post, titled “Hydrocephalus Sucks.”)
So instead of posting what I made (which was nothing!), I am going to show you what I would have made if Levi’s Hydro symptoms weren’t acting crazy this week.

How about this cute wreath from Landee See, Landee Do

Or this cute Fruit Flag Snack from Momma D and  Da Boyz (My littles would love to munch on that)

Love this Firework wreath from Copy-Cat Crafts

And if I were cool enough I would print out this fun and FREE printable from Madigan Made

So many cool projects right?  If you liked any of them, please try them, and stop by those ladies’ blogs and let them know.

I hope you can still have a great Fourth of July even though you've not had the time to make things. Thinking of you x

I love these! thanks for sharing. I'm posting some "summer time" items (couldn't find any 4th of July) from my Great Aunt Molly's stach--circa 1909.
p.s. nice to meet you...I just found your blog a couple of weeks ago!
