4th of July Craft
Unbelievable what you can do with a little Mod Podge. Love the stuff. Need to play with it more often. I love the idea of this craft for 4th of July and all the possibilities it gets me thinking about. Using a free printable from a past feature of mine, Emily exercised her style with a bit of mod podge, fabric, sand paper and crafty skills. She created a piece of art for the 4th of July holiday, but really………you could use it year round.

Another fabulous blog full of great ideas to make your home a better place with doable ideas and projects. It’s the projects that are quick but amazing that make me pay attention. Remember I’m a lazy crafter, not nearly as talented as the rest of you. But I can dip a mean strawberry. Dipped Strawberries will impress anyone. And seriously, they couldn’t be easier. Really. I pick up candy melts from Michael’s or the grocery, some big pump strawberries and just dip away. I saw this idea in a magazine too, so I was happy to see a reminder on her blog. Using vanilla dipping chocolate and really blue sprinkles, you’ve got yourself a very impressive 4th of July picnic hostess gift.
Stenciling…….not so easy in my book. But with a couple of run tries it should work. I have recovered a chair pad and surprisingly, very easy. Painting any old chair instantly adds style. Don’t you agree? This is so cute.
I was happy to see a few party ideas on her blog too. Mustaches are all the rage. She has all the information on her site with the details of her Mustache party. She even has a free printable. The party was full of details. From the bow tie cookies, to the chocolate mustaches……it was a hit.Another party I’ve seen pop up a few times, is a Milk and Cookies party. Again…….pretty simple to throw together but packs that impressive punch. It’s all in the details people. Flavored milk, take home bags…….love it all. You’ll find a variety of topics on her blog. Decorating, crafts, parties, cooking. In fact she has a yummy recipe for fried ravioli. Yum!
Be the first few to surprise her and let her know she’s been featured and I’ll give you a friendly shout out on my facebook page. You really do make their day. it’s always nice to be recognized. Spread the love.
