A Patriotic Craftastic Monday Party!

Happy 4th of July Monday Everyone!  For those of you here in the USA, I hope you have a fantastic holiday.  We'll be enjoying a family-filled day in the sunshine, so the crafting I'll be doing is eating food outside.

Before we get to the holiday festivities, let's enjoy a few links from last week's parties - there were loads of great ideas!

I love how simple, yet striking these framed felt pinwheels are.  My oldest son is a HUGE pinwheel fan, so I think we'll be making this.  Get the complete how-to from Little Lovelies:

Want a fresh, DIY look in no-time?  Check out this beyond easy no-sew idea from Brassy Apple to add sequin embellishment in a flash:

How about this adorable sunsuit from EmmylouBee Designs made from a 1940's pattern?  I've got to make one of these!

And for a last-minute holiday item - The Seven Year Cottage has a quick tutorial for making this little food topper flags.  

From the Kids Can Craft link party, my "Pick of the Week" was from Impress Your Kids, who shared this super easy & super fun DIY sidewalk chalk paint:


The Kids Can Craft Party is for projects kids can make.  It's always open and the projects do not have to be new (so if you've got a good one from last year, throw it up there!).  You can link up ANYTIMEJust click HERE to get to that party.  Please remember to link back or put the Kids Can Craft button on your blog:)

Ready to link up?
Party rules are simple:

  • As long as it's crafty and made by you it's Craftastic (no links to giveaways, shops, other link parties or other people's work - THEY WILL BE REMOVED).  Just add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog.  The code's on the sidebar ->
  • Check out some of the other great links and share some crafty comment love.
I now leave the party open until 10:00pmEST every Friday, so there's plenty of time to add your newest creations.
