4th of July Crafts and Printables

The 4th of July is very quickly sneaking up on me this year! I have managed to get a couple of crafts made though! Here's a look at them:

The first is a Star door hanger made with hardboard and bead board--super simple and super cute!
 Then I made this bead board flag using my leftover bead board--I just painted and antiqued it and glued a star on!
 I love these firecrackers I made using a big dowel. I just painted them, and then Mod Podged some cute patriotic scrapbook paper to them. Then I drilled a little hole on top and added wire fuses. Add a little tag with some jute cord and that's it!
 I made these USA blocks using a leftover 2x4. I Mod Poged the same scrapbook paper to the blocks and then added the USA letters that I just cut out with my Cricut. I added a few embellishments to spruce it up a bit too.
I'm getting ready to host this year's 4th of July BBQ for some family and friends, and I'm so excited! I absolutely LOVE the 4th of July. There are so many fun traditions with this holiday! I also just finished a new Printable Party Pack that I will be using this year--here's what it looks like:
You can find this set in my Etsy store HERE!
 Here's a few pictures of last year's party!!
