10 Fun and Easy Ideas for the 4th of July

Summer is full-on here in Georgia with lots of heat and humidity and the 4th of July is right around the corner. It's time to bring out the red, white and blue! Haven't decorated? No worries! I am sharing my most popular patriotic projects and many of them are so easy that you can create them today and have them ready to impress your guests on the 4th! Be sure to check out the Strawberry Tunnel Cake. It's a hit at my house all summer long!

My NO-SEW POTTERY BARN INSPIRED PATRIOTIC BANNER is easy to make and doesn't require you to sew a single stitch! And it's not just for the holidays. It stays on my back door all the time.

And here's another NO-BAKE STRAWBERRY TUNNEL CAKE! I make it all summer and I love the fact that it doesn't heat up my kitchen with a hot oven!

This is probably my STARS AND STRIPES BURLAP WREATH! It is sooo easy to make because, quite literally, all you do is tie knots! Seriously!

This one is so easy that I hardly dare to call it a LAST MINUTE PATRIOTIC CANDLES AND VASES. Just cut, tie and add whatever you, silverware, candles, etc! How easy is that!

These little gems were fun to make and add some red, white and blue to my dé STARS AND STRIPES RAG BALL FILLER!

Your guests will really enjoy these fun party favors or you could just use them as dé COUNTRY LIVING INSPIRED VINTAGE FIRECRACKER FAVORS.  Just fill them with sparklers or snap 'n' pops for some holiday fun!

It wouldn't be complete for me without a pillow to reflect the I created this POTTERY BARN INSPIRED STARS AND STRIPES PILLOW. It actually stays out all summer at my house!

Here's a fun idea for your mantel or your INDOOR/OUTDOOR LIGHTED PATRIOTIC GARLAND! And it's super easy, too!

This is my new summery patriotic POTTERY BARN INSPIRED PAPER STAR WREATH! Who knew scrapbooking paper could look so festive!

A trip to Dollar Tree netted me just about everything I needed to make these DIY PATRIOTIC FIRECRACKERS. You won't believe what they actually are! They were a fun addition to my mantel last summer!

Now all I need is some fresh corn and watermelon and I will be ready! What about you?
