Make it: 4th of July Crafts and Recipes

Mango Salmon, Grilled Corn & Spiked Lemonade
Smores on a Stick & Cherry Cheesecake Pie

Star Painted and Stitched Napkins& Cookie Cutter Napkin Rings

These are so easy to make. The cookie cutters were Mod Podged with fabric scrap strips to give them a little extra pop. I picked the napkins up from Target and jazzed them up with a little Folkart fabric paint and embroidery floss. Click for complete instructions.

Recycled Denim Table Runner

This is the perfect project for recycling an old pair of jean and for using up scrap fabrics. Click for complete instructions.

Quilted Star - Made with fabric and Mod Podge!

I picked up the star from a shop call Big Lots, a discount store that always has seasonal merchandise. The star was painted with a "not so hot" stars and stripes design - so I painted over it and Mod Podged some quilting fabrics to the points. Click for complete instructions.

New babies will want to join in the celebration! Jazz up some $dollar store items with a little fabric paint.
Firecracker Bean Bag Toss

Build your own backyard carnival game with old coffee cans and a piece of plywood. Kids will love playing this classic game of toss.
