Simple Fourth of July Windsocks

Make these simple patriotic windsocks for the 4th of July with stickers, plastic tablecloths, and a clear paint can. So easy!

I love seeing neighbors decorate their front porch with patriotic buntings, flags, and red, white and blue accents to celebrate the Fourth of July. At our house, I hang my big fireworks wreath every year, and the girls and I line our sidewalk with mini American flags for the holiday. This summer we're going to add these fun patriotic windsocks to the mix! 

We made these simple windsocks as part of Stars and Stripes Week for Camp Fun and they couldn't have been easier to make thanks to a few inexpensive supplies like stickers and plastic tablecloths. Yep, that is our secret supply for making them blow in the wind!

Tropical Flower Summer Wreath

Make this tropical flower wreath for your front door this summer! It would also be perfect for a luau or pool party!

It's official - today is the first day of summer! What better way to celebrate than making a new summer wreath for your home like this DIY tropical flower wreath? I love switching up the wreaths on our front door for different seasons throughout the year, and I think summer deserves a wreath just as much as the fall or Christmas time! 

I made this wreath with some pretty faux flowers from Oriental Trading. The colorful hibiscus and white plumeria remind me of our trip to Hawaii over Christmas.... I'm dying to go back! In addition to bringing a little bit of the tropics to your front door, this wreath would be a fun decoration for a luau or pool party too.

DIY Summer Bucket List Wreath

Make a summer bucket list wreath out of clothespins! It turns into a sunshine when you have crossed everything off your list!


Stella, my 7 year old, recently declared that this summer was going to be the "BEST summer EVER!" While that is a pretty high bar to set, we are hoping to make it a pretty great one with the help of our summer bucket list! For us, that means not scheduling much in the way of activities or camps and just enjoying our days at home with fun outings to the library, park, or museum sprinkled in. 

I combined the ideas of a summer bucket list and a clothespin wreath for this latest project for Oriental Trading. There is an activity written on each of the large clothespins, and once you complete an activity you turn it over to reveal a yellow ray of sun. By the end of the summer, the goal is to have a sun full of yellow and orange rays!
