23 unique flag crafts

The 4th of July might be my favorite holiday of the year!  It’s low key, no presents involved, friends and family are all welcome. It’s just fun, sun, fireworks, water, and delicious BBQ all in one. What’s not to love?  Not to mention, we’re celebrating the anniversary of our awesome country. (Here are 3 free 4th of July printables here: Be braveLand of the free, and our Preamble!) Here are 23 unique flag crafts to get you ready for our Independence Day!

Happy song printable

Note: Max and I are on our way to Alt Summit today in Salt Lake City! Wish me luck on the airplane with baby boy alone! For way too many pictures, follow along on C.R.A.F.T. facebook or instagram

Andy and I first heard the happy song a few months before Maxwell was born. We declared this his theme song!  Then, on the crazy long (ok fine, 12 minute) car ride from our house to the birthing center the morning Max was born, this song was on the radio. I was in some crazy pain, but I was smiling on the inside listening to the happy song knowing I would get to meet baby boy soon! Anyhow, I whipped up this printable days before Max was born (Yes, this post is long over due!) so that it would be waiting for him in his nursery gallery wall when we came home. (Here’s our crazy birth story.) I plan on changing the clipboard art often and eventually, one day, this will be a place for Max to display his own art!

Here is the happy song quote in its home on the gallery wall! Oh and after I made the printable, I realized the quote is actually “Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth”. Oopsie. Does anyone else make up their own words to songs? I’ m notorious for this! Oh and here’s the tutorial for the hello world burlap art.

Anyone else love the happy song? Or make up words to song a regular basis? I’d love to hear…

Jazzing up the pie safe {with Fabric Loft}

Note: This post is sponsored by Fabric Editions, but as usual all opinions are my own.

I scored this pie safe on Craigslist for $200 about a year ago. (FYI: It’s called a pie safe because it has lots of little holes in the sides to let the pies cool!)  I’ve been resisting the urge to paint it because a little natural wood is nice, but it clearly needs some sprucing up. I added fun knobs awhile back, but it’s been begging for a little makeover well, since it arrived in our house! Before I show you what I did, I must share some breaking news: Target sells fabric. Yep. True! And it’s cute and comes in pre cut pieces. (See if you’re Target sales Fabric Loft fabric here.)

Let me just show you what I was working with:

And let’s get right to the good stuff, here’s the after:

It’s a super easy DIY… here are the 2 secret ingredients (besides the cute fabric from Target):

Fabric Loft at Target

All you do, is cut the piece of fabric to fit the back of your cabinet. Then iron the sides down and use thumb tacks around the edges to tack it to the back of the cabinet. How easy is that? I have a 4 week old, y’all! My craft time just taken over by baby cuddles, poop, and milk! See, the thumb tacks at the top? It’s that easy. When the doors are closed you can’t see them at all.

Oh and see my cute frame that says “J+A= M”? I used some cute Fabric Editions fabric from Target for that too. Another e.a.s.y. craft. I took the glass out of an old frame and wrapped the fabric around the back of the frame. Then used felt to cut out a heart and a few letters and glued them down. So stinkin’ easy. I also just realized that our initials spell JAM and that those are the first 3 letters of my name!

And here’s a close up of the cute frame:

Have you seen the fun fabric at Target yet? Here are a few of my fave patterns and colors. I’ve got a little craft brewing for Maxwell’s nursery with all of the cute black and white goodies! (See all of the fun patterns here.)

And here’s one more good ol’ before and after of this super easy craft!
