DIY Wooden Firecrackers: Summer Front Porch Decorating

By | 4th of July, Crafts, Decorating, DIY Projects, Home DIY, Home Page Categories | 49 Comments

Many moons ago, we purchased a set of wooden firecrackers that I have been using for my 4th of July Decorating ever since. Even though the original set of Wooden Firecrackers had been repainted, it was time to give me a fresh look again.

But this time, we decided it would be fun to share the instructions with you so you can make your own. And since it was time to do a little Summer Front Porch Decorating, it was perfect timing. Read More

Patriotic Bandana Banner

By | 4th of July, Crafts, DIY Projects, Holidays, Home page - Slider | 6 Comments

We continue our fun ideas for the Fourth of July today with this easy to make Patriotic Bandana Banner. Red, White and Blue Bandanas and rope combine to make a fun decoration for your Fourth of July Celebration or even your kiddos Cowboy or Cowgirl Themed Birthday Party.

You can put together this cute Banner in about 15 minutes, use it for your next party or even as a holiday decoration.

Let’s get started…

I found everything I needed at Walmart.

Patriotic Bandana Banner Supplies:

  • Bandanas in red, white & blue {found near the purses and accessories or in the men’s apparel}
  • Rope or you could use ribbon or twine – we used 1/4 inch Twisted Sisal Rope found in hardware department
  • Sewing machine or you can use fabric glue if you don’t have a machine
  • Cutting mat and rotary cutter or scissors

Step 1:

  • Iron the bandana to remove wrinkles. Fold in a corner to the center to form a triangle, size will depend on the bandana and how large you want them. Add an inch to the long side and cut with a rotary cutter. After you have cut one, use it for a pattern. Cut remaining bandanas.

Step 2:

  • Fold over 1 inch and iron seam. There will be a little tail sticking out {like the red bandana}, cut it off even {like the white}

Step 3:

  • Sew the seam closed

After the seams are done, simply run the rope through and you are ready to decorate with your Patriotic Bandana Banner.

Fourth of July Mantle

By | 4th of July, Decorating, Holidays | 20 Comments

I’m kicking off this VERY special week I have planned for you, with my Fourth of July Mantle! You all know how I LOVE the holidays, and Fourth of July is one of favorites, maybe even second to Christmas!

I’ve created another fun collage to show you just how easy it is to decorate your Mantle or shelf for Fourth of July.

  1. I started with a piece of fabric with flags on it
  2. I made the garland from scrapbook paper, and assembled it just like I did the St. Patrick’s Day Garland and Valentine’s Garland
  3. On one end I added a wooden flag
  4. And on the other end, I added a fun red, white and blue birdhouse
  5. In the garage, I found a VERY old Colonial Flag Banner, with 13 stars representing the colonies. I draped it over the wooden flag and birdhouse.
  6. Next came my Great-Grandfathers Flag
  7. A little angel doll, made with red, white and blue fabric, with cute wire hair
  8. Then some fabric covered styro-balls
  9. And an USA wooden piece

Stay tuned for an awesome week here at Hoosier Homemade! Tomorrow kicks off Day 1 of a full week of Food for the Fourth of July! Main dishes, side dishes, salads, drinks and of course…lot and lots of desserts! Maybe even a tablespace or two!
