Canada Day Crafts! | Canada Day Wreath | There for the Making

Canada Day Crafts | DIY Canada Day Wreath in Red and White | There for the Making | The Zero-Dollar DIY Challenge

Who here loves a good craft? *raises own hand* Who here loves a good craft that celebrates your national holiday? *raises both hands* Who here loves a good craft that celebrates your national holiday and costs ZERO DOLLARS? *raises both hands and feet* For the June edition of There for the Making – the Zero-Dollar DIY Challenge, I used items I already had in my craft stash to create a simple, cheerful Canada Day wreath in red and white for our front door. I remember making Canada Day crafts back when I was little (crafting has always been a part of my life), so I feel like I’m getting in touch with my roots with this project.

In case you’ve missed the memo (or if you lives elsewhere than Canada!), we’re celebrating our country’s 150th birthday on July 1st! Naturally, this is a cause for much hoopla and general celebration, and it means that the July 1st excitement is getting extended ALL YEAR! I thought it would be nice to display our Canadian pride with a fun, whimsical wreath.

No-Glue Red, White, and Blue Wreath | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #5

For the fifth post in the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop, The No Pressure Life has put together a tutorial for a no-glue (!) patriotic red, white, and blue wreath. This is perfect for my American readers as the 4th of July approaches. If you hail from elsewhere, you can always change this up to suit your national holiday colours. I could see myself doing something like this in red and white for Canada Day!

[In fact, I may or may not have a Canada Day-themed wreath coming your way in the near future. *wink wink* And don’t forget to stop by today’s Canada Day Flourish & Knot post!

DIY Patriotic Banner | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #3

I hope you enjoyed last week’s first two posts in the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop series! Leslie’s charming summer party printables are on my to-print list, and Hey Fitzy’s crunchy granola recipe may just get a try in this house. Today we’re back, and Dazzle While Frazzled is sharing a simple DIY patriotic banner that my American readers will be sure to love for their upcoming Fourth of July parties! Never fear if you are a reader from elsewhere, because this idea could definitely be used for ANY national holiday by switching up the colours. 🙂 (I may just snag it for our big Canada 150 celebrations this July!)

DIY Patriotic Banner

I have to apologize for the lack of an official Flourish & Knot post last week: I was running like a chicken with my head cut off (there’s an image for you…) helping to get everything ready for my friend’s wedding. Well, it was all worth it because the wedding went beautifully and it was a marvellous weekend. I’ll have a new project for you later this week, once I’ve gotten some sleep! 😉
