4th of July Crafts

Happy Thursday Friends!

One more day and it's Friday baby! I can't believe the 4th of July is tomorrow. Do you have any fun things planned? I have a gut feeling that this year will be an 4th of July weekend since a lot of people work on Fridays.

My bestie took the day off just for me. :) We are going to meet up early Friday morning for brunch, go on a quick hike to catch up and get in touch with Mother Nature, then we're getting Thai Massages. After all that, we plan on bar and restaurant hopping until it's firework time. Sausalito is centrally located so we can watch 2 sets of fireworks, fireworks in San Francisco and San Rafael.

I want to decorate the house with 4th of July themed DIY crafts, and I'm letting all of you in on my fun. 

All crafts are quick, easy, cheap, and kid/boyfriend friendly
