BFF Open House Link Party #60 Wrap Up and Features: Festive Fourth Edition!

Thanks everyone for another great BFF Open House. As always, there was no shortage of creativity and fabulous ideas. Since we are celebrating Fourth of July this week in the US, I’m featuring some of the great Fourth inspired ideas that were shared.

Malia, from Yesterday on Tuesday shared a fantastic collection of printables you can use to whip up some d├ęcor for the 4th:

Wreaths are a wonderful way to decorate and I have two really cute ones to share. The first from The Freckled Optimist:

I just love those letters! And the second is from Mel, The Crafty Scientist that is part of her interchangeable wreath series and can be updated for other holidays:

Transform a plain dimensional star with Mod Podge and scrapbook paper. Visit A Creative Princess to see how:

If you want to wear your festive Fourth colors, pop over to see Ellen at Creative Passage for this crocheted wire and bead bracelet!


Of course you know I have to feature something chocolate, so I think these Drumstick cupcakes from White Lights on Wednesday are an ingenious interpretation of the iconic ice cream treat, perfect for a 4th of July barbecue:

As always, thanks for choosing to share your creativity here each week!
