12 Crafts and Recipes to Make for July 4th and Creative Showcase

I can't believe it is June already, summer is here. Ice cream, evening walks and most of all the 4th of July. Independence Day is hands down my favorite holiday. We go all out every year with parades, fireworks and BBQs. I always look forward to it. Here are a few of my favorite ideas for the 4th of July this year.
I am in love with these No-Sew Flag shirts from Our Good Family. Growing up we always bought flag shirts every year, I have been trying to make them for my daughter instead and I love this one!
 It is always fun to take a few firework pictures ever year, this post about How to Take Firework Pictures, will make sure you capture some great ones.
 I love to have a few little crafts for my 4-year-old to make for each holiday and these Confetti Popper Rockets from Alpha Mom are perfect for that.
These Snap, Crackle and Pop Rock Cookies from Cake Spy are so festive and perfect for the holiday!
 This American Pin Wheel Wreath is one of my favorite crafts that I have ever made. I left it in Texas when we moved to Utah and I am still sad about it. I keep considering remaking it.
 I love this Independence Punch from Big Bear's Wife. I think it is a must for our 4th of July this year.
 This Glittered USA Sign from Eighteen25 is all sorts of fabulous. I am adding to the list of decorations to make this year.
 I have loved this Burlap and Doily Flag from At Second Street for years. I will make it eventually, maybe this is the year.
These 4th of July Sparkle Pops from 24/7 Moms are so easy. Perfect for a last minute party. 
This Felt Star Spangled Wreath currently hangs on my front door. I absolutely love it. Perfect for a little patriotic spirit.
 Oreos are a favorite treat in our house, even better cover them in chocolate and sprinkles and we can't get enough. These Patriotic Oreo Pops from Makoodle are fabulous!
These Popsicle Stick Flags from Ginger Snap Crafts are another craft that is perfect for the kids!
