bakers royale july 4th diy

Fourth of July is just around the corner and “Blogland” is completely full of fun creative DIY projects to make your 4th extra special. I’ve been noticing so many fun projects that I just had to share with you some of my favorites…

The tutorial also includes matchbox covers and drinking straw decorations. Click here to read the full instructions and to download the PDF to create your own!

Naomi from Bakers Royale takes the concept of fruit skewers to a whole new level with these super innovative fruit pops. Who knew watermelon, apples, and blueberries could be so adorable? Click here for a full rundown of tips on how to make your own.

Who said entertaining had to be hard? You can whip up a 4th of July party in 20 minutes flat. Yeah, it’s true. Check out this post from Dream Green DIY (guest posting on NoBiggie) on how to put together an easy 4th of July shindig without the fuss.

Speaking of super easy… easy can be chic! For instance, these dessert decorations from Style Me Pretty. You could even use them on store bought cupcakes to give them that homemade-yeah-I-totally-made-those-myself look. Click here for the full (crazy easy) tutorial!

If you are looking to go all out this year, Anders Ruff has got you covered! Their 4th of July Pinwheels party is out of this world! It’s chic, modern, fun, and adorable all at the same time. I for real can’t get enough of it. All of their downloads for the entire party are available (for $15) in their Etsy shop here. For more photos, check out their blog here.

I hope this 4th of July round up gives you some inspiration of your 4th get-togethers this year! What are your plans? Are you hosting or going to someone else’s for the festivities?

    Going to the lake with our family. Making red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing and topping with blueberries. Then sticking flagged toothpicks in the top. I love your ideas too. I think I’m going to add t your drinking straw suggestion to our shindig! My family will love it! Happy 4th of July!

    We’re going to our county July 4th parade. It’s real short and sweet but my sister and brother-in-law are going to be in it:).

    Last year I made a July 4th cake. I decorated it with blueberries and strawberries to look like a flag. The hardest part was decorating it so I had 13 strips to represent the 13 colonies (7 red strips and 6 white.) 7 rows of strawberries takes up a lot of space!! Ended up having to cut the strawberries to fit. It was either cut the strawberries or knock off a couple of colonies. Looked great and the fam loved it:)
