No Sewing Needed for Bandanna Table Runner

We're still going strong with the patriotic summer makeovers--there are just so many great ones to choose from! Today's rescue comes from Jamie at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom, who realized recently that with company coming over she probably ought to change out her Easter decor "to something more appropriate for Summer and the upcoming holidays." Some leftover bandannas from a previous project fit the bill!

Rag Ribbon Garland for Summer Holidays

Michele blogs at The Scrap Shoppe, and she has a great no-sew way to use up some of the fabric scraps in your stash! Michele loves summer decorating, and keeps her stuff up "from Memorial Day to Labor Day." Her red white & blue rag ribbon garland definitely has me feeling patriotic, but I'm also thinking about other color combinations that would look great throughout the year!

Red White & Blue Colored Rice Jars

I will never get tired of seeing new mason jar ideas! This one came from Cheryl at Tidy Mom. She is using colored rice and candles to add patriotic flair to this season's get-togethers. Cheryl says, "I love how simple and pretty they look during the day and even better when glowing on a summer night at dusk." I bet you probably already have all the ingredients for this super-quick decoration!

Patriotic Window Shutter

Kim tells us, "I have had three old shutters hanging out in my "junk" pile in my garage for the past 2 years." She recently upgraded one of those plain shutters into a piece of flag wall art, just in time for Memorial Day and the 4th of July. The two-year wait was well worth it, as you can see at her blog Too Much Time on My Hands.
