4th of July Fun, Sweets & Style

The 4th of July is one of my favorite summer holidays!  Our family gets together every 4th of July up at my parents house and spends an entire weekend eating, drinking, boating, and swimming in the lake.  Darby, Tori & I wanted to share a fun post of ideas to celebrate the holiday.  Read through to find out details on our 4th of July in-store sale!

Tori wanted to share a fun red,white, & blue cupcake recipe. I personally tried one of the cupcakes and I swear they were so tasty!

I decided to try this fun baking idea for the 4th of July. Its a great idea if you’re hosting or attending a party. Everyone will love these festive cupcakes.

Ingredients:

  • Red velvet cake mix
  • Cream Cheese Icing
  • Red and white Candy Pearls
  • Blue and red sprinkles
  • Cup cake liners

Follow the directions on the cake mix to make the cupcakes. After they are cooked let them cool for about 15 minutes. Than spread the frosting and design them using the pearls and sprinkles. Super easy and they taste great.

I chose to make a fun and easy t-shirt with a design that looks like fireworks for the 4th of July! It is super easy and fun for the kids to make as well.

What you need:

  • a white or light colored t-shirt
  • rubbing alcohol
  • sharpies
  • and a spray bottle (from the $1 store works just fine)

Step 1: Lay the t-shirt flat on a table and put dots in any shape you would like in any place on the t-shirt. You can do it on the whole shirt or in just some spots. I only put them in certain spots on the t-shirt.

Step 2: After you finish putting the Sharpie on the t-shirt take it outside and lay it on the ground. If you don’t want the sharpie bleeding through to the other side of the shirt I would put a couple pieces of cardboard in between the front and back of the shirt. Put the rubbing alcohol in the spray bottle and spray it as a mist onto the shirt. The more you spray the more it will run. Spray a little and watch it to see it run and spray more if desired.

After that let it dry and there you have got it! A fun and easy 4th of July craft that an age can do.

We chose maxi dresses because they are so easy to throw on! The maxis are lightweight and perfect for a hot summer day.  If it’s a cooler day (which can totally happen in Michigan) throw on a denim jacket and a scarf to warm up. Lastly, we chose our new navy and red tank.  We threw it with white capri leggings but can easily pair with shorts or jeans!
