Some 4th of July touches

I made a few fun DIY projects for Brielana's 4th of July birthday and thought I'd share a few of them before the big day!

I made this fabric banner out of tulle, burlap, denim and other ribbon, all from Michael's.  I added the wired stars by looping it around the knots and love how it turned out.

This rocket banner started life as toilet paper rolls; I just covered in scrapbook paper and taped tulle and wired stars (as smoke) to one end and added a top with twine.  This adorable craft was inspired by Andrea's banner.

I made these little flags with scrapbook paper, tulle, washi tape and 3D stickers I found at Tuesday Morning attached to skewers. I think I'll add them around the food table for some height.

And that's the sneak peek of a few of the decorations for the party.  I'll be sharing the recap of Brielana's first birthday sometime next week!

Linking up with Annie, Ashtleigh and Vanessa.
