Land That We Love: 12 Patriotic Party DIYs


Now that summer is officially here, we can't wait to dive in! Next up? A 4th of July Party! We've rounded up 12 of the best DIY ideas to help make your event summer's biggest blockbuster, starting with this cool recycled flag made from  pallet wood (above)! 

Next, we're loving the rustic look of bushel barrels, especially when paired with festive stripes! These are perfect for light snacks like potato chips, pretzels or popcorn.
