I think this is the first time I've
ever decorated specifically for
the 4th of July.
And it was FUUUUUUNNNNN!
And who's taking center stage?
Barbie, of all things!
Never in a million years did I
ever think I'd decorate with Barbie dolls!
Just last week I found these at a
community flea, marked $3.00 each.
I added the flags to make them
look like they're celebrating.
She's technically a pilgrim, but
the red and white clothing
lets her fit right in.
I filled this huge glass jar with
vintage Christmas lights.
I found the cutest little patriotic girl
images on old cards that I made
into paper dolls. I printed them out
on a full sheet of paper and matted
them onto thick card stock. Then I glued
some sparklies to the top of her hat. To
keep her from falling over, I hot glued
an old block to the back.
Same was done for this doll.
Do you see how I also got to
use my firecrackers?!
Looks like the flags are going to
catch fire, doesn't it? Faux candles fix
It was such fun decorating that
I ordered a white table-top Christmas
tree to decorate in red, white, and blue.
The kids are so excited for it to
come in. Half the fun will be hunting around
the house and in all our Christmas boxes to find
just the right ornaments to turn the Christmas tree
into a 4th of July tree!
Until next time!
