Memorial Day brings all kinds of relaxation and reflection, as many of us take the day off and sometimes even have a little BBQ fun. Get into the spirit with these five DIY tips that will have you decorating and dressing in style.
Planning a shindig? Want to make a little party picnic for the family? Look no further than this Memorial Day set of printables. On sale for $10 (for a limited time) from Anders Ruff, this pack includes 1 sheet of party logos, 1 sheet of drink wraps, 1 sheet of blank party labels and an 8″ circular banner. Party on!
Got a wee one joining in on the festivities? Why not dress her out in her USA best with this $20 Memorial Day elastic wrap skirt from Auroras Chic Boutique. This handmade “scrap skirt” (that you could easily make yourself) is “pinked” to prevent fraying and features both fabric and tulle.
Skirts not your thing but still want something cute for your little girl? Why not try your hand at making one of these DIY Memorial Day headbands from Connor KJ. For the craft lovers with less time on their hands, order this original design for only $5.
If it’s boy stuff you’re after, how about one of these DIY berry baskets for holding food, plants or anything your little imagination can think up! From the aptly named Cute Kids Food Box, the boxes come as a set of six for $12. Just like at the local farmers market, only upcycled to holiday perfection.
Into adorning your door? Try your hand at a DIY holiday wreath, like the Memorial Day one pictured here from Land G Designs. If you’d rather buy the real thing, 16″ wreath is $32 and was made from original vintage stock.
