July 4th holds a very special place in my heart. I share the same name and birthplace with our beloved country, amERICA (get it!?). The historic city of Philadelphia hosted the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and also has stars & stripes bragging rights because of another crafty lady Betsy Ross, who stitched up our Nation’s flag there.
Celebrate Independence Day the right way and pay homage to amERICA the beautiful’s birthday with a barbecue! Think twice this year before you discard the dishes and cutlery. Round up and recycle plastic forks, napkins, a coaster, buttons and shells and declare a DIY with the help of a trusty glue gun. Secure finished embellished brooch to dresses, bags, and tops with a safety pin to sass up your style. Check out Design*Sponge for the FULL Step-by-Step tutorial
P.S.- God Bless America, and the BBQ Brooch!
