Easy 4th of July Craft {Paint Sample American Flag}




Visit thecsiproject.com
This craft could not be easier! It took me longer to write the tutorial than to do the actual project! It is great for kids too!

Here is what you will need:
Large Paint sample with reds
small single blue paint sample.
glue
scissors
Optional: Sewing machine

1. Cut your blue paint sample a little smaller to make a rectangle shape for the flag. I rounded my edges to keep it similar to the big red paint sample.

2. Glue it to the corner

Optional:
3. Sew around the edge with a zig zag stitch.



Here are some possible uses for your cute new flag!

The Scrappy Braided Headband- {Made from Sheets!}

Here is my craft using Sheets! The Iron Crafter is going on RIGHT now and the secret ingredient is sheets and pillowcases! Hope on over and enter your projects that you made using sheets and pillow cases! (Don't worry I am not entering my own contest!)

I got this idea from these headbands I saw on Homemade by Jill.

Here is what you need:
Sheet or scrap fabric
Ribbon
elastic (I used and old elastic headband)

1. cut or rip your sheet into strips and cut 3 strips of your ribbon.
(I cut mine to be about 32 inches long)

3. Pin 3 strand together and pin to your pant leg. (Remember when you made friendship bracelets! or am I the only one who did that?) I pined two pieces of fabric with one piece of ribbon.

4. Start braiding

Continue braiding until it is long enough to fit about 3/4th of the way around your head. From just below the ear to just below the ear of the other side. My finished braid was about 13.5 inches.

5. Repeat with other fabric strip and ribbon. On this one I used 2 ribbons and one fabric strip.

6. Sew both your braids together at each end. Go back and forth a bunch of times!

7. Cut off the excess fabric and ribbon at the end

8. Cut a piece of elastic to finish the headband. I measured around the back of my head. I cut mine to be about 4 inches.

9. Sew the elastic to each side of the head band.
Optional embellishing!
10. Grab some cute buttons

11. Hand sew them to your head band

Cute cute cute cute!

I love that I now have a way to make my mommy pony tail look much cuter!
