Traffic Jam Weekend

It’s Thursday which means it is time for Traffic Jam Weekend link party. On this weekend link party you can share your old and new posts on any family friendly topics. I am so glad you’re back, because you are going to find so much to enjoy and to spark your creativity. Like crafts, DIYs, home decor, recipes, gardening, family ideas, money saving tips, summer decor, life hacks, tips, fashion, and so much more!

Before we get to the party I’d like to share a post from my site this past week. In it I have given a tutorial to create a patriotic star wreath using Dollar Tree items. I used metal star wreath forms and red, white, and blue bandanas in different patterns. They turned out so adorable, and they were SO easy to make. Not only that, but so budget-friendly. The bandanas come in a two pack, so you can make one wreath for $1.50 and two for $3! How great is that?! The only things you need at home are scissors and glue. If you have to buy both of those, you can still make a wreath for $3.50!
