Dollar Tree Cutting Board Craft: S’mores Tote

This was a fun project just in time for the Fourth of July! It’s fast, easy and cheap.

Supplies list:

  • Two Plastic Cutting Boards from Dollar Tree, the kind with the holes on top
  • One Wooden Crate. I got this one at Walmart in the floral section but you can get them at Michaels, Hobby Lobby or sometimes Dollar Tree has them
  • One Dowel Rod that fits through the cutting board holes. I found at Walmart in the craft section.
  • Glue
  • Paint if desired

I painted the crate with chalk paint. I used Aleen’s tacky glue to attach the cutting boards to the crates. I also used hot glue for an immediate hold.

I made vinyl stickers on my Cricut, marshmallows and a bonfire and stuck them on the sides of the cutting board. I also used my cricut for the word “S’mores” and applied it to both sides of the crate

I added the dowel rod and of course the goodies. This will look great on the counter at the lake. Just grab and take out to the fire. Happy 4th!

Fourth of July Porch Sign Flag Stars and Stripes

I just got a cricut and I am so addicted! I made this porch sign today. I used acrylic paint from Walmart, the 2oz bottles, a four foot board, some wood stain to antique it a bit, and rope.

I painted the flag, taping off areas so I could get the lines. I didn’t want it perfect but still used tape as my guideline. I made a stencil with my cricut of the stars and painted them on. After the paint dried, I rubbed the stain on in various places then used sandpaper to distress it some. I made the vinyl decal and stuck it on last. I hot glued the rope.

I did this in just a couple of hours. It was a fun project! I can post cricut instructionals if anyone is interested.

Fourth of July Flag Snack Tray

July 4th is one of my favorite summer holiday’s. We like to spend it up at the lake. We usually have family up and we like to snack! I like to have lots of different finger foods that are easy to serve up. This is one I plan on making this year. It’s easy and for the most part, healthy and it’s patriotic. I will make a bigger one for the fourth, this is just a sample one. Just rinse the fruit and form them in the shape of a flag on a tray. This will look so good on the table this year!
