Saluting summertime with a collection of 13 patriotic crafts

I cannot believe that Memorial Day, and the unofficial start of summer, is less than a week away. (Of course, if you’re Canadian, you’re a week ahead of us.) To celebrate, I’m sharing a collection of red, white and blue patriotic crafts. If you’re looking for a new wreath, a centerpiece idea, or easy, DIY patriotic décor, these 13 summertime crafts from past years on Crafts ‘n Coffee have you covered.
