P-04packedIt’s almost Memorial Day Weekend! If you are throwing a pool party, just having a few people over for dinner, or simply spending the weekend with family, here are two super simple crafts to add a little patriotic flair to your weekend!

Using this American flag burlap, available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, or similar burlap at Walmart, simply cut into rectangles and use as a place mat. If you want to add an extra step, you can sew a red, white, or blue fabric background, or add ribbon to the edges.BurlapFlags

Another idea is to use a strip of this burlap as a decorative table runner. Add a couple of candles, or some patriotic and BOOM (think fireworks sound) – you have added patriotic flair!
