I really can’t believe how fast the summer is going. Since it’s already nearing the end of August, that means Labor Day is quickly approaching.
This year, Labor Day is Sept. 6. In case you’re counting, that’s only 19 days away! Since Labor Day is meant to appreciate American workers, there’s no excuse not to celebrate.
In honor of Labor Day, here are some great patriotic crafts that will help with the festivities.
The first thing you have to worry about decorating for the celebration, is the table. Chances are you’re planning to have a few people over for a meal. In this case, it’s nice to have a little patriotic decor. This holiday centerpiece is a great way to bring some red, white and blue onto the table without being over the top.
For the Grill
If you’re like my family, you’re planning a huge cook-out in the backyard. Weather permitting, the family grill usually receives a lot of love on Labor Day. Naturally, you’ll need a few things to help prepare that delicious Labor Day meal (besides the hot dogs).
To start, crochet some easy pot holders so you can handle hot dishes and pot handles with ease. Here’s one of my favorite patterns:
If you’re the lucky enough to be the chef for the big day, you can’t go wrong with this patriotic apron. Once Labor Day passes, save the apron for next year or for the Fourth of July!
Now that you’ve got your apron, you need the proper grilling tools. These Beaded Barbeque Skewers are perfect for a Labor Day celebration. They not only look festive, but they’ll also help keep your shish kabobs together. Yummy!
For the Yard/House
No matter if your celebration is taking place indoors or outside on a patio, it’s nice to have some lights up for decoration. These lights are super easy to make and turn any room or yard into the perfect party space.
Now, the most important step – have fun! What are you doing to celebrate Labor Day this year?
