Though summer officially began last week, it’s always the 4th of July that feels like the real seasonal kick-off. While we love going to block parties or taking a trip to the beach on this holiday, there’s also much to be said for having a low-key picnic under the stars and watching fireworks! In collaboration with Target, we came up with a few easy DIYs using products from the retailer to add a little something extra to your Independence Day picnic this year. Read on and see how to make embellished cloth napkins, gilded plastic flatware and pom-pom seat cushions!
