Barbie's 4th of July Parade!

When I was a kid, folks would decorate their bikes with streamers and balloons for the 4th of July and join the local parade. Do people do that any more? I think I even remember baby strollers being decorated... And while I know we probably won't be having parades this year, I thought I'd give a little wink and nod to what seemed like simpler times:@) Barbie, Ken, Kelly and Ruff (who has quickly become my favorite pet with the bent ears and tail) are all decked out in red, white and blue and ready to join in the fun! And, of course it's hot in July, so they are all set for a BBQ and cool dip in the pool later in the day too.

I've made Barbie size balloons from ping-pong balls before, 
this time I used mini Christmas ornaments wrapped with pipe cleaners.
The red and blue are glass, fine for pictures but plastic might be best for kids.

R,W&B fans on the spokes and sparkle tinsel on back of bike are holiday toothpicks.
You tend to accumulate such things when you have a food blog tooπŸ˜‰

 Kelly's cute dress is a 50¢ thrift store find. I handed the doll it was on back for resale, 
only wanted the red, white and blue dress😊

From all of us here at DIY Barbie Blog,
we wish you a very happy, and peaceful, 4th of July weekend-enjoy!
