The Army celebrates its 239th birthday today. There are lots of ways to celebrate our soldiers - we have 480,000+ on active duty around the world. Make a camouflage tote, camo toys or even camo cupcakes - and some of these camo crafts would make a great Father's Day gift, too. So take some time today to tell people in uniform that you support them and their family.

BDU Shirt Purses

No need to tie a yellow ribbon around the old oak tree - military spouses, family and friends can proudly proclaim their support by carrying this camo purse made by Army wife Melissa.

It's hard for kids to say goodbye when Mom or Dad is deployed. But you can turn an old battle dress uniform (BDU) shirt into a cuddly friend for the kiddos to love until their soldier comes home safe and sound.

Camouflage Cupcake Sandwiches

Whip up these treats and watch them disappear! Debbie from Life is Sweets baked these camouflage cupcake sandwiches for her sister's boyfriend who serves in the Guard and is going overseas for a year.  

Camo Play Barricade

Blogger Midwest Moma rescued these boxes headed for the dumpster and sprayed them camo-style for her son's Nerf Gun War Birthday Party. They make great barricades for little kids and those young of heart to run, hide and shoot with their Nerf guns. What a great way to recycle and create a playland for a few hours.

Jen Eskridge, author of Deploy that Fabric: 23 Sewing Projects that use Military Uniforms in Everyday Life, sells lots of great patterns to turn BDUs into purses, tote bags and quilts.

Stacy Risenmay from Not Just a Housewife crafted these cute camo and flag bracelets from polymer clay. Wear them in remembrance of the soldiers you love.
