You may have noticed the centerpiece in my patriotic star applique placemat post. It's an easy one to do. All you need is some mason jars or jars of any kind. These are probably empty pickle or spaghetti jars. In addition to the jars you need:
- sand ( I used the decorative kind from Michael's)
- acrylic jewel accent stones ( Michael's) (These have been used in Christmas and Valentine's decor so they were worth the investment.)
- candles- I'm using led tealights
- mini flags
- mini star wired garland
Fill jars partly with sand and top with jewel stones. Wrap star garland around your dowel. Stick dowel and flag in jar.
The third jar was made with tissue paper and Mod Podge. Apply strips of paper to the inside of jar. Add a flag and a candle. This looks cool lit up.
I told you it was easy! What easy and quick centerpiece ideas do you have? I'd love to hear about them in the comments.
