4th of July Centerpiece – #TBCCrafters (06/27/2013) 5


I’m still on the July 4th kick – I am so proud of what our Country stands for (even if some of the government is trying to sway away from it, my family & I never will), I give thanks and hugs to all who serve our awesome Country and their families who serve at home.  Without you, our freedom would be limited.  Since I wanted to stay on the same style as last weeks blog post, I decided to make this centerpiece.  You could use it for candy, candles, or whatever you wish to put in it – even flowers.  Hope you enjoy!!

“4th of July Centerpiece” Craft
Materials Needed:
  • Wine Glass (got mine for $1 @ Dollar Tree)
  • Colored Electrical Tape
  • Star Stickers
  • Cheap Centerpiece Decor (also from Dollar Tree)
  • Glue Dots
  • Scissors
  • Something to put inside
  • & Time!!


Start by putting the star stickers in a spot on the inside of the glass (make sure the stickers you buy are the same color on both sides, so that the sticky side isn’t white, etc.)  Arrange them in any fashion you wish and however many you want.  The size of this spot will determine how much blue tape you use.

Cut your pieces of tape to be close the length you’ll need for going around the glass.  I also taped on the inside of the glass to allow for the shine to be on the outside.  Go around in stripes and add the blue in a box style behind the stars.  Overlapping a bit didn’t seem to make a difference, nothing showed through, etc., so you don’t have to be spot on in length.

This is how mine looked when I finished.  I decided to just go this far since I wanted some extra see-through space on the bottom, but you are welcome to continue and use the stripes all of the way down, your call.

Next, I disassembled the cheap little table piece that I got from Dollar Tree.  I never realized that the thing at the bottom was a piece of cement.  Weird!! 🙂

I attached the red & blue part by removing the tape to make it a larger circumference and then cut up pieces of the stars and attached them to the little gold tie piece that had been securing the paper at the bottom of that table piece.  This was just wrapped around and secured by glue dots at the top of the stem.

Now you can either insert candy, or a candle to decorate your table or wherever you wish to bring remembrance of our great Country and all of those that serve – enjoy!!

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

Easy to do, too – plus, if I get tired of it, the tape comes off easy!! 🙂
