TBC CRAFTER’S HOP (#TBCCRAFTERS) – 06/27/2013
“4th of July Centerpiece” Craft
- Wine Glass (got mine for $1 @ Dollar Tree)
- Colored Electrical Tape
- Star Stickers
- Cheap Centerpiece Decor (also from Dollar Tree)
- Glue Dots
- 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!!
