The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays and this year we threw a party at our home! It was so fun... but rainy! I swear we may be cursed - it poured rain on our housewarming party. Eek!
I have always seen the cutest DIY's for the 4th on Pinterest. But, we have never hosted, so I haven't gotten around to doing any of them. So, I was bound and determined to make these babies this year!
First, you have to paint them blue and red then let them dry. It took me a few hours to do this since I wanted them to have two coats. Next, you tape off the red jars with the painters tape and paint the white stripes on. It takes 2 or 3 coats of white to make it white over the red. (Or you could do it opposite and paint the jars white first with red stripes. Might be smarter....)
While you are waiting on the stripes to dry you can add the stars! Some of you may be talented enough to draw them yourself... In my case I painted felt star stickers and just stamped them on. Easy peasy!
Afterwards I added the flower lids (some call them frog tops). I added in some hydrangeas and boom - craft complete! Happy it was not a pinterest fail :)
Hope you had an awesome 4th! I have one more DIY for patriotic holidays that I will post next week!
