Celebrate Independence Day with this Fourth of July DIY that gives a festive look to your home and/or party.
If you are in an entertaining or festive mood this Fourth of July, then I have a fun repurposed mason jar DIY that might be right up your alley. In just a few minutes, you can transform a plain jar into a centerpiece for your holiday soiree, or for a decorative effect around your home or office. My Fourth of July DIY packs a lot of punch visually, but isn’t hard or time consuming, giving you time to enjoy your Independence Day and what it represents.
I LOVE using mason jars for my DIY’s because most of us have them around the house and there’s so much you can do with them. I’ve been using and repurposing the same mason jars for about two years for almost all of the holidays and seasons, but this DIY just may be my favorite.
All you need is the following to complete my Fourth of July DIY:
- medium to large sized mason jars (at least 2 or more)
- patriotic ribbon
- glue gun
- foam stars
- plastic flowers
- patriotic windmills
- any other themed item that would look Fourth of July-esque that can fit in the jar
Take the patriotic ribbon and measure the mason jar. Cut the ribbon and then secure with a hot glue gun. Let the ribbon cool and set for 10-15 minutes.
Once dry, add your items to the jar. I decided on foam stars for the base, windmills, plastic flowers, and a few other adornments—all of which can be found at Michaels, your favorite craft store, or even the dollar store.
The craft takes a total of 20 minutes or less to complete.
You can then place your Fourth of July DIY Decor and Centerpiece Jars around your home, entertaining area, or even your workspace or office. They especially look good on your mantle or dining room table.
