4th of July Candle Holders

I’ve been seeing these twine wrapped glass vases everywhere recently. They’re pretty cute, but not cheap. So I thought for some 4th of July fun I would try to create some on my own!

  • (3) glass vases ($1 each from local thrift store or Dollar General)
  • Jute ($2.33 from Hobby Lobby or similar)
  • Red, white and blue sparkle ornaments from Michaels ($4.99, scored for 50% off)
  • Hot glue gun

And then the final piece looks like this…

4th of July Bunting Banner + Blog Hop

I feel like the summer holidays sneak upon us, probably because we’re busy with vacations, ball games, swimming, and keeping the kids corralled during school break.

Well I thought this year I would get ahead of the game a bit and make a fun little bunting banner for the Fourth of July!

And it’s super simple. Just print, trim, and string together.
Or you can use clothespins to attach to twine.
