I just made quick, easy and inexpensive centerpieces by using 4th of July print fabric, wrapping/gluing
(tacky glue) it around 3 different sized cardboard tubes (toilette/paper towel).
After fabric is glued, cut a circle (from flat cardboard), insert gold glittery pipe cleaner into circle and fit circle into
fabric-covered tube (so they look like firecrackers).
Then take red, white and blue ribbon and tie all three together (I also stapled them for stability)! They look pretty nifty!

Subject: Anyone decorate for Independence Day?

Hi all!
I love my red, white, and blue and I'm looking for some crafty ideas for decorations since there just aren't that many available these days. I made flower pots by taking wooden pots and painting red and white stripes on them.
I glued wooden stars painted blue on them as well. They look cute.
I also made some refridgerator magnets out of polymer clay to look like flags.
Of couse, I also made throw pillows and curtains with the same theme. Does anyone have any more ideas? Thanks!

How about placemats & napkins, table runners, wood flowers on a dowel for centerpiece or picnic table decorations painted accordingly - or vases painted with fresh flowers in them.

Do you have party hats? Could make several different kinds from the forefathers tri-corner hats, helmets, fur caps, sailor hats, etc., for all to wear, or just for display on a hatrack. Might even have a redcoat and a jerkin hanging with them. Hey, don't forget the sailor's middy!

Think I'm getting carried away with the historical theme, so will quit with one more: Giant tea bags as a reminder of that perverbial straw!!!

Enjoy, :-))

There is a store in our mall that always has the neatest handicrafted decorations.
They had a flower pot painted similar to the one listed above.
Then in it they had a flag--about 2 feet tall that had been tea-dyed to look old.
Around the flag they tied raffia in red,natural, and blue. It was so cute.
The Dollar Tree in our mall has flags of these size--I am going to go get some tomorrow and make some.
