Fourth of July Candle Jars

Sometimes simple is best! We just used a few simple things from around the house to make a festive, yet not overly in your face coffee table Fourth of July display. Sometimes simple really is best!    

  We used some recycled pickle and pepper jars that we filled halfway up with brown rice. 

 We added a flame less votive candle inside the jar
We wrapped the top of the jar with Fourth of July wired garland and sparkle pipe cleaners

Hope you are inspired to use some of the everyday items around your house to create something fabulous!
Remember, keep it Homespun!

A mans riches may ransom his life,
but a poor man hears no threat.

  3. Adorable! I'm having a Red, White and Blue Linky Party today and I'd love for you to come join in on the fun!

  4. I have to ask you a question about these. I made these for my deck recently and used white rice and teal candles as my jars were the antique blue mason jars. My candles melted all the way down in to the rice and looked horrible. Did I use the wrong type of candle, should it have been drippless?

  5. Thank you so much for linking up to my Red, White and Blue Linky Party!

  6. Simple, festive and sweet! Perfect. Thanks for linking up at my Red, White, Blue & You Link Party!
