Life is beyond crazy at my house house right now, but I'm looking forward to a short break for the fabulous 4th of July holiday. I apologize there haven't been many true tutorials or even crafty ideas here lately (more on that soon), but here's a quick and easy one for your 4th of July festivities in case your life's a little crazy right now, too!
Festive Fourth Flag Centerpieces
*Plastic pop corn containers (these are from the Dollar Tree--yep, only $1 a piece!)
*Small decorative American flags (try the dollar store or a party store, or even Michael's)
*Used newsprint or printer paper
*Crinkle cut shredded paper (like you'd use in gift wrapping--try making your own to save $$)
1. Start with your plastic pop corn containers. Don't you love these little cups? Just the right colors and what's more American than pop corn? And only $1! Wad up some newsprint or thin copy paper and stuff in the bottom of the pop corn cup. This will hold your flags. Use a knife to poke three holes in the paper ball for the flags to stick in (way easier than trying to poke the holes with the flags themselves, trust us!).
2. Insert three flags into the holes you made and arrange them so they are well-spaced.
3. Fill the rest of the pop corn container up with red and blue crinkled paper shreds, letting a few hang over the edges.
That's it! These make great centerpieces you can use year after year at a super affordable price, plus you can use the pop corn containers for, well, pop corn the rest of the year! Happy birthday, USA!
