Festive Flag Wreath

Do you have a wreath laying around from another event?  If you don’t that’s ok the Foam Wreathinner cores can be purchased at craft stores very inexpensively and then you can wrap them in any material.  Peruse your local store for great materials.  You can even incorporate Independence Day colors into the covering of the wreath before attaching your American flags.  As a note on Mini American Flag
you can find about 3 for a $1 in the Dollar section at Target right now or you can buy 12 for $10 on Amazon!

Blue Glassware Centerpiece

A collection of Blue Bottles and Drinking Glass makes a charming 4th of July centerpiece, especially when filled with flags or red and/or white flowers, such as these peonies. Blue glasses and bottles can often be found at dollar stores like the dollar tree, or you can also use clear glasses and blue dye in your water. Just make sure you add the dye right before the event or else your flowers will begin to turn blue! You can also find them on amazon click the links in the first sentence.

Red, White, and Blue Picnic Servers

Spice up recycled containers (oatmeal containers work great) with scrapbooking paper to make easy utensil holder. Cut paper to size and use a glue stick to adhere to the outside of each cup. Scrapbooking and craft stores often carry pre-made chalkboard labels to make what you see in the image but if you don’t have the time you can always use black craft paper and a silver pen or make due with any craft paper and colored markers or leave it off all together if you’re in a real pinch!
