I usually start decorating around Memorial Day and don't take it down till Labor day! These are a few of the projects I have made over the years. My Banner I made 4 years ago, still using it but it is a little faded! Then I made some cool Flag Art. That is up all year!
Here is a pic from years past!
Thrifty Vintage Kitchen. I believe she used them as decorations at her wedding! How fun is that!
So I took that idea and ran with it. I wanted mine to hang, so here is what I did.
These are the supplies you will need:
mason jar, I used different sizes and colors
twine/rope, you can use what you have around the house, that is what I did! Used 2 different kinds.
flags, I got mine in a 3 pack from Target dollar section!
sand, didn't know it was so hard to find a small bag of sand!
I first used rope/twine to wrap around the lip of the jar 4 or five times, then tie it off tight!
Then I got out my package of flags. They are just attached to the stick with a staple, so you can easily get it off. Now you can tea stain if you want or just leave as is. I left as is. Here is a pic of the package.
Then you just add some sand to weight it down and push in a votive!
This is a close up of the 1776 with the liberty bell underneath!
I love how they turned out. Will just check the knots from time to time to make sure they are still tight! Can't wait to use them for our annual summer soiree!
Hope you like my patriotic lantern!
Have a great week.
