4th of July Craft Ideas

Just in time for the 4th of July! These easy holiday craft ideas for  firecracker candles are perfect for that BBQ.  I’ve been a little nuts over the mod podge lately………but dang!  It’s so easy!  I love the trash can I made for my craft room using fabric scraps and love love love my tray I made with my vintage maps.

I think using several of these candles down the center of a long table would be beautiful.  And festive! This would be an easy way to add 4th of July themed decor quickly.

I picked up the tall candles, ribbon and napkins from The Dollar Tree.

Patriotic Crafts

Once home I used the regular formula of Mod Podge for two of them and the Sparkle Mod Podge for one. The sparkle mod podge is more patriotic!  I cut the napkin to size, slathered the mod podge onto my glass candle, wrapped the napkin around and slathered on more mod podge.  Or I used the wide ribbon. I love how they turned out! I love how the glow from the candle bounces through the blue napkin. These would also go well with the Red White and Blue colored rice candles I did for Memorial Day.

This project took me about 15 minutes, not including drying time.  One thing to keep in mind however, take the labels off your candles………..because the paper or ribbon will be somewhat transparent.  No judging.

Enjoy!
