July 4 Centerpiece

Hi people :-)!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I spent part of it inside because the rain just would not go away, but managed to work on a few things.  I’ll share some of that later this week.

Today was all about helping my son get his new computer up and running, buying new Samsung Galaxy 3 phones and creating a table centerpiece to celebrate July 4.

DIY Centerpiece

I really did this on the cheap.  Most of it was already in my crap craft closet except for the floral picks and headbands.

You’ll also need some spray adhesive, spray paint and floral foam.  I used a green square floral foam and used a serrated knife to cut and round the edges so it would fit in the silver tin bucket.  Then I used the spray adhesive to glue the red shredded paper to the foam base.  I sprayed the branches with Rust Oleum paint; gloss white, gloss blue and apple red.  I basically crammed the branches once they were dry into the foam and then added the pics and star garland.  I slipped the headbands around the silver bucket leaving some of the tin color in between.  There you have it, quick and simple.  The tablecloth is actually a small quilted throw and the side you see is the liner.  Someone made it for me years ago.  Here’s a few more pics.
