Can you believe that the 4th of July is just around the corner?  After what seemed like the longest winter ever here in Connecticut, spring made a quick appearance and now summer is right around the corner!

Before the 4th of July, I like to add a few patriotic touches to our porch.  You can read about how my porch went red, white, and blue last year.  I have seen all kinds of mason jar crafts floating around on Pinterest and figured why not give it a try.  I went through my cabinets and decided to use a few jars that I had on hand to make some patriotic decor.  These are pretty easy to make…you just need a few jars, some star stickers, painters tape, and a little paint!


I began by sticking the star-shaped stickers to the two smaller jars, being sure to push down firmly.  Likewise, on the large jar, I decided to create vertical stripes, using painter’s tape.


I painted two coats of DecoArt Deep Midnight Blue on the smaller jars and two coats of Santa Red on the larger jar.  I let these dry on my dining room table for a couple of days.  https://myfamilythyme.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/patriotic-craft-3.jpg

Once they were completely dry, I gently and carefully peeled the stickers and removed the tape. https://myfamilythyme.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/patriotic-craft-4.jpg

Next, I added the rims and some festive ribbon to complement the color choices.


I just love the pops of patriotic color it brings to my porch.

Add a tealight candle or a some fresh flowers from the garden.


Maybe you would like to use these to hold utensils or straws?  How about a planter for some succulents?  There are so many possibilities.

I love these how these cute little patriotic decorations turned out.  I hope you give this easy and fun project a try!
