This is Cheryl from a pretty cool life! This is a project that is super simple and that you can complete for just a few dollars, but it still has a huge impact. They're perfect for setting a festive and patriotic atmosphere for 4th of July parties! Use these DIY lanterns as a centerpiece for a BBQ, line a walkway with them, or put them on a mantel.
- large glass jars (clean and with labels removed)
- small American flags (most grocery stores, drug stores, etc have them near the checkout this time of year)
- Mod Podge Gloss
- votive candles or tea lights
After the jars have dried, place a candle in each. If your jars have a bit of a bump in the bottom, you may want to pour a bit of sand in the bottoms and nestle the candles in the sand. Your DIY lanterns are complete.
