I needed a 4th of July centerpiece. I’ve been trying to use the supplies I have on hand, so no running to Hob Lob, Roberts or Ben Franklin for me. This is what I came up with. Three random wood candle holders, some twine,
A faded platter and some clear and black plastic stars. I’m trying to figure out why I had these stars (they’re kind of strange).
Then I got into my spray paint stash for red, white and blue spray paint.
The platter got painted red.
The stars white, of course.
And the candle holders blue.
I like the tall candle holder, but it’s not a chunky as the others and looked out of place to me. I used the twine to beef it up a little by wrapping it around the skinniest part and securing it with hot glue.
It still wasn’t thick enough, so I wrapped it again going back up toward the top. It looks much better now.
And here’s the finished centerpiece.
Kind of fun and whimsical.
I like my new centerpiece and especially that it was free. Sometimes it’s nice to have a stash of random stuff. Just remember to keep it organized (wink)!
