Happy Independence Day. We hope you are having a fabulous day. The shop is closed but we couldn’t resist sharing some of our favorite DIY projects perfect for a patriotic wedding!
For an outdoor wedding or other 4th of July party, we found these adorable jars perfect and festive. Each guest takes a jar and voila, they have their drinking glass, their silverware and napkin. They can also take their handkerchief with them at the end of the party if they wish.
Very little DIY necessary here, just make sure you have enough jars for each guest. Wrap each set of silverware / plastic ware with a red, white or blue bandanna / handkerchief, etc and stuff in the jar. Simple, easy but oh so cute!
We found a resource for inexpensive handkerchiefs you can buy in bulk here.
Looking for a simple and inexpensive but patriotic centerpiece or table decoration? How about this super cute but simple idea. All you need to do is buy a package of wooden / bamboo skewers, cut out stars from colored paper in red, white and blue and glue the stars to one end of your skewers. Put the star sticks in vases, jars, wooden pails, etc. You could also add flowers like white and red carnations, hydrangeas or whatever your preference for a fuller look.
