Easy 4th of July Decorated Bottles

Easy 4th of July Decorated Bottles

I wanted to make something "easy" for the 4th. In a previous post, Stardom Craft Liquid Markers, I showed you some wine bottles that I used the markers on. Here I will show you how I created them.

4th of July Camping Decor

I love decorating for the 4th, do you? We are camping but that doesn't mean I can't decorate our campsite. Right?

I tried to make items that would travel well and not take up too much space. 

We had a palm tree right beside our campsite that was the perfect spot to place my 4th of July decor.

4th of July Jars

We had an early 4th of July party on Friday. It was more of a dinner than a simple cook out. (Work related thing) I wanted to make things that would NOT require me to be in the kitchen all day and during the party. I made appetizers, marinated two beef tenderloins to put on the grill and decided to set up a potato bar and deserts. I wanted to have cute jars for the toppings. Something for the 4th.

My Unordinary Valentine!

I wanted to do something different for my Valentine decoration this year, but what? I was cleaning  out some wood in the barn and created a pile of wood trim pieces that I used for testing paint colors. I hated to throw them away, but they were small pieces and not really "Valentine" colors. My mind started to work and I thought, why not a Valentine plaque. So here is what I created.

Now let me tell you how I did this.

Last Minute Centerpiece

Need something on your side table, coffee table, or anywhere, why not create a cranberry candle centerpiece. I needed three for the round tables that we set up on our deck for our annual Christmas party. I knew I wanted candles, but didn't want to spend a lot and I didn't want them to take up too much room. 

I looked in my stash and the fridge to see what might work. This is what I came up with.

Candy Cane Wreath - Kids Activity

With school ending for the holidays, you might need a great craft for the kids to do. Why not make a Candy Cane Wreath. My neighbor's daughter loves to come to my house. She said I was "the world's best crafter"! Kids are so naive!! 

We always do some sort of craft when she and her friends come over. 
On Saturday, they were coming over to work on Christmas presents for their moms. She brought me this candy cane wreath that she had made. She is nine. What a lovely surprise.

Holiday Mason Jars

It seems that so many of us just love mason jars, myself included. They are so great to decorate with.  I have many from my Grandmother which I try to keep separate. About 5 years ago when I lived in Pittsburgh, I drove to Vermont to visit my grand kids in the summer. That year I went to a garage sale late one afternoon. They still had many items to sell and I think they were getting tired. 

There were three boxes of mason jars. Needless to say, I was on them immediately. She had them priced at $5 per box. I am not sure how many were in each box - somewhere between 10 - 14 each. Some were large, but most of them were the small ones and all had their lids, like the ones in my picture below.

She saw me looking at them and said, "you can have all of them for $5". I tried not to fall over and grabbed them up before anyone else did. Since there was only one other person there, I was pretty safe.

Happy New Year Everyone !

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. It has gone by so fast, but the time spent with family and friends was great. 


It is hard to believe that another year has come and gone. They say as you get older, time seems to fly by faster, I think they are right. 


I only began my blog in late August, and I was so exciting hooking up with other bloggers and linking up to many wonderful link parties and so much inspiration from all of you. 


Hopefully this new year will bring even greater growth in my blog and in myself. I have new projects planned and  many projects that need to be finished.


I look forward to visiting with all of you and hope you will spend some time with me as well as I continue with my journey. 


Best Wishes for a Happy New year!
