In honor of July 4Th- I made these Flag Luminaries. I bought the flags at Michael's ( got them for 50% off, so I spent a total of $2 for the four mini flags). I re purposed two glass jars ( they're the same size )- used spray adhesive on the flags to glue them to the jars. Then Mod Podged the flags ( making sure I didn't get any on the jar) to make sure the flags didn't come off the jar. I found the idea on the Mod Podge blog.
Here's a close up of the luminaries. I wrapped twine ( I bought a large spool from the hardware store a few years ago- for about $4 I've been able to use it on countless projects) around the lip of the jars several times. The smaller jar is one I frosted last year using a template I created with my Cricut. I needed something smaller to set off the luminaries (*things always seem to look better in sets of three*).
Here's a birds eye view of the luminaries- all lighted up. This project came together easily- with very little mess ( though, my fingers did get sticky when I used the spray adhesive! Not really sure how to avoid that..)- I'm excited to try it again using pieces of scrap material. Looks like a trip to Joann's is in my future. I need to check out their remnants section.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a safe, fun- filled Fourth.
