Let's Celebrate the 4th of July!!

Here's an easy craft you can do for your 4th of July decorating - even with only days left until the celebration!  

All you need is a clean jar or bottle (or two, or three!) and some craft paint, sand or epsom salt, little flags and some ribbon!



Pin It
 I bought these plain bottles for 99 cents each at Michael's.  You can also use Ball canning jars or maybe any jar you happen to have handy!!

Start out by painting the jar with 2 - 3 coats of paint. 




After it's VERY dry, take a small grit piece of sandpaper (or nail file) and distress the bottles. 



Tie a bow around the top and fill the bottle (using a funnel if needed).  Add a flag or some flowers (sparklers maybe?) and you're done!
