An Easy 4th Centerpiece


Start with this:


Put your candle in the microwave just until it is soft enough to dig out.

Then take this sheet music that you googled and printed out...


Or you could do Yankee Doodle Dandy, or God Bless America. Just google "Patriotic Songs".



Stuff some of this in it.....


 and add your sparklies and flags. (Bottle rockets and roman candles would look good, too)


And I added this photo to my centerpiece, because July 4th was my father's birthday.



To see the wooden flag I made  behind the centerpiece, go to this post.

Brilliant idea about the sheet music...I can't believe I'm saying this but I have never even purchased a bottle of Mod Podge. I think it's time I did! Thanks for the great inspiration.
