DIY 4th of July Table Centerpiece for $8

We love Independence Day for many reasons but in light of recent events, I have to say, I’m glad there won’t be any fireworks this year. It’s so risky with how dry things are around here.

I asked around for ideas to create a DIY 4th of July craft and had lots of replies but decided to go with 2 very easy & budget friendly ideas; Candy Filled Firecrackers and a Table Centerpiece, which was Cat’s idea. Today we’re focusing on the centerpiece, with the firecrackers coming the next day!


TABLE CENTERPIECE – By far the easiest thing I’ve ever done and the cost? $8


  • Red, White, & Blue Ribbon $1.97
  • Red, White, & Blue Flowers ( I went with fake so I can reuse) $2.00 each = $6
  • Any clear jar or vase (anything around your house or even a drinking glass)


  1. Simply cut the stems off to fit nicely in your size jar that you’ve chosen.  You’ll probably need a wire cutter if using fake flowers.
  2. Place ribbon in the jar any way you want.
  3. Arrange flowers in jar and in the middle of ribbon so that stems aren’t seen.

    That’s so pretty! I love how you filled the jar with the ribbon, I never even would have thought of that. Knowing me, I’d have bought $20 worth of red white and blue m&ms to fill it up and eat later. LOL
