DIY Flag Luminaries //
Here’s what you’ll need:
- pickle jars (or mason jars)
- american flags
- scotch tape
- mod podge
- sponge paint brush
I used pickle jars for this fun DIY. I measured the flags with all the jars in my house and found the pickle jars were the perfect size. No need to cut the flag. GG had some laying around that I was able to take off her hands. Any jar will do the trick.
If your jars have labels, just soak them in warm water + dish soap. You’ll bed able to remove them pretty easily.
Scored the 3-pack of American Flags in the dollar spot at Target. 3 flags for a buck, you can’t beat that. Carefully remove the flags from the wooden sticks.
Tape the American Flags to the jars. This will help keep them in place.
Using the foam paint brush, apply a coat of mod podge over the top of the flag. Wait 20 minutes and repeat with a second coat. Remove scotch tape.
Allow to dry overnight.
Add twine or ribbon to the top and add a dab of glue to keep the twine in place.
Stick a candle and you’re good to go.
I love coming up with fun festive crafts to make with items I have on hand. Or can pick-up from the dollar spot!
