With summer underway and the Fourth of July close around the corner, it is a great time to start thinking about patriotic decorations! If you love hosting and having people over, then a patriotic centerpiece is a great way to spruce up any space! This DIY Fourth of July centerpiece is perfect for an inside or outside table. In fact I really love it on my patio table outside! It is fun, festive and of course super easy to make! Woot woot! So keep reading for the full supply list, complete tutorial and photos to help you recreate your own patriotic centerpiece for the summer!
DIY Fourth of July Centerpiece Supplies:
- Darice Decorative Copper Canisters (3)
- 4″ x 1″ Styrofoam Discs (3 packages)
- Darice 4″ x 6″ American Flags (24)
- Darice Star Shaped Pony Beads (Optional)
These fun DIY Fourth of July centerpieces were a cinch to put together and they are perfect for any patriotic holiday. And if you don’t live in the US, you can sub out your own flag for your own patriotic centerpiece!
To make these you will begin by placing 1 full package of Styrofoam discs into each of your copper canisters. You don’t need to glue them together, but you can if you prefer to. But they will sit in the canisters pretty well.
Then you will place your flags into the Styrofoam. I began by placing four in a square shape in the center of the Styrofoam.
Then I placed four more around those flags on the outside of the foam. I pushed the ones on the outside into the foam a bit more so they would be lower then the ones in the center.
If you want to cover up your foam, the star shaped pony beads are a great way to do that. They add a bit more patriotic love to the centerpiece, and it also gives the centerpieces a bit more weight to resist falling over when a strong wind comes along! These are of course optional, but I think they are really fun!
I placed all three canisters on my patio table and we are now ready to have friends over for a fun summer BBQ!
Isn’t this so fun!?
