Last Minute Patriotic Candle Holders and Vases

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Last Minute Patriotic Candles and VasesI’ve got a fun and super easy idea to share with you today…my last minute patriotic candle holders, which can also serve as vases! You still have plenty of time to whip them up for your Memorial Day table or save them for the 4th of July! They literally only take minutes to make and are inexpensive, too!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Last Minute Patriotic Candles and Vases Here’s what you will need:
  • Three vases (Mine came from Dollar Tree)
  • Fabric with stars (Mine came from Walmart)
  • Fabric with stripes (Also from Walmart)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Jute twine
And here’s what you will do:
  1. Cut fabric to fit the vase, allowing for a small overlap
  2. Wrap around the vase and secure at the overlap with dots of hot glue
  3. Finish it off by wrapping and tying jute twine
And that’s it! Easy peasy!

  1. I can use some of these great ideas. I've been too busy rearranging to decorate. Now it's Memorial Day I can still keep the stuff up until after Labor Day so I might make something. Better late than never!

  2. I love these !
    I also love how patriotic Americans are - not so much here in Canada - we seem to feel it and not show it for some reason.
    ( also our flag is not nearly as " cool " as the American and British ones lol )

  3. So many great ideas! Love the candle holders, so easy!
