Easy DIY Patriotic Luminaries

Happy Monday! I’m so excited to share the most adorable, easy DIY Patriotic Luminaries that I made over the weekend. We went thrifting on Saturday morning and I found several glass jars which were perfect for making luminaries for the 4th of July!

Love, love, LOVE them!

This patriotic craft is easy and fun to make. These jars can be used as vases too.

Patriotic Craft Supplies Needed:

  • Glass Jars
  • Scissors
  • Twine
  • Pleated or ruffled trim
  • Ribbon
  • Modpodge and brush
  • Hot glue/glue gun
  • Candles

I secured the end of twine with hot glue and used ModPodge to glue twine to jars. Then I wrapped jars with twine, ribbon and trim in various combinations. I used ModPodge primarily because it won’t melt when the glass heats up from a candle. :)

Didn’t they turn out so cute? I’m swooning over the pleated red trim.

They glow so pretty!

Ohhh la, la! I’m going to use the luminaries for a centerpiece on my dining room table or maybe a little display beside my front door. :)

Note: I got the ribbons and trims at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. :)

Have you done any patriotic crafting for Memorial Day or the 4th of July?

      Thank you, what a great idea, they are to cute you did a great job!
      I’ve been stashing trims, etc. for years and now I know just what to do with it. I’ll be helping my granddaughters make up some of these cuties for gift giving and what’s great is we won’t have to purchase a thing, I even have the candles ……..

    These are ADORABLE! I think I may try LED candles though. I know the glow isn’t as nice but they will be safer outside with little kids around for our 4th celebration. They will make great centerpieces for our tables. Thank you for the great idea.
