Quick & Easy 4th of July Decoration

My family has always gone all out with decorations for the 4th of July – partially because it’s such a great summer holiday, but also because my mom’s birthday just happens to fall on the fourth as well. This is a quick and festive decoration that you can make, and show your patriotic flair as well.

Quick & Easy 4th of July Decoration 

Save a can from your kitchen and clean it up. Paint it with gesso and the spray with a blue mist. Punch holes in the top to hang your decoration with twine. Use a Crop-a-Dile to punch holes along the rim, for your ribbon to go through.

Use the May Arts Stars to decorate the can. Cut the stars apart and glue on the can. Tie ribbon streamers through the punched holes.
