4th of July Centerpiece

Since I made soooo many of these and had quite a bit left over from a previous project, I decided to make a centerpiece by making them into flowers.

I started with some small dowels that I had and painted them red and white since I still have no blue paint in the house. 

I stuck them in the holes of these wiffle balls that were in these plastic cups so that they can dry.  Then I flipped them over and painted the other end of the dowels.

When they dried I added the ruffled material to the sticks with glue gun.  I wrapped them around the tips of the dowels and then cut a circle felt to cover the bottom of the material where the dowel meets.

Then I got a mason jar that I picked up from Goodwill a few weeks ago for $.69 and filled it with some black marbles and tied some jute around the neck of the jar.  I also inserted 3 of these picks for more flare that I had left over from a previous project.

I love how it turned out and goes great with the table runner and plate that I received from a summer swap I participated in.  Thanks for stopping by.
