An American craft

Americana Luminaries

We ended up with a lot of cooking project this week.  So while the kids are waiting for the fireworks to start here is a little easy project for them to do.  I will admit it started out as a different project that I saw on Pinterest- let's just say don't believe everything you see on Pinterest.  They were supposed to be painted jars with little peekaboo stars......FAIL! 

The paint looked all streaky and the stars didn't look like stars at all when we peeled the stickers off the jars.  So I removed the painting step and just kept the stickers.  What's that saying? K.I.S.S.- Keep It Simple Stupid.  I hate that word "stupid", let's pretend it's Keep It Simple Silly.  Here's the project!

Light up the Night Luminaries
For the project you will need:
  • clean glass jars
  • stickers (pref. red, white, blue)
  • small candles (with adult supervision)
1.  Put stickers all over the candle.  We spelled out USA to make it extra American-y.  We used up ALL the red, silver and blue stars out of the pack of stickers!


2. Put a small candle in the jar, light it and enjoy your very special 4th of July candleholder!! 

Enjoy your evening!!
