Pride: Front & Center

Hello!  Shellye along today to bring a fun and easy centerpiece using the PRIDE COLLECTION!  If you're like me then you love the dollar bin at Target.  I found this cute red splattered pail and gathered up several of them for altered projects such as this Americana centerpiece/display. 

To begin I used two different sizes of lace round dies by Lifestyle Crafts (you could also use paper punches or SVG files to achieve a similar look) and cut the shapes from desired patterned paper.

Cut (2) shapes for each stick.  To the back piece attach a paper straw with a fast-drying liquid glue.  Next, add thick foam dots (same height or taller than the straw's width) and attach the top round piece.  Layer on various stickers and glittery chipboard stars. 

 Fill the pail with floral foam and arrange the sticks as desired; top with red paper shred or Spanish Moss. When the 4th of July cook-out arrives, I'll add it to the buffet table and celebrate in style!
I hope that you've enjoyed today's project...thanks for joining us today!

  10. Thank all of you ladies for the sweet comments! Yes, it is sooo easy to make, yet I think it makes such a nice presentation :) If you can't find 'straws' you can use wooden dowels covered in washi tape or painted. I hope you ALL get a chance to try it!!!
