I’m super excited about 4th of July and I wanted to share this super easy 4th of July centerpiece. I’m always looking for frugal 4th of July Decorations so I have to get creative. Let’s face it. Decorations can be very expensive. This easy one was not!
I spent $6 on this… yep only $6. Now I did reuse some of the items from my house, so let me explain. I hope that this easy and frugal centerpiece will give you some inspiration for frugal 4th of July Decorations for your table.
I ran to Target to snag my supplies. I was actually in the Dollar spot and that sparked my inspiration!
This is what I bought:
2 4th of July pinwheels – they were $1 each
Red Tissue paper – from the party section for $1
A fourth of July scarf in the dollar spot for $3
This is what I used from around my house:
2 Champagne flutes – I never drink champagne out of these because I’m always using them for decorations. 🙂
The candle with red ribbon. I had this in my cabinets from Christmas. The glass and the candle and ribbon are all from Dollar Tree. I then painted by candle with my homemade mod podge and then rolled it in glitter I had in my craft box. It was really easy to do and I was able to use it for Christmas and 4th of July. WIN! I love being able to repurpose decorations from one season to the next. That is a huge money saver.
How to make 4th of July Centerpiece:
- Once you have your candle done or repurposed you need a a runner.
2. I was really proud of myself. I thought using a scarf as a table runner was so creative and very frugal. Runners can be very pricey! You want to bunch it up so it looks fuller. You can lay it out flat if you have a longer table. Place your candle in the middle.
3. Next I simply stuffed two pieces in each champagne flute with the beautiful pinwheels. These went on either side of the candle.
You have to admit – it looks so cute. My girls… we they just love it. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, they have to take a minute to blow on the pinwheels.
Pinwheels are super fun like that. 🙂
I hope these 4th of July Decorations give you inspiration to make your own centerpiece.
