4th of July Centerpiece By Laura Bray

Here’s a quick and simple centerpiece that will liven up any 4th of July BBQ picnic table! The glitter not only adds a patriotic touch, but it sparkles in both the sunlight and in the evening by candlelight!


Roses: White and Red (real or silk)
Art Glitter: Designer Dries Clear Adhesive
Art Glitter: Gala Glitz in Blue
Small flag


• Apply glue to the petal edges of your white roses
• Sprinkle glitter onto glued areas
• Place glittered roses in a vase, along with the red roses and the flag

For our friends around the world, you can create your own centerpieces based on your country’s flag. Just keep your flag’s color scheme in mind when choosing flower and glitter and you are ready to celebrate-no matter where you live.

  1. How fun Laura! I can't help but think that this project could be combined with your coffee filter flowers for even more fun!
