I saw somewhere on the ‘net where they had taken some dried Allium flowers and sprayed them red, white and blue. They added a few ribbons, placed them in a jar and had an adorable centerpiece. Well, what’s better than ribbon? Trendy Twine!! LOL I couldn’t find any dried so I made my own. I designed a starburst file in Make the Cut and cut out 115 in color. I folded the flower part in half then half again and glued them to a 1″ foam ball (with the twine covered dowel already inserted). I have the flower file available for download below.
The curlies are really simple to do. I wrapped twine around a dowel and sponged on some Stiffy. Let dry for a few hours then slide off. I just love how they add to the project. So cute! You can’t see it in the picture but I also used stickers and the glass frosting spray to make the bottle say “Happy 4th of July”. With that being said, I hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth of July! See you on the flip side!
