Patriotic Candle Holders

This is an under fifteen minute, thrifty, green, and patriotic craft perfect for 4th of July decorating! 

You will need:

3 jars (I recycled some pasta sauce jars.)

scrapbook paper (patterned and solid)
pop dots or dimensionals
star punch
candles (I use the battery operated tea lights.)

What you'll do: 
1. Cut your scrapbook paper to fit your jars and tape it in the back. I use tape so I can easily remove it and use the jars for something else after the holiday is over. 
2. Cut out the letters USA. I used my Silhouette machine to do this but you could use a stencil or even use sticker letters. 
3. Adhere the letters to your jars with pop dots. 
4. Punch out some stars with the star punch and adhere them to the letters. 
5. Pop in your candles.

And there you have it!
I have these on my mantel but they would also look adorable on a front porch as well!
