Fourth of July Table

Fourth of July is just around the corner, yet I am just getting my decor done! I didn't do much inside the house, but I did want a centerpiece on my dining table. This is what I came up with, and I was very happy with how it turned out. :)

I used a red fabric placemat for the bottom along with the striped hand towel.

This is a tin can that I wrapped in red, white, and blue coordinating scrapbook paper. The stars were cut with my Cricut and glued to cookie sticks then placed at varying heights. Last, I added the flag.

I made the "fireworks" using toilet paper rolls, scrapbook paper, and silver tinsel/basket filler. They were probably my favorite part of the centerpiece!

And these stars were a last minute idea to complete the whole setting.
