I have another fun 4th of July craft for you today! I hope you like it!
I got the idea for doing this simple craft on pinterest, you can view it here. The pin led to a dead end so I decided to wing it myself. It didn’t look or sound that hard to do! Are you ready for the tut?
First, you need to gather your materials:
* Red, White and Blue tissue paper
* Mod Podge
* Mason Jar
* Glue sponge brush
I thought it would be a good idea to put mod podge on a little bit of the tissue paper and then stick it in the bottom of that jar. Not such a good idea. I couldn’t move it around very well and ended up ripping some of the paper in little/biggish areas.
It took a while for me to get that bottom layer glued down. I kept pulling on the paper too much and then not putting enough glue or putting too much glue… it wasn’t going too well.
There were a few other areas I had ripped so I added some more tissue paper to cover it up.
And Voila! It was pretty easy to fix!
(For some reason I didn’t take a picture of the next step, adding the white layer. Sorry! It’s hard to take tutorial pictures with gluey fingers and a HEAVY camera! LOL) So this is what it looked like after I glued the next 2 layers of tissue paper on. I did those layers differently and they worked out so MUCH better!
Instead of only gluing a part of the tissue paper and then inserting it into the jar, I put the glue on the jar and then put the tissue paper down. This was so easy and then once I had the tissue paper all glued too the jar I put a layer of mod podge on top of it to make sure it would stay.
I was very liberal with my glue!! You can see where I brushed it at the bottom to keep the red tissue sticking.
And here it is displayed so beautifully on my holiday display cabinet!
My toddler LOVED it and kept wanting to touch it and play with it. I have found him walking around with it a few times in the last week. And now that I have made the flag from yesterdays post to go inside it, he LOVES that flag!! Haha.
What do you think with both projects complete and blogged about? I love that I actually got some crafting done for this fun holiday!! Now, I have a HUGE list of sewing projects to get going on. I really should start another sewing challenge. I really think that helped me out a lot!!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Come back on Monday to find out how we did with our new chore board! It’s been an interesting week!
