Life is so busy these days that I want to share my easy and simple tips when holidays come around. Between summer activities and errands, holidays literally sneak up on us! I want to decorate the house, but find little time to do so. These simple 4th of July lanterns are the perfect touch for your patriotic bbq. Along with a few flowers, they create a beautiful centerpiece.

All these items can be picked up at the grocery store, if you don’t have them already. If your store doesn’t carry small decorative sand, you can always use marbles. You can typically find them by the floral department while you shop for fresh hydrangeas.

Simple 4th of July Lanterns:

  • Mason Jars (Any size works)
  • Sand or Marbles
  • Small American Flag
  • LED votive or tea candle

This may seem like a no brainer, but I will add the steps just in case:

  1. Pour sand in the bottom of the jar about 1/8 of the way full.
  2. Next, place the flag in the jar and submerge the very bottom stripe to secure it.
  3. Last, turn on the votive and place in the jar.

These simple 4th of July lanterns will add a glimmer of light to any table centerpiece.   White flowers and American flags, in mason jars… now that speaks to love for ones’ country! I love how they look with white hydrangeas and additional flags. My children love candles and I love to watch their little eyes light up with joy.

Speaking of candles, please don’t skip out on the LED lights and substitute with real candles! The last thing we need is a burning flag! Oh my goodness!

Other ways to use these lanterns include:

  • Patio Bar
  • Buffet
  • Lining Steps on patio
  • Bathroom Decor

    I’m thinking I’m going to make a few of the wreaths I saw on your site the other day, and then several of these for our backyard table. I love it!

    What a great idea to add to your decor for your celebration. I’ll have to try this using a Canadian flag for Canada Day.

    These are awesome! Sometimes decorating for single-day holidays versus seasons can be time-consuming and expensive! I love this – how easy, affordable, and gorgeous it is.
