4th of July Mason Jars


4th of July Mason Jars

Independence Day is several weeks away, but it is always one of those holidays that sneaks up on you.  A busy summer full of outdoor activities means that the holiday arrives before you can plan ahead for your 4th of July barbeque or family gathering.  This year I will be helping to remind you by posting several patriotic themed projects, crafts, and decorating ideas over the next few weeks to help you get ready.  Consider this your first reminder!


I love the idea of housing your plastic utensils or silverware for any party or barbeque in DIY decorated mason jars.

This project is so easy.  All you need is red, white and blue acrylic paint, a paintbrush, and some painter’s tape.

July 4th Mason Jars

You can paint the inside of each jar solid red, white and blue for an easy and quick version of this project! I like the dry sponge painting method for this idea – it gives the jars a more rustic look since you end up with more of a splotchy painted look.

However, to paint them to mimic the American Flag, paint one solid blue, let dry and freehand or use a stencil to paint white stars on top of your dried blue paint.  Next, for the other two mason jars, paint them solid white and let dry. Add painters tape in several straight lines or rows around your white jars and paint red stripes, to create your red and white stripes.


It’s never too early to order in your patriotic decorations for your summer 4th of July celebration and our Etsy shops can help!  This year we have added much of our 4th of July banners, favors, and pinwheels to the shops early to help you start planning ahead!

Or click on over to the PINWHEEL PRETTIES shop- we have plenty of pinwheels ready to ship that will make it to you in time for your 4th of July celebration or any party!

I’m just going to assume you have your supplies but now just need to know what to do with them and how to make your festivities an event to remember.  Let’s explore some options!


A Rosette Bouquet is a great centerpiece – get your rosettes at The Party Fetti Shop!  Throw some citronella in your Rice Mason Jar Luminary to help keep the bugs away.  Bandanas as napkins AND decorations, yes please!  Plus keep those kids busy making some Paper Ring Garland.


You can also decorate with food, looks yummy!

Drunken Melon

For the adults – the Drunken Melon.  I almost added this to my melon post, but thought I’d wait for a fun holiday, like the 4th.  Cut a hole, add a bottle of your favorite vodka, let it sit overnight and enjoy!  You can also use tequila and dip the slices in sea salt.

Ice Cubes

I like to make a special brew and freeze it for ice cubes.  You can steep herbs and fruit in hot water and freeze as well.  Adding food coloring is another great touch!


Another great summer adult only idea is Sangria.  I always have a batch in the fridge!


Need a way to keep the kids busy while you enjoy those great adult treats?  A bag toss using Frisbees adds an interesting twist.  A squirt gun game is good to have around for a lot of events.  Use sidewalk chalk to set up a fun course.  Lawn Twister will also be great for adults after the kids are done and the liquor kicks in!


A big part of the fun involved in the 4th of July is staying out after dark.  Make sure your decorations are versatile by using a glow stick.  This is also handy to help people walk along path ways, down stairs, avoid poles and your precious plants!  Hang them from trees, umbrellas or lay them on the ground and don’t use helium.

Don’t forget to get stocked up for your next event.  The Party Fetti Shop, Pinwheel Pretties, Once Upon a Home Designs, Ready Set Craft Kits and I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs have plenty to choose from!
