Five Minute 4th of July Decor

Sharing is caring!

These patriotic Red, White, and Blue decorated vases are perfect as Memorial Day decor or as centerpieces for a 4th of July Party. These are also lovely at military celebrations.

What I really love is how inexpensive and quick these are to make. This craft honestly just takes about 5 minutes per vase.

Hello Friends!

Yesterday was one of those days. For the most part it was a decent day, but later my tire had a flat. The tow truck came out to put on my spare and when I took the car to the tire store I had to have the entire tire replaced.


To cheer myself up, I decided to have some crafty fun and make some easy 4th of July decorations. This simple flower display took minutes to make.

All you need are a few supplies.

Red White and Blue Centerpieces – Supplies

  • Red, White and Blue artificial flowers
  • Glass Square or cylinder containers
  • Red, White and Blue Ribbon 
  • Patriotic Bows (you can also make these yourself with this ribbon)
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters

















Step 1. Cut flowers to fit the vase. Depending on the size of the vase, you can use 3 or 5 flowers or more.

Step 2. Place the flowers in the glass jar. I put one of each color but again you can use as many as you like.

Step 3. Tie a ribbon around the centerpiece. I chose a thin ribbon because it is what I had on hand.

Step 4. Attach the bows to the ribbon.

There is my super simple arrangement. I made a couple of these and will put them on my mantle.
