Materials used to make this 4th of July candy centerpiece: a basket, a themed bow, fun size candy bars (Nestle® BabyRuth®, Crunch®, and Mounds®), a themed narrow ribbon or curling ribbon (red, blue, and white), silk flowers of red, blue, and white colors, floral foam, red shredded paper, bamboo skewers, a glue gun with glue sticks, and tools (scissors and wire cutters).
Fourth of July decorations - Step 1. Prepare a small or medium sized basket and floral foam. You can use floral foam bricks or a Styrofoam disc. Cut the foam to the appropriate size so that it sits firmly in your basket. If you use floral foam bricks, you may need to add additional wedges of foam, as shown in the picture. The foam should sit about one inch below the rim of your basket.
Step 2. Cover the foam with red shredded paper.
Step 3. The theme colors for Independence Day are the colors of the American flag. Prepare silk flowers in red, white, and blue colors.
b) Insert the flowers into the basket in an oval or round design, spacing the flowers evenly all around. This arrangement is a centerpiece, so it should look good from any side.
If you need to elongate some of the flower stems, attach a piece of bamboo skewer to the stem with green floral tape.
4th of July crafts - Step 4. Make candy flowers for your Patriotic centerpiece.
b) Glue a skewer to the back of each candy bar. Hold the skewer down for a few seconds to make sure it is secure.
c) Insert the candy flowers into the basket arranging them within the design. When you finish the front of the bouquet, insert additional candy flowers in the back of the bouquet. Make sure that they face out from the center of the bouquet.
Step 5. Add a bow to your candy bouquet.
I wish Happy 4th of July to you and your loved ones! See more fun 4th of July crafts.
