Fast and Easy Fourth of July Mantle.....

 I am so excited to share my  fast and easy 4th of July mantle idea!  This idea can be implemented not only for a mantle, but anywhere you want some seasonal cheer.  The best part, it's Fast, Easy and Economical!!

 First I used my mantle 'canning jars'', this time I  filled them almost to the top with rice.  I had the rice left over from my living room center piece, but sand or tiny pebbles, ect. would also work.

 The rice acts as a filler which will hold the upcoming flags in place, similar to the glass pebbles which hold flowers in place, the rice is just less expensive and doesn't have to be stored.

 I have over the years collected the medium sized flags which come on their own 'pole'.  I have bought these at both Target and Walmart.  They usually come in packs and can be used year after year!

 Next the flags are placed in the rice filled jars.  I start with one flag in each jar and progress until each jar has three flags.  I do it this way because when working in layers it  is easier to see how the whole assemblage of flags works together, for the mantle as a whole.

 First layer, one flag, one jar.

 Adding flags until each jar contains three flags.

 Voila!! The 4th  of July mantle is complete!  This simple idea brings huge impact for the effort!!  My favorite kind of Styling!!

 This simple idea of flags plus jars (or cans, or any vessel you have), plus rice, (or sand or pebbles ect.), can be used anywhere!  Barbeques, parties, inside or out! Anywhere you want to celebrate our country!!
Wishing you love and joy as you style your life!
Thanks so for stopping by!
