Goodwill is a great place to find plates!
I found a 3 pack of the small American flags in the dollar spot at Target. I put the jars on top of the flags to flatten them out. They were a little curled up from being in the package.
I removed t was careful then used roll on adhesive tape (it can be found just about anywhere that sells crafts) to the back of flag. I lined up the flag with the jar. You can't really mess this part up because the flag fit perfectly on to the ja
I added a little twine to the top of the jar to make it look less like a pickle jar. I used gorilla glue and a clothespin to keep the twine in place until the glue dried.
I added some tea lights to the jars and instant outdoor lighting was created. They look so pretty at night! Um, somebody should really paint those steps. Although, I kind of dig the chippy white paint look. ;) It's amazing what you can make with the stuff you already have on hand.

    We use small flags for our patriotic program at school. Over the years, many of the sticks have broken. Now I have a project for those stickless flags.
