4th of July Table Centerpiece
With the Fourth of July coming up, I really wanted to come up with a great centerpiece for my table. I decided to decoupage some styrofoam balls.
This is such a quick project and it won't break the bank.
Ms. Vicki found these paper napkins for me at TJ Maxx and I picked up some styrofoam balls for the project.
I used 1gel for the project. You can find out all about it in the blog post, but I prefer it over Mod Podge. It isn't quite as thick, so there are fewer air bubbles, plus it leaves a great topcoat, too. There is also a great coupon in the post for this, as well.
All of the detailed instructions for covering the balls are in the post, so be sure to check them out. I have some amazing tips for cutting the napkins ahead of time. Once covered, let them dry completely.
Once they were finished, I threw them into a bread bowl and now I have a beautiful arrangement. This is such a fun project and even the kids can get involved!
Enjoyed the project?
