Patriotic July 4th Indepence Day Crafts

 Terra cotta pots: Paint primitive pictures like sheep, stars, crows, and simple Uncle Sam hats in red white and blue on terra cotta pots with acrylic.

Plant your favorite flower or plant then set it out on your porch or deck to add a bit of patriotic charm to the outside of your house.

Or, to give the inside of your house some old country primitive charm, add Styrofoam inside the pot, glue moss on top and add a wire curly cue to hold a picture then set on your coffee table of picture shelf.

 Burlap and muslin candle jar wraps: Again using acrylic, paint primitive sheep, willow trees, Uncle Sam hats, barns, fences, out buildings and stars in patriotic red, white and blue. Then sew around the edges (shown are candle jar wraps with raw edges) and velcro at both ends then set around the house to mingle with your gorgeous antiques.

 Old vintage (antique) window and frame: Using acrylic and the same patriotic colors to keep with my Forth of July theme, I painted trees, barn, out building and a hint of grass on one pane. Below it on the next pane of glass, I painted three very simple cat shapes with eyes. Change out with a piece of wall art you've grown weary of...
Jar: Take an empty jelly jar, free hand stripes, stencil in some stars, add a votive in a glass votive holder and you've got yourself a pretty candle holder to light up an Independence Day evening.

Note: For your glass projects, wipe down with alcohol and let dry. You'll need to paint several layers for the glass to look right so be sure to let the paint dry between coats.

You can find these items for sale at Gramma Sophie's in Boonville, MO.
