I’m continuing with the red-white-and-blue theme this week with another patriotic Fourth of July craft that our entire family had a hand in making!

American Flag Mason Jar Decorations

I have a love affair with mason jars. I use them for their intended purpose of food storage and canning. But we also drink out of them. I collect vintage examples, and I love. creating mason jar decorations and crafts for whatever party I’m planning at the moment!

These colorful sand art centerpieces added such a festive touch to our patriotic picnic.

There’s no right or wrong way to do these. You may opt for three bands of sand — or more. And you can start with the red or blue. Just make sure the white is in the middle if you’re trying to be patriotic.

For our party, we lined the mason jar decorations on our buffet table.

      Sand painting… now that sounds interesting. Do tell… And did you have sand all over the house, as well? So far, we’ve kept our sand jars outside for that very reason!
