Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop Day 4

Happy 4th  of July!!!
Welcome to the Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop day 4. This blog hop runs from July 1st through July 4th. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with celebrating freedom and the 4th of July theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes  which Lisa will be giving away. In order to be eligible for the grand prizes you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become followers to all the ladies in the hop also.

Be sure to come back all 4 days because all blogs in this hop will post a new project each day. Lisa will be picking the winners from all the comments left throughout the 4 days.
 You should have arrived here from  Aisha 
        
 
I have several of the small flags on sticks that are passed out at parades that I usually wind up using as plant pokes because I don't know what to do with them and I can't bring myself to throw them out.. I found this idea on pinterest and decided to give it a try. I started with a red mason jar (from Hobby Lobby..i think). After I removed the stick from the flag i used sticky dots to adhere the flag to the jar. I wrapped twine around the top of the jar. Looking at it now, I think that I would have died the twine red and blue and maybe added a tag. I used a citronella tea light (maybe it will help with the mosquitoes).

Here is a list of the complete lineup for this hop in case you get lost along the way!
