Are you looking for easy DIY 4th of July decorations? These patriotic mason jar lights will only take you a few minutes to make; you can even get the kids involved. They’re a great way to show your pride on the 4th of July. Use the following items, which can be found at most craft and grocery stores:
Supplies

  • Red and Blue Food Coloring
  • White Rice
  • Mason Jars (or something else that would work as a candle holder)
  • Tea Light Candles or Small Pillar Candles

You’ll also need:

  • Glass or Plastic Bowls
  • Glass or Plastic Containers
  • Spoons (for mixing the food coloring and rice)
  • Funnel
  • Measuring Cup (for scooping the rice)

Protect your surface (kitchen table, countertop, etc.) because you don’t want to get any food coloring on it.

Step 1: Gather your bowl, food coloring, mason jars, and tea light candles.

Step 2: Separate the rice, about 2 cups per color, or your desired amount per layer. You may use plastic storage containers. But since food coloring can stain plastics, you may opt to use glass or metal storage containers instead. Squirt several drops or more (for a richer color) of the food coloring into the rice. Use a spoon to evenly distribute. Place rice on a cooking sheet to dry. It may take 15-30 minutes.

Step 3: Use a funnel and measuring cup or spoon to layer the dried rice in the jars; create the pattern and order of colors your desire. Gently place a votive or small pillar candle in the middle of the rice. Light the candle.

Step 4: Tie a string or ribbon around the rim and display your mason jar 4th of July decorations for all to see!

Keep in mind that once the 4th of July is over, you can save and recycle the rice for your next jubilant occasion. Put a top on the mason jars and store them away in a cool place.

Have a happy 4th of July!
