Make vintage themed Juneteenth Independence Day Centerpieces to decorate your home with this summer. This is a sponsored post.
There is lots to celebrate in the summer! In the United States we have two big celebrations that focus on freedom:Juneteenth and Independence Day. The Fourth of July celebrates the nation’s freedom, and Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the US, which is the day every American became free. Both historic events are worth celebrating, so I’m sharing two ways you can incorporate them into your decor.
Supplies for Juneteenth Independence Day Centerpieces
- Mason Jars
- Martha Steward Milk Glass Paint
- OnLineLabels.com White Matte Labels
- OnlineLabels.com Mini Star Labels
- Instant Relatives Collage from Ephemoire Shop
- Patriotic Ephemera Collage Sheet from Ephemoire Shop
- Vintage Ribbons
- Various Florals
I gave mason jars a beautiful vintage look by using Martha Stewart Craft’s Milk Glass Paint. Pour a generous amount of paint into the jars, and swirl the paint around to cover the inside of the jars. Leave the jars upside down to let the excess paint drip out (you can save the excess for next time) and then let the paint dry.
Select the images you wish to use and print them onto OnlineLabels.com printable sticker paper. To make the stars coordinate perfectly, I printed the banner image onto the star paper. When I lifted each star they had the same vintage colors as the images!
Peel and stick the images on the jars. The great thing about the printable labels from OnlineLabels.com is that they STICK. Even on uneven surfaces like mason jars!
I fussy cut the banners and eagle insignia from the label paper to embellish the jars. The vintage patriotic ephemera pairs beautifully with the vintage photos. I finished off the jars with some pretty florals, and tied a bit of vintage ribbon around the neck of the jar. These pretty centerpieces are great for Juneteenth and Independence Day, so enjoy them for most of the summer! Have fun crafting and creating!
