Materials and tools to make easy farmhouse DIY July 4th decorations:

( Some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. )

  • Empty tin cans and / or glass jars from your recycle bin: I used three 28 oz (794g) cans
  • Scissors, paper, scotch tape or double sided tape. If you want to make the mason jar lights, you can use these LED fairy lights.
  • Regular 8.5″x11″ paper and any home printer. You can download the free printable designs at the end!

How to make up-cycled tin can July 4th decorations:

Print the designs, measure the tin can or jar height and cut the paper accordingly. The 28oz cans are 4.5″ tall.

Starting at one end of the paper, tape the paper and wrap it around to the other side, use clear scotch tape to secure both ends.

Because the 11″ long paper is not long enough to wrap around the entire can, cut an extra piece and tape it to finish the open side. That’s it! Wouldn’t these be great last-minute patriotic decorations?

Optional: if you plan to keep these labor day or July 4th decorations outside for a few days, brush some Modpodge or spray a clear sealer like one of these over the paper will make it more moisture resistant.

I am using these July 4th decorations as centerpiece vases for the table. The white roses and purple pea flowers are perfect in a farmhouse setting. They would look wonderful on a shelf, a mantel, or even on door steps!
