I’m on a roll this week! We have lots of new content coming out this summer and I can honestly say that I’m excited for every single project this summer. I have been so busy planning later summer plans, I totally forgot that this coming weekend is Memorial Day. I figured this out Sunday afternoon and found some DIYs that I just HAD to make to kickoff this summer fun. I love this DIY because it will transition into 4th of July Party Decor VERY easy. Let me show you I made these DIY American Flag Lanterns!

Check out the video tutorial or view the step out photos below. 🙂

Skip over to the second project in the video to watch how these DIY American Flag Lanterns were made. I legit show every step. You will be able to see that Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint is the real reason that this project is even possible. You cannot make this project without it! I love that it works on glass and how QUICK it dries. I LOVE it.

4. For the other two jars, you’re going to want to put two strips of painters tape around each jar. Preferably the same place on each jar.
5. Paint your jars with Chalky Finish in Rouge.
6. Take a piece of sand paper and sand lightly for a vintage touch!
