Clay Pottery Star Spangled

I have seen a lot of inspiration out there for crafty items for the Independence Day celebrations.  I'm not too crafty so I like "easy" projects and quick results!

 I made of pair of these which will probably be set on the outdoor dining table for the 4th of July celebrating!

 The clay pots were spray painted inside and out and I used a cone shaped styrofoam piece to set in the center and poke my pics into.  The decorations on the outside are foam cutouts from JoAnn Fabrics.  They stick real good- you can't remove them if you change your mind (yes I tried) LOL   I used some of that shredded paper to stuff around the pics.  The pics came from Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

There are cute little pinwheel pics too....and they work....these were spinning as I took the pictures!

I was late going to the stores so I only got what was left.  I would have liked twice as many pics as I got, but overall I'm happy.
