Easy Fourth of July Centerpiece

I'm obviously super late in actually decorating for the Fourth around here. 

I've been making fourth of July projects the past couple weeks but haven't gotten around to actually pulling my decor out and getting the house looking festive :) 
Don't tell me I'm the only one!!

I decided to get our table looking all patriotic today so I threw together a quick & easy centerpiece using a few new things & a few ones I made last year. 

Watcha think? 

Isn't it fun? 
It definitely got me in the mood to sit on a blanket, slap away mosquitoes & watch some pretty fireworks!

I used this fun tutorial to make the cute paper rockets and stuck them on some craft skewers I had. 
They sit nicely in a dollar store vase that I spray painted red like I did these guys
I also tore a strip of linen to wrap around the vase with a cute printable from the fabulous I Heart Naptime.  

That adorable chalkboard was in the dollar bin at Michaels. 
I know I'm going to find a million ways to use them!!

Remember my fun printable from last year? 
I pulled it out to add to the red, white & blue decor!!

I used a random piece of scrap wood from the garage to make a quick 'freedom' block. 
You know I had to add a splash of aqua somewhere!!
I spraypainted it white first, added some letter stickers and then brush-painted it aqua. 
After it dried a little, I peeled the stickers off & then distressed. 

I still love this subway art from Eighteen25 from last year. 
I pulled it out of my decor box too. 
The red candle was a random find from something so it made an appearance as well :) 

I love a simple & easy grouping of holiday decor!!

Just don't judge me because it's all I have up :) 

Have you decorated for the Fourth yet this year?
What are you most looking forward to?
