DIY Fourth of July Centerpiece

Nothing says summer like the 4th of July and red, white and blue! My favorite way to kick off the season is by hosting a barbecue with friends and family. This patriotic candle holder would look great displayed on a buffet or out on the patio after sunset. Best of all, it only cost $3 to make! I got the pail from the $1 section of target. The candle and white beans are both from the dollar store. All you need to do is put a small layer of beans in the pail, place the candle in the middle, then pour more beans around it. Sand or coffee beans would also be cute!
