Dollar Tree 4th of July Craft Mason Jar Votives – supplies needed

Make some easy 4th of July decorations!

These America flag Mason jar votives will brighten up your home or patio! Better yet, Dollar Tree has the majority of the craft supplies you’ll need for a frugal, simple craft anyone can do! What a fun little project to celebrate 4th of July.

Check the Dollar Tree for supplies first.

I already had Mason jars on hand, but Dollar Tree has jars if needed. The battery operated candles and colored sand can be found at Dollar Tree, too. My store didn’t have small flags, but the dollar area at Target has three small flags for just $1. Keep in mind, you can also use bigger flags and jars to make these on a larger scale if desired.

2.) Pour a couple inches of sand into jar. (If you want to use white rice from the pantry or sand from outside, that’s another option, too.)

I love these patriotic votive jars so much! Aren’t they fun? This is something that takes just a few minutes each to put together and there’s no paint or gluing involved! I think a few of these would make a nice hostess gift this summer, too.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
