Canada Day Centerpiece

Canada Day Centerpiece

Happy June everyone!! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by! Speaking of which… did you know that Canada Day is only one month away! Here’s hoping we can wake up my daughter for her first fireworks show this year :) Speaking of Canada Day, I’m joining a few amazing blogger this month for their #MakeIt Challenge, where we are challenged to make something along the same theme. This time the theme was “Patriotic”, so I’ve whipped up this simple Canada Day Centerpiece. Canada Day Centerpiece

This project probably could have been a lot easier… but I chose to do it the hard way (by accident!). I’ve seen a few mason jar centerpieces across the web (including this gorgeous one by Maison de Pax), but I have yet to see a Canadian flag… so I figured I would make one!

I already had the perfect red and white spray paint colours… so I decided to spray paint my jars. Which took a few coats!

Next, came the hard part: the iconic maple leaf. Originally I printed the maple leaf out on vinyl using my Cricut Explore, and planned to stick it to the jar and spray paint the red leaf on top. Unfortunately this plan failed miserably… the vinyl wouldn’t stick to the spray paint I used. I can’t imagine free-hand painting that maple leaf… not to mention my paint probably wouldn’t match my spray paint… so I was back to the drawing board!

Instead I decided to use the vinyl maple leaf from my Cricut Explore as a stencil to trace the maple leaf onto a thin piece of plywood. Then I cut out the maple leaf using my scroll saw, and then I spray painted that maple leaf red – DIY win!

I attached the maple leaf to the jars and filled them up with beautiful white flowers :)
I hope this simple Canada Day project inspired you!
