A Patriotic Centerpiece That Rocks!

A few years ago I signed up to receive daily organizing tips from Martha Stewart via email - I had to do something to keep motivated! So Tuesday's tip was all about lining your flower beds with river rocks to prevent mud from splashing when it rains...genius! For some reason the idea of using river rocks with flowers inspired me to craft. So, using Martha's useful tip, I decided to make a patriotic centerpiece.

First I rounded up a short glass vase and a glass votive...



I then placed the votive inside the vase and filled the votive with water.



Next I spray painted some river rocks in patriotic colors...



and then placed them inside the vase around the votive in layers.



Finally, I snipped a few flowers from my garden and the centerpiece was complete - too easy!



I hope this inspires you to create something using river rocks - please send me a pic if it does!

I use candy to do this type of look, this idea is genius and can be reused over and over again. It has for sure inspired me!
