Tips & Tricks for this 4th of July Decor DIY Flower Vase
- To prevent ink from smearing I recommend applying a thin coat of Mod Podge prior to adhering your label to the bottle. This will give your label some weight and make it easier to apply and prevent the ink from running.
- Depending on the design of your bottle or can you may want to add more twine
- Once you apply the label to your bottle allow it to dry then apply another thin coat of sealer.
- You can use the bottle right away while it dries just be CAREFUL when you pour water inside for your flowers so that it doesn’t get onto the label before it dries or the label will bubble up.

- Empty glass bottle (or tin can)

How to Make a 4th of July Flower Vase
- Download & print this 4TH OF JULY LABEL out onto regular printer paper.
- Cut out your label
3. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge by dabbing lightly onto your label. Covering the top of the image to seal. ((I have found it much quicker and easier to spray labels with 2 coats of spray sealer vs Mod Podge)
4. While the label is drying take some twine and wrap it around the top of the bottle to cover the threads.
5. Once the label has dried (about a half-hour) it’s time to center your label & start gluing it on.
6. Apply a thin coat of sealer directly onto the bottle, lay your label on top, and smooth the label out. Keep applying the sealer onto small sections until your label is completely applied.
7. If you are in a time crunch you can fill your bottle and it can go on display now & just add the final coat of sealer to the entire bottle at a later time.
Be careful filling the bottle w water so it doesn’t get on the label if it’s not fully sealed. I used a funnel to add water and it made it easier.
If you have time then apply another thin coat of sealer like you did the first time & you are good to go!
