I love Krylon’s Mystery Box challenges. Krylon sends out a box of inexpensive items and asks bloggers to make something unique!!


This month’s challenge was a … challenge!

Here is the box of items that I received. I also asked for project ideas on my Instagram feed!

I knew I wanted to make something festive and patriotic!

This is how I made our Patriotic Centerpiece! (And read on for the FREE printables – in three sizes!!)

I spray painted the shelf with the Krylon white and let it sit overnight.

Then I took the shelf and added painter’s tape, creating stripes.

Then I spray painted the whole shelf with the red Krylon paint.

Once the paint was dry, I had a red shelf with white stripes.

I also took the mason jars and spray painted them with the Krylon blue metallic color. And I have to say – I love this shimmery spray paint!

When the blue shimmer metallic  paint was dry, I hot glued small stars to the mason jars.

I spray painted the stars white.

I then made a little printable that goes with the project. It has ombre letters which I think is pretty!

I printed of the printable and then put it in the 5×7 frame and suspended it above the shelf with some rods that I had already painted red.

I think it’s kind of a fun little project! 


And here are the printables!

I’ve made them in 3 sizes for you – 8×10, 5×7 and 4×6. Just print on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and trim to fit! As always, these are for personal use only.

  1. Your printable makes such a nice focal point! We’re featuring it our Independence Day Round Up at Reviews, Chews & How-Tos: http://rchreviews.blogspot.com/2014/06/independence-day-diy-round-up.html Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Did you buy or make the rosettes? I am thinking of making these for my Canada Day celebration Space in my home. If you made them how big is the paper strip to make them?
