It's the Fourth of July -- and to me that means trips to the beach, backyard entertaining and blasts of color! I also joke that I'm actually named after our beautiful country, America; after all, I amERICA!
A truly crafty holiday host loves to impress with every last detail. The cool curves of windswept driftwood are the perfect ingredient for bringing a bit of seaside style to your Independence Day fete. So take inspiration from nature and art to create a centerpiece that's equal parts organic and elegant...with a modern pop of neon of course!

To create: gather driftwood from the beach, or perhaps find at your local craft store or purchase from a floral supply store. Double knot brightly colored string to an area of the driftwood and wrap tightly. Continue with your other colors of rope and create a color block pattern in sporadic areas of the driftwood. After finished wrapping, double knot, snip with scissors, and use a glue to seal. To create an over-the-top tabletop candelabra, use strong wood glue to bond together, holding in place till dry. You may even want to use a paper tape to hold together, which will act like a vice and help hold together during the dry time. Lastly, attach mini tea lights onto the wood using super glue.
This DIY will surely light up your 4th of July!
