DIY 4th of July centerpiece

I found this cute thing on Pintrest. I tell you, people are just so creative. They are using rice to create this wonderful centerpiece for your 4th of July party.

Directions to make it:

  1. Separate rice into desired amounts per layer. We used 2 cups of rice for each color.
  2. Squirt food color into rice, you might need to use the back of the spoon to evenly distribute the food color throughout the rice. We used several drops to achieve a deep color, use more or less for the desired depth of color. Be sure to use metal or glass bowls and spoons as food color can stain some plastics.
  3. Spread each color on baking sheets to dry (could take about 15-30 minutes depending on humidity).
  4. Layer in jars for desired pattern and order of colors.
  5. Gently settle a votive or small pillar candle in the middle of the rice.
