I absolutely LOVE the way my center piece turned out and it was super easy to boot! First I took a large terra potta pot base and painted it blue and red on the outside and white on the inside. I then took a large votive and glued star shaped rhinestones to it. For the firecrackers we wrapped toilet paper rolls and a paper towel roll in decorative paper and put decorative toothpicks into the tops. My daughter decorated the one in the front for girl scouts and it just fit in perfectly! And we threw in a 4th decoration we already had just to help fill it in!
