Add a little something special to your Memorial Day or 4th of July Celebration Table!
Cut 3- 3-in. pieces from a dowel. Hammer a nail in one end to make a hole.
Cut 3 – 2-in half circles. I folded mine in half to make cutting easier and to use as a center marker. Using the folded center bring the two sides together making a cone and tape.
Paint your dowels, hot glue the top to the dowel and insert pipe cleaners into the hole you made with a nail.
Hot glue a skewer to the back. This will serve as what you stick into the sand.
I used letter stamps for the name. The bucket is filled with sand.
To add a little more flare to your table you can make your own umbrella by cutting paper (I used scrapbook paper) into a desired circle, cut a slit from the edge to the center, bring the sides together to form an umbrella and staple closed. Stick a skewer through the center.
This is the size of circle I used. Umbrella Template
