Memorial Day is right around the corner and I am always looking for simple DIY patriotic decorations I can add to my home. So when I saw these red, white and blue candle holders From House to Home, I knew I had to share this with you all.

To make them, add about 2 cups of rice to a Ziploc bag. Then add about 20 drops of blue food coloring.

Close the bag and shake the rice until it is coated with the color. If you want the color to be darker, you can add a few more drops and shake it again.

Repeat with the red.

Then pour the rice in layers into a tall glass or mason jar and add a candle.

See, how simple is that? The candle holders look really pretty on a red tablecloth for 4th of July (or Memorial Day).
