DIY 4th of July Decorations (Uncle Sam Hat Candle Holders)

Sharing is caring!

Uncle Sam Hat
I love creating DIY 4th of July Decorations! I made these cute Uncle Sam hat candle holders out of mini-terracotta pots. I thought it would be fun to use create some of my themed decorations to add a patriotic flair to our 4th of July celebration.  I use battery operated tea lights to make a safe and festive display that will stay illuminated into the night.
