Set the mood for watching the fireworks with your hubby this Independence Day with these July 4th Ambient Lighting Crafts. You can recycle some old wine glasses to make these Fourth of July projects. Decorate them with patriotic colors and place a tea light inside to create a cozy glow.
These patriotic crafts would make great outdoor lighting for your patio or balcony this summer. You could also buy some more wine glasses and paint them to match every season - pastel blue for spring, bright yellow for summer, and burnt orange for fall. 

Estimated Cost$11-$20

These up cycled wine glass patriotic ambient lights are very pretty and what a great way to give new life to mismatched or older glasses that may have a little chip or be etched from hard water...still structurally good, but not so great for drinking out of. These glasses can also hold those battery's pearled little flame tea light candles if you are a nit worried about an open flame. Another pretty option would be to outline your color blocks with black for a stained glass effect. So fun and thanks for sharing!
