How to make a Table Centerpiece with book page STARS

I know Independence Day is over now but I'm not quite ready for red, white, blue and stars to go away yet.  Stars are such a symbolic image for our great nation and I still want to do one more project to celebrate them.  I whipped up a quick idea for a table centerpiece

I love to decorate and craft.  But when I make something, I like it to be useful.  And it cannot interfere with our life.  When I was thinking about table centerpieces, I had to keep all of that in mind because no centerpiece will work if it prevents us from eating at our table.

Supplies needed for Book Page Stars Table Centerpiece




Use star and circle punches and book page paper to make table centerpiece


How to make Book Page Star Jars



From recipe book page paper, cut hand drawn stars and use the star punch to get smaller stars.  Use the circle punch to make a circle with a star on the inside.

Add rice to the jars and then add candles.

Ta dah!  I grouped all of the jars onto my table.

It adds interest to place them on different levels.  I displayed these jars on my table with my collection of repurposed metal pieces onto a farmhouse table board for height.

I used DIY glass candle holders for height as well.

This book page star table centerpiece was very easy and inexpensive to whip up.  It only required supplies I had on hand and probably took a total of 15 minutes to do.  Its neutral colored so it can stay up and displayed for any month and season.

  1. The great thing about living in Utah is that you can keep the patriotic decor out the whole month of July. This one is great though because it can be used all year round.

    1. I miss living in Utah for so many reasons, and that is definitely one of them. Have a great day Meg!
