Truth be told, I don’t usually decorate for Memorial Day. I also don’t usually decorate for Fourth of July because I’m always in Utah. But for some reason, I saw my little flags in the hutch drawer and I really wanted to do something with them. I also wanted to do something with my old jars. It was time to try a Memorial Day Craft!
Memorial Day Craft – Memorial Day Ideas
I thought about what I could fill the jars with that would be festive for either Memorial day or Fourth of July. I wanted to use something I already had. I grabbed my bag of rice and food coloring and colored me some rice.
I wanted to do about 5 of these and set the outdoor table,with a long line of jars. But it was raining, so my indoor display will have to do.

This was the simplest idea I have ever done. I poured the rice in a glass bowl, dropped a few drops of food coloring right on the rice and mixed until well blended. Once blended, I poured into my jars by color. Done!
The beauty is that I can leave this up til after the fourth of July. Sweet!
