Apothecary Jars with a Patriotic Theme:
-Twisler Licorice bite size
-Starburst Licorice (only the blue and sliced up)
I also added:
-Silver Balloon Weights
-Cut out cardboard stars painted in Red and Blue
-And strips of fabric to tie them
All super cheap and easy. In another room I also used the "seasonal" marshmallows that are stars in red white and blue, and I considered gum balls...there are tons of candy options!
