Allison’s winning answer to “If you had a million dollars how would you spend it?” was…
“I would pay off all my debt and fix up my house the way I want it. Then I would save for my kids college and my retirement. Ok and I would probably take a pretty cool vacation.”

Are you entertaining this Independence Day? Try these easy DIY centerpieces!
STYROFOAM Brand Foam:
1. Cut six 13″ lengths of the wide red/white ribbon.
2. Glue two pieces of ribbon around the sides of each cube to cover. One piece at the top and one at the bottom, slightly overlapping where they meet. The top and bottom will be left bare.
3. Pull the hydrangea blossoms from the stems and glue a blossom into the top of each cube. Cut the small roses from the stems and glue four or five roses into each hydrangea blossom.
4. Make three small bows using the blue ribbon and glue one to the front of each cube.
5. To make the stars: Draw assorted sizes of stars onto cardstock paper and cut out. Pin the cardstock stars onto the foam sheet and cut out using the serrated knife. Use the scrap pieces of foam as sanding blocks to sand the edges of the stars smooth. Paint the stars with the acrylic paints and let dry. Pin blue ribbon around the outside edge of three larger stars and use as the base for the cubes.
