I love the USA.. through and through. I also really enjoy celebrating it on the 4th of July. I feel very blessed to live in this country, and wouldn't have it any other way.
I also really like a Red, White, and Blue color combination - and plan to cover my house in it for Independence Day this year. Oh, and did I mention it is our first holiday in a house after almost 6 years of marriage? I have been celebrating that fact for an entire month straight. It is wonderful.
So - to help have our 4th of July celebration be down to the last detail perfect, I had to dress up the utensils with a little friendly acrylic paint.
All you will need:
Tape (I used plain ol' clear tape)
Red & Blue Acrylic Paint
First, I got a piece of tape, and cut it long-ways in half. I wanted thinner stripes than the complete width of the tape. I then placed the tape on my spoon and painted over the top. Be careful to not paint anywhere on your utensil that will be touching food. Gently remove the tape and let the paint dry!
This was a very easy craft, and I was able to complete my entire party set while watching a show with my family. Have fun!
