Do you need some fast, inexpensive decor for the 4th of July or other party? You do?! Well, this idea is right up your alley.
It’s simple to create a festive 4th of July utensil holder using a few items that you probably already have on hand! I’m using a little pail that I got for Easter to hold forks for my 4th of July table. All it needed was a quick makeover. First, I went through my crafty stash of buttons and picked out all the red and blue ones that I had. I chose these small ones since my pail is small. I arranged them in the shape of the number four.
(Don’t have a little pail? Use a plastic cup, mug or other jar you have sitting around. If you use a very light cup, weigh it down by adding some pennies or something weighty and covering them with a napkin or other cloth and then add your silverware.)
Don’t have transfer tape? Don’t worry about it! Just stick a Glue Dot on the back of your buttons and apply them to your pail (or other holder) one at a time.
If you do use transfer tape, just be careful as you apply all your sticky buttons at once. Don’t forget to press them in place for a good hold. Carefully peel off the transfer tape once you’ve got it all in place.
After you’ve got all of your buttons applied, you’re done! Ta da! That was a fast, festive makeover, wasn’t it?
