July 4th Party Idea: DIY Sparkly Red, White & Blue Barware—Easy Craft!

/ Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Party City sells these disposable red gingham cups. Add some Elmer's Glue and blue sparkles to quickly customize them for July 4th! I was drawn to polka dots and cups proudly sporting "USA" but this would be a great way to label guests' cups for your celebration...

MAKES: 8 cups

1 to 2 spoonfuls blue sparkles
1 disposable bowl
1 package red gingham cups
1 bottle Elmer’s Glue or similar

1. Cover a work surface with parchment paper (for easy clean up). Spoon blue sparkles into a disposable bowl. 
2. For each red gingham cup, make a design with the Elmer’s Glue (such as a name, firework shape, or USA)! Spoon sparkles onto the glue over the bowl and tap to remove any excess. Let try at least 1 hour before using.

What are you plans? Hosting or attending any big barbecue blowouts? I'd love to know! Our family always serves extra crispy hot dogs, garlic shrimp skewers and gazpacho—I cannot wait! What are you planning to make for July 4th?  xo Erin
