Memorial Day project - DIY - LAURA'S little PARTY

Memorial Day project - DIY

May 24, 2013

I love celebrating for Memorial Day! 
BBQ'ing, swimming, eating on the patio, etc.
And what better way to welcome your guests, and the official 
start of summer, than with a fun tub of flip-flops & festive stars!
I created this project for $7 

Here's what I did!
I found a package of stars at my local Party City for $1.99
I found skewers around the house, and raided my collection of washi tape.
I had planned on painting the skewers, but thought washi tape would be easier!

 I covered each skewer with my festive washi tape. Very simple. 

 The width of the tape fit the skewers perfectly! And look how much cuter they are!

 I got my glue gun, and started gluing the star to my skewers.

 You can mix + match any color combo. 
Festive ribbon would look really cute as well!
Here is how my stars stick came out.

 I went to my party supply room aka: the garage, to look for a container.
I found a galvanized tub that I used for a previous event.
And my krinkle paper stash is just out of control, so I knew I'd find the color I needed.

I hot glued some paper to the front, to make it look a bit more festive...

 I then added a little star that I had left over from my star skewers.
Super simple!

I picked up some cute flip-flps, and some green craft foam, 
from Dollar Tree. They always have everything I need for parties!
I spent $5 on everything you see here.
{I only needed 1 foam brick for this project}

I put the craft foam in the center of the tub, and arranged the flip-flops around the tub.

 I added my festive star skewers, and....

 I now have a cute + festive tub for my Memorial Day guests to enjoy!
Mmmm, I can smell the steaks already!
