4th of July Salad Tongs- DIY

I wanted to share an easy 4th of July idea using stuff you probably have around the house. This is a great way to spruce up your salad this holiday!

All you need are salad tongs (preferably wooden), painter’s tape, white paint, blue paint and red star stickers (teachers, anyone?)

First, wrap painter’s tape around the top of your tongs where you want your paint to stop.

If you have a can of leftover white paint from a household project, this is easiest. Just dip the tongs directly into the can stopping just past your tape.

Hang to dry.

After that dries completely, dip into a small container of blue paint to just cover the ends. Let dry.

Once that is all dried, stick red star stickers around the handle.

Paint over the decorated area with Mod Podge (a glue/sealant sold at any craft store) to seal it all in. Let dry and you are now ready for a party!
