I love the 4th of July. It’s probably my third favorite holiday, and definitely my favorite summer holiday. I love everything about it.I can’t think of a better way to spend a hot summer night than eating hamburgers and blowing things up in the street. It’s just so…American.
The main requirement of Independence Day is that you use as much red, white, and blue themed things as possible. Even foods must be adorned with American flags or patriotic flair or you are doing it wrong. Here’s a fun, easy, and inexpensive little embellishment for your food flair needs.
All you need are a few dollar store items:
White, white, or blue tinsel garland
Double stick tape
Skewers or toothpicks
All you have to do is cut a piece of tape and wrap it around one end of your skewer or toothpick. Then cut 2 inch piece of garland and wrap it around the taped end. Fluff it up so it looks like a firework or a sparkler! (Except this one doesn’t result in 2nd degree burns.)
Stick it on a cupcake or something equally as delicious for ultra Americana cuteness.
Happy 4th of July!
