Patriotic Treat Cup Flowers

I was in the mood to create something in red, white and blue for our kitchen.  Using a glass pedestal container I had already I placed as with a piece of Styrofoam in the bottom. I covered the Styrofoam with some leftover napkins from the last Fourth of July.

I took some treat cups from Wynn's polka dot party and cut a few times to create a flower shape. I only had a few remaining and wanted to find some way to use them.

I flattened the cups out and added a sticker to the center. I glued them to wooden skewers. I also cut out some star shapes using a cookie cutter as a template. Once everything was secure to the skewers I pushed them into the Styrofoam piece in the container.


A little bit of red, white and blue for my kitchen and I only had to use leftover party and craft supplies for it. I am still on a mission to use mainly what I have lying around the house instead of bringing more stuff in. Maybe it is the nesting phase already?
Enjoy your day! Thanks for always stopping by and checking out what I am sharing here at Our Pinteresting Family!
