Quick and easy food flags for your red, white, and blue festivities!
- Patriotic ribbon of your choice
- 5-6″ wooden skewers
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
Cut ribbon into four inch strips. Fold each piece in half and lightly crease with your finger tip to mark the center.
Unfold ribbon and lay right side down on work surface. Using a hot glue gun, place a bead of glue in the center.
Working quickly, gently press the blunt tip of a wooden skewer into hot glue, then carefully wrap ribbon around stick until edges align.
If necessary, use a small dot of glue in between ribbon layers to hold them together.
Simply neaten ribbon ends with a sharp pair of scissors and you’re finished.
I told you they were quick and easy!
These longer food picks are ideal for topping layered desserts, mile high sandwiches, and colossal burgers…
However, toothpicks can certainly be substituted for flags used to decorate cupcakes and bite-sized foods.
