Hello there, Mod Podge fans! This is Linda, from burlap+blue, and today I’m sharing an easy way to embellish simple and inexpensive tin pails for your Fourth of July celebration. While perusing the Dollar Section at Target, I ran across some simple tin pails with July Fourth-inspired ribbon strung through them. I loved them, but wanted to add a little something extra to gussy them up for my Fourth of July table.
Step 1: Take your scrapbook paper, and cut into small rectangular pieces. I chose these red/white and blue/white striped papers that I found at Hobby Lobby. You can use a paper cutter, but I liked the different widths I got when I used scissors.
Step 2: Take one of your pails, add a bit of Mod Podge, and start applying your strips! This went super fast…I seriously wished I had bought more pails to embellish! Once dry, apply two coats of Mod Podge to seal, making sure to let the pail dry between coats.
I will be using mine for mini-flags, wooden utensils, and paper straws. You can also use these as placecards/favors and fill with goodies for your guests to use during the party or take home with them.
