RedVines for All ~

DIY Entertaining | Inspiration

I thought I would re-post this super easy DIY idea for the upcoming 4th. Last year these were a hit - they are definitely a crowd pleaser - gotta love those Red Vines!
I thought it would be fun to have something for kids (and adults) to pick up and enjoy while watching the fireworks this Sunday. I recently picked up some patriotic scrapbook paper at JoAnn's -

I simply cut the paper into strips, each a few inches wide -

 And began wrapping the paper around these yummy guys - and sealed the wrap with a little double stick tape.

 Super easy, inexpensive and fun for all ages...I mean, who doesn't like Red Vines?



Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
