Memorial Day DIY

Looking for a cute DIY memorial day craft?  We love to party at One Strange Bird, so we wanted to try our hand at making some patriotic tableware.  We just used some very simple craft items from Michaels and Target, two of our favorite places to get crafty supplies. The project was inspired by a confetti punch we found at Michael's and HAD to have :)

Use your tray to serve some All American Classics for Memorial Day or the 4th of July. Here, we styled with some yummy apply pie from our sweet neighbors A Baker's Tale!  

 

Happy crafting and partying,
