DIY: Decorative Party Food Picks

DIY, Entertaining, FoodLibby RasmussenComment

So the other day I was making these Mini Chicken and Waffle Sliders and realized that the toothpicks I was using were a little well, boring.  Then I remembered spotting some adorable ideas on Etsy.  See here here and here. With limited supplies and time, I took to my craft supply box and got started.  I seem to always have a stockpile of streamers and tissue paper in my apartment, so I decided to make these tissue paper food picks - inspired by my favorite, Studio DIY. 

Supplies

Toothpicks
Tissue paper or Streamers
Scissors
Glue

I chose to use streamers for timing and convenience and was shocked at how good they looked. Better yet, they really were so easy.  Consider this my next sitting-on-the-couch-craft-project. Thanks Studio DIY for yet another great craft idea!

How cute are thee DIY pillows from Kate Spade? Such an easy way to incorporate a little whimsy to a couch or chair.  We love what Kristin Jackson from hunted interior did with the stripe fabric here for her daughter's room.

It's really easy to find fabric by the yard on Etsy.  Saves you a trip to the craft or fabric store!
What fabric would you choose?  We love this Palm Leaf Print (of course) and better yet, it's on sale!
