Make a Dessert Basket for Summer Parties
- wicker or wooden basket with handle
- red, white or blue ribbon
- hot glue gun and sticks
- floral foam or Styrofoam
- straw or shredded-paper filler
Line basket with napkins so that color shows through the holes. Fill basket with blocks of floral foam (for dessert on sticks), possibly cutting pieces to fill entire basket.
Using a hot glue gun, decorate basket with ric-rac ribbon in your desired pattern.
Once all glue is dry, fill top of basket with your shredded filler. Be sure to cover any visible floral foam.
Stick dessert into basket as desired, into floral foam if necessary. Enjoy at home or be the center star of your block party's dessert table.
