Tut Tuesday: Wooden Fruit Cups

April 17, 2012

 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I always try to do a fancy dinner or a big brunch. Fruit is always fun to serve and these wooden cups are a fun way to dish up to your main Mama. Inspired by this post, these wooden cups were found at Michael’s for $2.99 for a pack of 4! They also come with an adorable wooden tray. Read the full how-to after the jump.

You will need:

  • Martha Stewart Glitter Paint in Antique Silver
  • Paintbrush
  • Wooden plant boxes found at your local craft store ($2.99 for 4 at Michael’s)

 

Paint each side of the box with the glitter paint leaving the top edge unfinished. Let dry and paint one more coat to really glitterify.

Once dry, fill with assorted fruit, add some colorful cutlery, and enjoy your gorgeous new sparkly serveware!

 

**Happy Tuesday**

    LOVE!! We will be driving back home from our beach trip on mothers day this year! Sad to leave the beach, and sad not to have a “mom day off” like I usual get on mothers day!!!!

      Mandy,

      I go to Michael’s twice a week and they know me by name! It’s a sickness, I tell you. A sickness.

      Thanks, Victoria! These were so ridiculously easy to make, and ridiculously cute! (If I may say so myself. :))
