Patriotic Place Setting

blog - patriotic placesetting1 - Copy
Today I created a fun patriotic place setting for a summer BBQ. I started with a little peat pot (3.5 inches) and brushed on some heirloom white paint with a sponge brush.  Then I wrapped some jute around the pot, using hot glue on the ends to hold it in place. Finally, I created a sign on my computer for a 1-inch key tag and attached it to the jute string using red and white bakers twine.  
Inside the pot, I used tissue paper (could use a napkin) and a dollar store flag for extra color along with the plastic silverware.

How fun would it be to use chalkboard contact paper on the key tag and white a name on the tag?!  Next time…
Thanks for visiting!
