Hi! I’m Angela from Handmade in the Heartland and I’m excited to be sharing a fun project and recipe with you today. I love to entertain friends and family in my home with recipes that taste delicious and look beautiful. I don’t know about you but I totally jumped aboard the washi tape bandwagon and started
hoarding collecting rolls of it about a year ago, so I really love when I think up something cute I can do with it. It was so easy to pop it onto these toothpicks and I love how it takes a normal snack and makes it look so cute!
Making the washi tape toothpicks is simple, you’ll need toothpicks, scissors, and washi tape. I bought these unique shaped bamboo toothpicks at target and I really liked the shape of them for wrapping the washi tape because they had a flat front instead of round.
I placed a piece of washi tape on the toothpick and then trimmed it with scissors right above where the toothpick curved out to be thicker. I only wanted the tape on the strait skinny part of the toothpick. I tried to place the center of the washi tape along the toothpick and then I wrapped the sides around to the back. Easy peesy friends and in minutes you’ve got the cutest toothpicks you have ever seen!
I chose to use bright summer colors of washi tape because I knew that I wanted to make little fruit kabobs with it. I love how the washi compliments the bright colors of fruit and creates a perfect summer snack!
The only thing better than fresh fruit is fresh fruit with a delicious fruit dip! I created this citrus flavored fruit dip because I love a light but delicious addition to a party fruit tray. It’s simple to whip up and will please all your guests.
