Red White and Blue Food Decor and Craft Ideas



My Red White and Blue post will have you be singing a Toby Keith tune and give your party the perfect added patriotic touch!

I recently shared these Patriotic Party Lights over at Houseologie last month, and decided to share them today with my readers for this blog hop!

Using just some mini red cups, paint, and string lights, these patriotic party lights are super easy to make and will be the perfect added touch to your outdoor decor all summer long!


DIY Patriotic Party Lights



  • 1 pack of 20 mini red solo cups
  • Acrylic paint or chalk paint in colors white and blue (I am a fan of using what you have on hand)
  • Drill
  • Paint brush
  • Painters tape
  • String lights
Step 1: Use painters tape and tape the edges between the colors to separate the red white and blue.  I only taped the top part where I wanted the red and the white separated, as I just got impatient and wanted to get on with the show!  I would just take the extra time and tape every where unless you are very patient and have a steady hand.  Once it is all taped, paint two coats of the middle white and the bottom blue, leaving the top just the way it is as it is already the color you need it to be…red!

Step 2:  When it is all dry, take off the tape and then drill holes in the top where you will put the lights in. step 3
Step 3:  Stick the string of lights in the holes that you drilled.  I could only find string lights in a pack of 50, so I just put a cup on about every second light since I only had 20 cups. DIY outdoor lights
That is it!  How easy is that?!  Now start singing that Toby Keith song “Red Solo Cup, I’ll fill you up, let’s have a party!” and put up your patriotic party lights just in time to celebrate the 4th of July!   Patriotic Party Lights   patriotic outdoor party lights
