DIY // Colorblock food domes


DIY colorblock food domes | DIY colorblock food domes | With summer in full swing, dinner al fresco is our go-to any time we get half a chance. The only catch is that Texas bugs are about as unforgiving as middle school dodge ball, which leaves me with no choice but to bring on the power of a repurposed basket.

These DIY colorblock food domes prove two things, never underestimate the power of paint and that no bug will come between me and a cupcake if I have anything (DIY) to do with it. The latter of which I’m not always proud of…

First, use painter’s tape across the center of the basket to serve as the line dividing each color, then paint the left and right sides of the basket two different colors (see my exact color choices above).

The good news is that Glidden paint is super easy to use on a lot of different surfaces, so you should have no problem doing so in one coat on whatever basket you may be using.

    oooh, those nasty bugs, I hate them too!

    And what a neat idea for avoiding those critters among other great reasons for making these fantastic food domes!

    Gotta be on the top of my list of one of your best DIY’s (of course I tend to say that a lot, dont I?) This project would be a great teaching event at your studio.
