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 Colorblock DIY 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…

Materials Needed To Make Colorblock DIY Food Domes

4 paint brushes — One for every color

Paint colors of your choice — I used Glidden®  paint’s Pastorale Jade, Tropical Coral, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Peach a La Mode.

Painter’s tape

Hot glue gun and clear hot glue sticks

Napkin rings — I used geometric ones gifted from my friend Kim! Or you can also use knobs of your choice to use as the handles.

Plain woven baskets — Make sure they are big enough to cover your dishes.

Steps To Make Colorblock DIY Food Domes

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).

If you don’t have a white basket, no worries! Just paint the entire basket white first.

Let it set to dry for about an hour. And then, tape for the remaining colors.

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 one coat on whatever basket you may be using.

Let your paint set for a few hours just to make sure it’s nice and dry.

Then, hot glue your knob or napkin ring in the center to use as a handle for your Colorblock DIY Food Domes.
