Easy Decorated Silverware Tutorial Using Washi Tape

Who is having a barbecue this 4th of July?   (Pretty much everyone in the US, I'm guessing).  If you're looking for an insanely easy to to add a special little touch to your celebration, try these washi-tape decorated plastic silverware.

All you need are plastic forks, knives, and spoons, and washi tape.  

I'm guessing you can figure out the instructions:  stick the tape on the silverware.  Ta da!  Done!

I tried this with both nicer plastic silverware (the red) and the super cheap variety (the white), and I ended up liking the incredibly inexpensive type better.  The slightly smaller size of the cheap white variety worked perfectly with the size of the standard washi tape.

I wish I'd thought of this for the Sprinkles birthday party!  Wouldn't these, with the polka dot washi tape, have been absolutely perfect?  

My only caution is to do this the day of the party.  After a couple days, the washi tape wants to peel off and doesn't look as awesome.  Luckily, this takes only seconds to do, so it is actually a feasible project to do on the day of an event.
