It’s easy to put together our patriotic tub for keeping the drinks on ice – and since the decor isn’t permanent, you can change up the design for every holiday and occasion! Try this patriotic tub for your Fourth of July, Memorial Day or Labor Day party.
- Galvanized ice bucket
- Cutting board
- Wax paper
- Blue painter’s tape
- Star image
- X-ACTO knife
- Kitchen towel
- Red, white, and blue Jones Soda
Step 1: Place a cutting board or safe cutting surface on a table, cover with wax paper, and then add strips of blue painter’s tape on the top.
Step 2: Print out a picture of a star (we used an image we found online) and trace your star onto the painters tape.
Step 3: Cut out stars using X-ACTO knife.
Step 4: Peel stars off of wax paper and place on ice bucket.
If your ice bucket doesn’t come with a bottle opener attached, we recommend tying a bottle opener to one of the handles with a ribbon so it’s easy for guests to find. Also, we suggest having a decorative kitchen towel on hand so guests can dry their hands after selecting beverages from the ice bucket.
You can also make a miniature ice bucket with fruit and star ice cubes. The star shapes come courtesy of a novelty tray, and the fruity cubes are the result of adding frozen raspberries and blueberries to the water filled ice tray before freezing.
