DIY American Flag Berry Kabobs


Happy Fourth of July! I saw these American flag berry kabobs on Pinterest a couple weeks ago and fell in love with the idea…so I decided to give them a try! I know it would have been good to post this tutorial sooner, but I’m a last-minute kind of girl and didn’t get around to making them until last night (sorry!). Hopefully some of you are last-minuters too. If so, you still have plenty of time to make these! I promise, they are reeeaaally easy...and so “berry" cute, don't you think?

DIY berry kabobs for the Fourth of July

Wash your berries beforehand and make sure they’re thoroughly dry before you start. My raspberries were still somewhat wet when I started, which made some of the marshmallows wet and squishy (ew).

Slide the berries and marshmallows onto the skewers. I used 17 skewers total. For the first seven, I did eight blueberries, then five marshmallows and four raspberries (alternating). For the remaining ten skewers, I did all raspberries and marshmallows. Except…I didn’t realize until later that I actually did too many stripes!! WHOOPS. For future reference, you should actually use a few less berries so you have thirteen stripes instead of sixteen. Hahaha.

Hope you all have a great Fourth of July. We’re planning on going to a parade today, then a barbecue (where I’m bringing these kabobs), and then we’ll watch fireworks at night. It should be fun! What do you have planned for today?

P.S. Also check out the star-spangled watermelon that I made last year.

      Agreed! And they were a huge hit with the kids in our family. Marshmallows and berries...can't go wrong.
