How To: Food Cover

Food Covers are a perfect way to keep bugs off your food while entertaining outside.  If you have a bit of a crafty side, this project just might be for you!! 

How To Make Your Own Food Covers:

Bill of Materials:
Sheer Fabric
Wire Basket
Needle and Thread

I found the a sheer white curtain (fabric) and a few wire baskets at the thrift store and the rest were in my “craft box”.  This whole project cost me about 3 dollars and 2 hours from start to finish.

Step 1:  Take off any parts of the basket that you don’t want to be part of the food cover (I removed the handles from my wire basket (and then I used one for the food cover handle)

Step 2:  Cut Fabric to cover the wire basket.  

Step 3: Attached Fabric to basket.   All I did was cut a circle out of the sheer curtain I bought and started sewing it to the wire basket at the bottom. 

Step 4:  (optional)  Cover handle with ribbon!

Step 5:  Attach handle to food cover!  (also sewed this) other options would be to use hot glue.

A Classy, yet affordable Food Cover! 

I would LOVE to see what you have created!  Leave a comment or send me an email!
