Marshmallow Flags! / #15 Minute Friday

I am always excited for the 4th of July! It's one of my favorite holidays! I love what it stands for, and I love celebrating it with family and friends! 
Today's 15 Minute Friday is a quick and simple Marshmallow flag that would be fun to create with little ones. They also make cute decor for your festivities, and the perfect thank you gift for your guests!
Marshmallow Flags 
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 bag Bright White Candy Melts
Square Marshmallows
Red, White and Blue Straws
Assortment of red, white and blue sprinkles, jimmies, and shapes


Melt candy melts according to package directions. They melt great in the microwave, and are perfect every time.
Insert a straw into a marshmallow so it resembles a flag. Using a paintbrush that you only use for candy and cookie decorating, paint a small square in the corner, and attach the stars. Paint two stripes across the flag.
Sprinkle the holiday sprinkles across the flag. Let dry. Then turn over to remove the excess sprinkles.
Do the same thing for this flag, using one star and the hearts. Just go crazy with your imagination! There are so many ideas that are simple and quick!
Here are some different stripe ideas.
