Separate the potato chips into three batches. From the first batch, dip the end of each chip into the melted candy, place onto the parchment-lined baking sheet (making sure the chips do not touch), and repeat. After 5 or 6 chips are dipped, decorate those with patriotic sprinkles while the candy coating is still wet. Repeat with remaining potato chips for that color. Clean the pan and start over with the second and third colors of candy melts until all potato chips are dipped and decorated.
