So today I am sharing how to make these adorable drink umbrellas for your 4th of July party this year! The beauty of them is they take very little supplies (very inexpensive supplies too) and they are quick and easy to make. I made 30 of them in about 30 minutes. So fun!
If you’d like to make some for your celebrations this year (or any party, really!) here is what you’ll need:
- 4″ doilies
- scrapbook paper
- wood skewers
- 3″ circle punch or circle cutter
- hot glue gun
- clue stick/adhesive
STEP ONE: Punch out 3″ circles in the scrapbook paper of your choice and glue on top of your doilies. Allow to dry.
STEP TWO: Cut a line from the edge of your doily/scrapbook paper to the center.
STEP THREE: Using your glue stick, glue along the edge of the cut and form your circle into a slight cone and adhere. Hold in place until it stays put. Allow to dry.
STEP FOUR: Add a small dob of hot glue in underside tip of umbrella and then place your wood skewer in glue. Hold until it dries/cools. Snip wood skewer to desired length.
STEP FIVE: Pop them in your favorite party drink and wow your guests! 🙂
So fun, right? And the best part about them is you simply make them in different scrapbook papers to make them fit any occassion!
