The weekend is here and so it's Summer Time, so how about adding a splash of color to your summertime drinks with these cute drink umbrellas?
Even if you don't live in the tropics or close to the beach, drink umbrellas is a fabulous way to accessorize pretty much any drink; chilling in your back yard with some lemonade, by the pool with a margarita or perhaps just your OJ at breakfast time.
Here's a fast and easy way to create your very own and bring in that summer feeling to your daily drink, plus they also work as a stir stick.
Here's what you'll need:
A can of soup to use as a template to make the round umbrella tops.
Origami or Scrap book paper.
Paper Scissors or Scallop Edge Scissors for decorative edges.
Wood Skewers (for grilling)
Step 1.From each circle, make a 1/2 diameter cut or cut a slice shape measuring about 1/8 of the circumference.
Step 2. Fashion into a cone, slightly overlapping straight ends; use a glue stick or double-sided tape to secure.
Step 3. Dab white craft glue inside nose of cone, and pierce tip with a wooden skewer (snip skewer for a custom fit); allow to dry.
Piece of cake, uh? I think so... And I will try it myself this weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend, cheers!
