Making your own cocktail stir sticks is a great way to add a personalized touch to a summer gathering. Although the name suggests they be used for cocktail, they could of course be used in lemonade, tea, and other drinks that require mixing. And when you’re done with them, they make great plant decorations! Just stick them into the soil of a potted plant and you have yourself a darling garden stake.
What you will need:
Decorative pearls (optional)
Pliers or scissors
1. Cut skewers in half using pliers or sharp scissors. I've found pliers give a cleaner cut.
2. Fold fabric in half and cut out a triangle shape, so that when you open it you have an elongated diamond.
3. Place the skewer in the crease of the diamond, apply a small amount of glue, and fold it so the ends meet each other.
4. Embellish as you wish!
