DIY Drink Stirrers

Just in time for July 4th, I did a fun DIY project ... Drink Stirrers! Inspired by the hushedCOMMOTION flowers! 

You will need:

- Three colors of silk organza (one should be printed). 1/2yrd each. 

- Wooden skewer sticks (like for kebabs) 

- Twine

- Glue gun

- Scissors

You can create your own stencils for the circles by using a thick card stock paper and using circular items from around your house to trace with. Cups, bowls, rolls of tape...  

The diameters I used were: 3 3/4", 3", 2 1/2".

To create the ruffles, use the two step folding process pictured above, then hot glue the end so that they don't unfold.

Fill a glass, and enjoy! 

You can also use your festive stirrers as a skewer for lemon and lime slices!
