how to make your own drink umbrellas

By  | 

I have a dream. A dream of warmth, pretty drinks, cabana boys, and lying about. In my dream all of my beverages every single one come with a drink umbrella. Probably a pink one. And delivered by a cabana boy. Whilst I lay in the warmth and chat with Nate. I don’t hear children in this dream. I don’t see dirty dishes or bills (nope, this dream is paid for) or grass that needs mowing.

Well, at least I have an itty bitty part of my dream fulfilled today!

Make your own drink umbrella's: so easy and fun to personalize!

I used gorgeous paper from Zeus and Zoe to make myself dream worthy drink umbrellas. It’s the little things in life that make me smile!





Supplies for drink umbrella:

  • paper
  • scissors
  • wooden skewers
  • hot glue
  • tinsel garland (optional)

To Do:

  1. Cut paper into circles about 3 inches in diameter (I used a mason jar as a guide)
  2. Cut a slit into the circle up to the center of the circle.
  3. Form the umbrella from the circle. Hot glue into place.
  4. (I cut my skewers in half but use the size you prefer!) Hot glue the umbrellas on to the skewers.
  5. For extra fun…cut up a bit of tinsel garland. Put a dab of hot glue on the top of your umbrella and dip it into the tinsel.

Now you too can have a dream worthy drink!! Cheers!
