how to make your own cocktail umbrellas

I have a dream. A dream of warmth, pretty cocktails, cabana boys, and lying about. In my dream, all of my cocktails -every single one- come with a cocktail 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.

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 cocktail 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 onto 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 cocktail umbrella for your cocktail! Cheers!
