Handmade Cocktail Umbrella Tutorial

Picture this: You order a vodka tonic, not much of a fru fru drink lover, and when it arrives you have a stunning cocktail umbrella casually placed in your drink.  You have one thought : WOO HOO!  Everyone loves cocktail umbrellas.  The best part about these cocktail umbrellas is that they are handmade and can be completely personalized.  Put them in your summer tea or weekly root beer float, celebrate with it in your champagne or in your protein shake.  These babies just scream FUN!


Tutorial:

Supplies Needed:
Scrapbook Paper
A circle cutter or pattern for a 1.5inch or 2 inch circle
Glue Gun/Glue
Bamboo skewer sticks
Work space lined with newspaper
Cups to hold glued umbrellas while they dry


1. CUT YOUR CIRCLES OUT


2. CUT HALFWAY THRU EACH CIRCLE


3. POKE THE SKEWER INTO THE CENTER OF THE CIRCLE AND MAKE A SMALL HOLE


4. GLUE THE CIRCLE INTO THE SHAPE OF AN UMBRELLA AND THEN PLACE A SMALL DOT OF GLUE WHERE THE SKEWER WILL POKE THROUGH.  BEFORE THE GLUE DRIES, SLIDE THE SKEWER INTO THE HOLE.


VOILA! Super easy and fun.  These would be great for a baby shower, bridal shower, bachelorette party, everyday use, or wedding!
