MAKE IT / 4
nothing quenches your thirst quite like a festive drink named after a mythical creature. unless that drink is also adorned with a bright, fun, sparkly stir stick. let’s get started!
what you’ll need:
• glue (i used a hot glue gun)
• large hole punch (i used a 2 1/8″ but they make them up to 3″ that i’ve seen, and i like the 2.75 inch from this brand)
• colored tissue paper
• patterned paper straws and/or wooden or plastic stir sticks (i used my favorite bamboo skewers)
• something fun for the top, like these little iridescent pom poms that are sold at most craft stores.
for the simpler stir sticks, cut the paper straw down to size and glue a pom on top! you’re done!
if you want to get a little crazier, you can punch tissue circles and pierce them onto the stick one by one, using the glue gun to create small blobs of glue that will keep them properly spaced and secure on the stick. finish with a fancy top. make as many as you want in different colors, patterns, shapes and sizes.
