If easy Christmas crafts are your jam, then welcome to your jam! Since festive drinks aren’t really traditional in my area (no eggnog here!), I’ve been thinking of ways to make regular drinks more festive. That’s how I came up with these drink stirrers, super easy to put together with just some small branches that you can probably find close to where you live, and very basic crafting supplies. You can even go a little crazy and spray paint the branches gold (with matching baker’s twine), but I preferred to keep a natural, more traditional look. Here we go:
What you need:
Start by cutting the skewers to size. This can depend on the glasses you use most often, as well as your personal preference. Then cut the branches into smaller pieces.
Insert the branch into the opening you just cut.
Cover the entire area with baker’s twine (or whatever yarn/thread you have on hand) and knot the ends together. Cut off excess thread and you have a drink stirrer.
Repeat the steps to get as many drink stirrers as you like! You can also use these as cake or cupcake toppers and even to decorate gifts.
