I love a cute drink stirrer and that’s why I made these Tiny Umbrella Drink Stirrers! They are perfect for your upcoming summer barbecues, or for any celebration. They could also be lovely for a bridal or baby shower. If you don’t want to make them into drink stirrers, the umbrellas would make cute cupcake toppers (just make the bamboo skewers shorter).

Step 1:

Print out the Umbrella Drink Stirrer onto your white cardstock paper.

Step 2:

Use the scissors to cut out the umbrella shape outline.

Note: make sure you don’t cut off the glue tab, you need it.

Step 3:

Use a small hole punch to cut a hole in the center of each umbrella.

Step 4:

This next step could be optional: fold the umbrella on the dark lines (see image above). The umbrella is still super cute if you skip this, but I love how it looks when they’re folded.

Step 5:

Put a little dot of hot glue on the “glue tabs” and attach the glue tab to the bottom side of the umbrellas.

Step 6:

Push the flat side of the bamboo skewer through the hole-punched hole (make it stick out the top of the umbrella about a 1/4 of an inch). Flip the umbrella over so you can see the underside of the umbrella (the white side). Put a bit of hot glue on the skewer and the underside of the umbrella. Let the glue cool and pick away any hot glue strings.

Step 7:

Use the wire cutters to trim the umbrella drink stirrers to your desired length. Decorate your favorite drinks with this cute little umbrella! I just poured a Starbucks® Discoveries Iced Café Favorites™ – Caramel Macchiato over some ice for my cool drink. Yum.

I think it would be cool to use a regular hole punch and put them on a straw instead of a skewer too :)

I would love a printable that doesn't have the colours on it (ie just black & white) because a) I don't have a colour printer and b) it would be a nice craft idea to get the kids to colour in the panels and then we could finish the tutorial as above but with hand coloured umbrellas.
