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).
Want to make some for yourself? Well, below you’ll find my free printable and directions.
- Umbrella Drink Stirrer printable
- white card stock paper
- bamboo skewers
- hot glue
- wire cutters
- small hole punch
- a yummy cool drink (like an iced Starbucks® Discoveries Iced Café Favorites™)
Print out the Umbrella Drink Stirrer onto your white cardstock paper.
Use the scissors to cut out the umbrella shape outline.
Note: make sure you don’t cut off the glue tab, you need it.
Use a small hole punch to cut a hole in the center of each umbrella.
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.
Put a little dot of hot glue on the “glue tabs” and attach the glue tab to the bottom side of the umbrellas.
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.
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.
Come back in a few days and I will have a yummy Starbucks Discoveries Milkshake Recipe for you. Something yummy for the warm weather and your little umbrellas.

I think it would be cool to use a regular hole punch and put them on a straw instead of a skewer too 🙂
Love that idea.

These are too cute. I featured the in my june moodboard <3 http://skyforged.fr/moodboard-juin/
Thank you. 🙂
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.
Thanks for sharing! ^^
It's so cute~ I'll make it right now~
