Inkling: drink umbrellas

There’s something about a beverage that comes with a little umbrella that makes the drink taste even better and more refreshing.

I saw this diy craft on Martha Stewart’s craft of the day. She used origami paper but I wanted to use tissue paper like the original tiki drink umbrellas.

Here’s how I made my drink umbrellas:

I knew that tissue paper would be too flimsy, so I glued tissue paper onto plain printer paper with a glue stick.

Cut out a 2-1/2 inch circle and then cut a 1/8 pie wedge in the circle. Glue or tape the sides together forming a cone. Put a dab of craft glue inside the point of the cone and insert a wooden skewer.

Place the umbrellas into a block of styrofoam to dry. I didn’t have styrofoam so I used plastic containers filled with leftover beans.

Fill with your favorite beverage and enjoy. Cheers!
