DIY Fireworks Drink Stirrers- Patriotic Summer Blog Hop

DIY Fireworks Drink Stirrers

I have joined up with more than 30 AMAZING bloggers to tackle the challenge of creating a patriotic project or recipe without using the traditional red, white and blue color scheme! How fun is that?! Starting last week and running through July 4th, more than 30 projects will be shared on some of the most awesome blogs around. I can’t wait to see all of the inspirational projects and hope YOU will find some inspiration as well.

These drink stirrers, which mimic fireworks, would make fun little additions to any 4th of July celebration.  Plus, they fulfill two crucial requirements I have for DIY stirrers- they’re 1) easy and 2) quick to make, which is especially ideal if a lot of them are needed.

Materials:
-tinsel pipe cleaners
-paper straws
-wire cutters

See?  Already so simple.

Pipe Cleaner PiecesFirst, use wire cutters to cut each pipe cleaner into four, roughly even pieces.  Shake off any excess tinsel that was cut.

Shove as many of these pipe cleaner pieces as you can into a straw (I was able to shove 9) and then bend each one into a downward curve.

4th of July Fireworks Drink StirrersI like how my first ever 4th of July project isn’t red, white and blue, which for me was an easy challenge since gold remains a viable option <3.  I also LOVE the glint and gleam of the tinsel on the pipe cleaners.  Really helps the imagination see them as fireworks ;)

Now, before you head out, be sure to check out the AMAZING projects that were shared last week!

    That’s such an interesting project. Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays and I love this! It actually looks like it would be really cute for a NYE party

    Yay, these are so cute! I can’t believe how easy they are, what a brilliant idea. :) Also it’s so great to get out of the red-white-blue color scheme, I find it very limiting because, well, it’s not very stylish. This is a super alternative!
