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.
–tinsel pipe cleaners
See? Already so simple.
First, 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.
That’s all there is to it. I swear. Makes me way too happy how such a simple craft can be so fun and festive. You too?!
I 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!

Amy, such a simple and pretty holiday diy. Perfect for any event. I always love your projects and your photos.
SO cute! Great job as always!
LOVE! These are so fun! They would be great for New Years, too. Or….for everything….every day. :)

I can feel the festive feel from the stirrers! So fun! This would do for any celebration! Great job!
Love these! What a fun idea.
Love these, Amy!! So festive!
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!
Love em, and I was going to say what someone else said above. ^ These would be perfect for New Year’s too!
Love these – such a cute idea! Glad to be part of this tour with you :)
