As a child, I used to love those little drink umbrellas! They were always so much fun to play with – until they ripped. See, the thing is, they were cheap and destructible. As much as I tried, I was just not careful enough. They needed to be sturdier. So, I have created a way to make your own DIY Drink Umbrellas and all you need is some cute cardstock and lollipop sticks!

Here is what you need to make your own Drink Umbrellas!

Cardstock

Octagon stencil

Pencil

Scissors

Glue stick

Hot glue gun

Lollipop sticks

I created my own octagon stencil from the back of the cereal box. You will need to cut out a small section to create the cone. Trace the octagon onto your card stock.

Cut out your octagon. {Don’t they look like some sort of octagonal Pac-Man?}

Using your glue stick, glue in place. It will overlap and become a 3D hexagon.

Flip over and place a dollop of hot glue in the middle. Add the lollipop stick. Hold in place as the hot glue solidifies.

    What a cute summer drink accessory. These stuff really adds a retro vibe to any party. And imagine yourself in one of those vintage polka dot skirts.
