How to pretty up your drinks by NellieBellie...

Hello!! Janel from NellieBellie and I'm so pleased to be here! This month's theme is all about favorite things and this was an easy one! Summer is almost here and with summer comes time in the sun barbecuing, swimming, and drinking fun drinks. All of those are some of my favorite things. But, the one thing I look forward to the most is pretty drinks in pretty cups on pretty days. So, today's project is... diy-drink-umbrella   Don't little drink umbrella's make you happy? They make me smile! And I swear my drinks taste that much better! To make these cute little umbrella's all you need are some of the fabulous paper from Zeus and Zoe...I'm not kidding, that paper is sooo cute! You will also need some wooden skewers and a hot glue gun. That's it! I also added a bit of garland to the very tops (a great way to use up those leftover Christmas decorations!) for added fun. diy-drink-umbrella-collage
 To make these cute little umbrellas cut circles out of the fabulous paper, cut a slit into the circle so that you can shape the umbrella, and attach your umbrella to a wooden skewer (I cut mine in half) with hot glue. Ta-da!! Now your drinks will look as fabulous as they taste! For a more complete tutorial pop over to NellieBellie and visit me!
