diy doily cocktail stirrer | 100 Layer Cake

Earlier today we shared this super romantic Hispanic wedding inspiration shoot, complete with a papel picado chandelier, piñata, and these sweet doily cocktail stirrers. Heather Hele of Sweet Revelry Event Design was kind enough to share a DIY tutorial so we can easily make these cuties ourselves. Any Cinco de Mayo weddings being planned out there? How perfect would these look in your cocktails?

Step one: Set your doily in a bowl or tupperware and cover in fabric stiffner. Once it’s entirely covered, place on parchment paper to dry.

Step two: When dry, grab scissors and begin shaping the doily to the shape that you’d like. Then cut a slit through to make it easier to shape into an umbrella.

Step three: Glue the slit together, shape in your palm, and glue in your stirring stick to the center.

Step four: Turn it over and glue your embellishment to the top center and add t0 any cocktail!

I love this idea!!! It looks a little time consuming to make but no doubt it would be a perfect detail to a doily themed party. I hosted a doily themed party a few weeks ago for my koumbara (my best friend who is soon to be married). I wish I saw this earlier.
