We did this cute little DIY project for our Boho Summer Party shoot – yummy feather drink stirrers! Such a fun addition to any girly, festive occasion. Bridal showers, baby parties, dinner parties, and obviously weddings! Click ahead to read how.
Firstly – assemble your supplies. If you purchased a DIY kit, you’re all set! All you need is scissors and a glue gun. If you’re purchasing your own supplies, gather a bunch of feathers (in different colors and sizes), a handful of bamboo skewers, and whatever trim you’d like to use to finish them off. We used gold, because we love gold. But you could totally use anything you like.
You can make a bunch of the exact same stirrer, or you can make all sorts of different ones that go together, like we did. If you purchased the kit, you’ll see that feather sizes and shapes vary, so you’ll have to figure out which go together best.
Start with your biggest feather first and position it in the direction you like. Add a spot of hot glue, and then affix the feather to the top of the stirrer.
Repeat with the second biggest…
… on down the line until you have them all arranged as you like them. To add the trim, squeeze out a spot of glue at the lower part of the feather tips.
Attach the trim and wind it up the stirrer until it covers the messy part of the feathers. You might want to add another spot of glue midway, if you think it’s necessary. Then one more spot of glue at the top to attach the end of the trim.
Snip the remaining trim away from the stick, and voila! You can cut the stirrers down to size if you’d like them to match the height of your glasses. Or if you want to use these little beauties on a cake or cupcakes, leave the pointy end intact.
Easy breezy! Here's a little peek of the combinations we came up with.
