I love the sense of occasion a fun, colourful stirrer can add to a drink . As halloween is coming up I thought I’d come up with a few simple ideas that would be quick and easy to make especially for the celebration. I created three (reasonably spooky) designs here that all take pretty much less than a few minutes to make. All the craft supplies used are also things you’ll probably already have laying about the house too!
Making the Feather Stirrer:
Glue the feathers together on top on one another with the glue gun, then glue onto the top of the kebab stick (about 5cm / 2 inches down). Finish by wrapping the black cotton around the base so it completely covers the bottom inch of the feathers and secure with a final dab of glue.
Making the Spider Stirrer:
Tie the black cotton around the plastic spider or attach with a glue gun. Cut the thread back to about 15cm (6inches). Cut a small piece of black electrical tape and wrap it around the end of the kebab stick, using it to stick the end of the cotton thread to the stick. Finish by blackening the end of the stick with the felt marker.
Making the Monster Stirrer:
Cut a small 5cm x 5cm (2in x 2in) square of the fabric. Apply glue to the top 4cm (1 1/2 inches) of the stick and then glue to the inside of the fabric, about 2/3 across or so. Fold the fabric over the stick and then glue bits together. Glue googly eyes on top.
