10 Simple Ideas for Casual Crafters

Doily Drink Umbrellas

If you're hosting a cocktail party, start with a little crafty fun by making some homemade doily drink umbrellas. For this project, you just need some card stock, small paper doilies, hot glue and wooden skewers. First, hot glue a cut circle of card stock to the center of the doily. Once that dries, make a straight cut from the outside of the doily to the center, through the card stock, and then bend the doily into an umbrellalike cone shape, overlapping and securing with hot glue. Once this dries, simply hot glue a skewer to the center of the underside of the cone, and you have some fun, handmade cocktail umbrellas.
