Martha Monday project and I was a bit tired of cooking. I wanted to try my hand at something crafty so I chose these cute drink umbrellas from Martha Stewart's website.
This craft was so easy to do. Cut a circle out of pretty paper. Use a soup can for a guide. Or a tuna can. Or a small jar. I did a few different sizes to match my different sized glasses. Cut out a wedge from the circle, about 1/8 or 1/6 depending on how you like your umbrellas to look. Tape the edges together so a kind of a cone is formed. Pierce the center with a skewer or long toothpick. Use glue to secure the skewer. (I used hot glue so that if it got wet it wouldn't end up in my drink.) And that's it!
I used a thicker paper than I probably should have so you can see where my edges join on my umbrellas. That was my only complaint. These were super cute. My boys both loved having them in their lemonade.
