I love discovering stores in NYC – there are some places that haven’t changed for decades and are so specific with what they sell it’s amazing they still exist. The other day I went on a hunt to find tiny winter sport figures and ended up at an awesome model train store. If you live near a model train store definitely go check it out! You can also find them online – there’s a set for every activity or theme you can think of. I used tiny skiers and ice skaters to make Winter Olympics drink stirrers – perfect to have in your drink while watching the games in Sochi!
Materials needed: paint in Olympic colors (blue, yellow, black, green, red, and I added white for winter), wooden skewers, half inch wooden beads, paint brushes, hobby glue, and HO scale model train figures.
Step 1: Glue beads to the end of the skewers and let dry.
Step 2: Paint each bead a different color.
Step 3: Let painted skewers dry.
Step 4: Glue figures to the tops of the skewers. Put a tiny dab of glue on the top of the bead and hold the figure in place until dry.
Step 5: Ready to swizzle!
