Oh Happy Day turned 10 years old so we held a big party. We spent a lot of time planning lots of pretty details. And this week we are going to share all of them. I wanted the party to feel super festive so we made lots of drink stirrers and swizzle sticks. My favorite were these tiny balloons! We also made some ribbon flags and fringey sticks. They are really simple but it was such a festive party details to have all these fun drink toppers decorating the bar.
We’re going to be sharing more details of our party all week! Check back for more! Meanwhile you can find the three DIY projects below.
MINI BALLOON SWIZZLE STICK
Step 1: Inflate mini balloon with a balloon hand pump to about 2”-3”.
Step 2: Knot the balloon.
Step 3: Tie the balloon around the skewer. Then, push the knot as close to the end of the skewer as possible.
MINI FRINGE SWIZZLE STICK
Step 1: Cut fringe from crepe paper with a good pair of scissors. Our fringe was roughly 1″ tall and 3mm wide.
Step 2: Cut fringe into 2” long pieces.
Step 3: Wrap two pieces of fringe around the flat end of the skewer. The fringe should extend past the end of the skewer so the end is hidden from view. Add a dab of Aleene’s to secure the fringe.
Step 4: Use your fingers to separate and fluff the fringe.
MINI RIBBON FLAG SWIZZLE STICK
Step 1: Cut ribbon into 3” pieces.
Step 2: Fold ribbon in half. Loop the ends of the ribbon around a skewer, and through the eye using a cow hitch knot.
Step 3: Add a dot of hot glue to the ribbon loop opening before pulling the ribbon tight.
Step 4: Trim ends to desired length.
