{diy} confetti swizzle sticks.

add a little sparkle to your holiday drinks this year with this so easy and fast confetti swizzle sticks diy:

drugstore garland (in whatever color - gold, silver, red, anything! - you wish)
bamboo stick skewers
hot glue gun

cut the garland into approximately 1-inch pieces.
no need to be exact, just eyeball it; they'll come out looking close enough!

cut or break the bamboo sticks to desired length.
i just snap a couple of inches off the pointy-end.  this assures that whether the swizzle 
sticks end up in champagne flutes or highball glasses, they'll stand up well.

coat the broken tip of the skewer with hot glue, grab a garland piece, 
and pinch the mid-section into the glue.
careful not to burn your fingers while also trying to glue just enough of the garland to get it 
to stay - you want to keep as much of the confetti "fluff" glue-free so it stays full and circular.

hold in place for a few seconds before laying aside to completely dry.  


20 minutes start to finish and I have 30 confetti swizzle sticks for the cocktail my sis and I volunteered to bring to a big family friend get-together on december 22 :)

i also made these last year for new year's eve and keep them on my bar year-round for special occasions like... the oscars (see last pic)!
