Of all the DIYs we’ve shared on this pretty little blog, I dare say this one from the lovely Lauren Wells might just be my all-time favorite. If I could, I’d put fresh flowers on just about anything, so why not in a cocktail too? With a sweet set of vintage glasses from Pollen Floral Design and always gorgeous photos from Cambria Grace, these fresh flower drink stirrers have me ready to sip and smell!
From Lauren Wells Events… I absolutely adore fresh flowers and botanical vibes, and I try to incorporate simple and organic elements into every wedding and event I design. These floral drink stirrers are probably my favorite things I have ever dreamt up, and they are incredibly simple to create. It’s like a garden for your glass!
Gold Embroidery Thread
Hot Glue Gun
For larger flowers, such as a ranunculus or a poppy, snip off most of the stem, leaving a bit right under the flower head. For smaller and more wild flowers, such as chamomile or aster, snip off one stem with a small bunch.
For the larger flowers, all you need to do is simply skewer the stem. Piece of cake! For the smaller flowers, use the gold embroidery thread to wrap around the base until tightly wound. (As you will see, I used some gold thread to embellish some of the larger flowers as well)!
Place a dot of hot glue on the back of the embroidery thread, and use the glue to seal the thread.
Pour yourself a cocktail, and enjoy! The floral scent while you sip is just an added bonus.
