I found this wonderful little DIY Doily Drink Parasol project from Papermash the other day. These adorable parasols would be just perfect for a bridal shower or casual outdoor wedding! … And since you would need quite a few of them for such occasions, this presents a great opportunity to get together with your bridesmaids for a girls night (or afternoon) in to work on the project!
Mini doilies ( available at papermash)
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
Accents for tops (optional)
Step 1: Cut out a small circle template and trace onto the card stock paper (you’ll need one for each parasol). Cut out each and mark the center.
Step 2: Use glue stick to glue one circle onto the center of each doily and let dry. This will help to reinforce the paper doily and make the parasols sturdier.
Step 3: Cut from the edge of the doily to its center and bend into a cone shape. Secure with glue.
Step 4: Glue button, bead or accessory to the top of the parasol and let dry. (Optional)
Step 5: Use the hot glue gun to attach wooden skewer to the parasol.
Voilà! You have a super cute parasol for your drink! For the tutorial and template visit papermash. While you’re there, poke around a bit. They have lots of fun paper products!
