Planning a party soon? Make these easy DIY drink stirrers for your cocktails and mocktails. All it takes is wood sucker sticks, striped washi tape, cardstock paper, a 1″ round craft punch. You can personalize them with any image you like, and it’s quick to make a ton of drink stirrers in just one evening. These drink stirrers are wooden, so guests can reuse their drink stirrers for another cocktail …but maybe not three ????

This easy DIY drink stirrers project is sponsored by Paper Mart (and Few Spirits for the booze). All opinions are mine. Cheers!

My friend Heather from YumUniverse and I co-hosted a Cookbook Tasting Party at Same Day Cafe for her latest cookbook, Pantry to Plate. Party guests tasted plant-based recipes from Heather’s cookbook, made their own DIY grocery bags using fruit and veggie stamping onto natural cotton reusable totes, and drank cocktails featuring Few Spirits whiskey and gin and DIY drink stirrers using Paper Mart 6″ wooden lollipop sticks, washi tape, and Heather’s fruit illustrations from Pantry to Plate.

These drinks stirrers went perfectly with the three cocktails that we served sponsored by Few Spirits in Evanston which not only tasted fantastic but also have the most beautiful labels.

How to make easy DIY drink stirrers (using any image you wish):

1. First, prep your image. I used Heather’s illustrations of lemons, apples and limes but you can really use anything you like. Space out the images about 1.25″ from each other; I recommend using Microsoft PowerPoint if you don’t have a graphics program like Adobe Illustrator. Then print onto white card stock paper.

Now let’s start cranking them out!

2. Punch out your images using a 1″ craft punch.

3. Wrap the washi tape around the top of the wooden sucker stick to full cover it.

4. Cut the washi tape, leaving about 1/4″ hanging.

5. Stick a punched circle onto the washi tape.
