These easy DIY Valentine’s Day stir sticks are the simple, yet statement making project you’ve been looking for. Read on to see how to make them…
Hello friends! Can you believe we’re closing in on the end of January already? I simply cannot believe we are talking about Valentine’s Day…and actually have been for a few weeks now! 2020 is certainly going fast. Of course, I always look forward to the next holiday after one ends, so I was ready to talk about Valentine’s Day on January 2nd. Haha! Whether you’re a grown-up or a kid, I think we all love to love heart day right?
On that note, let’s talk about today’s super cute and easy Valentine’s Day DIY project. If you’re celebrating soon with a party, brunch or just a romantic dinner for two, these DIY stir sticks or cocktail stirrers will add a pop of creativity to your February 14th! They’re Pinterest worthy while being easy enough for anyone to master. Score!
* A little tip before we get started…I like to make my DIY cocktail stirrers out of bamboo sticks that you can find at the grocery store. If you want them shorter than they come, just cut them to your preferred length using sharp scissors.
Chocolate Stir Sticks
A Valentine’s Day without chocolate is simply not a Valentines Day I’d like to be a part of! Let’s be real. So, these chocolate stir sticks just might be my favorite. You use heart shaped chocolates (like heart shaped Peppermint Patties) to add a little sweetness to your drink.
Simply stick the pointy end of the bamboo stick into the bottom of the chocolate and voila – a perfect drink stirrer. Other candies like red and pink gum drops can be substituted for chocolate. The opportunities are endless!
Sticker Stir Sticks
Now it really doesn’t get much easier than these sticker stir sticks! Heart stickers are aplenty at any craft store this time of year. Affix a heart sticker to the front and back of the pointy end of a bamboo stick for a fabulously festive decoration. If you’re having a party, these also serve as drink markers. Put out markers for guests so they can right their names on their stickers!
Ribbon Stir Sticks
And finally, we have ribbon stir sticks, another simple option. Cut small pieces of red and pink ribbon with sharp scissors and tie to the ends of the bamboo sticks. You obviously don’t have to stick to red or pink. There are SO many different colors and prints that would work for Valentine’s Day in ribbon aisle. Craft stores will definitely be bursting with fun ribbon choices!
- 36 bamboo stir sticks
- 12 chocolate hearts
- 2 spools of narrow ribbon
- 24 heart stickers
