Festive DIY Cocktail Stirrers

5 Materials
These fun and easy DIY cocktail stirrers are perfect for New Years Eve celebrations!
These cocktail stirrers are made out of chopsticks and small bulb ornaments. They couldn't be easier to make!
Cut the chopsticks to desired size with wire cutters.
Remove the tops from the ornaments and snip off the ornament hook with wire cutters.
Spray paint the ornament tops and the chopsticks with 2 coats of gold metallic paint. Once dry, coat with food-safe sealer.
Slide the ornament top onto the chop stick and then push the ornament ornament onto the chopstick.
Use them as cocktail stirrers, appetizer picks or to adorn your New Year's bubbly!
