What cocktail, or festive drink for that matter is complete without a little garnish? Are you ready for what is quite possibly the easiest and most rewarding DIY project, ever? Let me introduce you to Sequined Swizzle Sticks. Whether its stirring a cocktail, adorning a lemonade, or simply holding court on your bar cart; be assured that this fancy stick will make any drink look like a million bucks. No occasion required!
Let's get started!
3 yards - ¼" Flat single strand sequins
1 - 3/16x36" Wooden Dowel cut into 6" pieces
6 - 20mm Wooden Round Beads
Hot glue gun
Slide one wooden bead onto the end of each 6" cut wooden stick.
Holding swizzle stick by the base, apply a small round of hot glue to the top of the wooden bead and attach a strand of sequins. Working in a clockwise-spiral direction, apply hot glue in a tight circle around the top of the bead and follow with sequins strand. Press lightly to adhere.
Continue to work your way down the bead applying hot glue in a spiral followed by sequins.
Step 4: When you've come to the bottom of the bead, cut sequin strand.
Step 5: Allow glue to dry completely and stir away!

Thank you Kelsey! Simple is best.
OMG so much fun! I want a cocktail right now just so I can stir (or swizzle?! is that the proper terminology) something.

Haha! I think the term would still be "stir" but the stick itself is called a swizzle stick. No idea why!
