DIY Gumball Drink Stirrers

I have a prop closet and a prop bin just chock full of stuff, and when I was going through it one day, I found a whole bunch of gumballs hiding out in there. And, since apparently I’m on a drink stirrer kick lately, I thought “Holy moly, modern drink stirrers!” Within an hour I had popped them onto some skewers and crafted up a modern little cocktail fiesta. Aren’t they fun!? I actually love how those colors pop with black and white stripes. Thinking this may need to be a major part of my Christmas theme this year, what do you think? In the meantime, let’s jazz up some drinks.

Gumballs
Skewers
Awl (A large needle would probably work as well!)

This is the easiest DIY ever. Are you ready? Use your (clean) awl to poke a hole through one side of the gumball. Pop it on a skewer. DONE!

To add two gumballs to a skewer, poke a hole all the way through the gumball (it may be easiest to poke a hole on each side, meeting in the middle, for this), slide it on the skewer and then add another one on top. The only thing you need to remember is don’t make the holes to large! The skewers should fit inside snugly.
