Our sequined swizzle sticks were such a hit with you guys! Thanks for the love; we also think they’re pretty fantastic. And now you can buy them in our etsy shop, which we’re really excited about. While those beauties make great swizzle sticks or cupcake/cake toppers for the holidays, we wanted to share a few more ideas for easy holiday swizzle sticks. You probably have most of the necessary components on hand, especially if you’ve been wrapping presents or decorating a tree!
We bought some mini ornaments from the dollar store to embellish our Christmas presents. Why not turn them into cute and festive cupcake toppers as well?
These ribbon swizzle sticks are embarrassingly easy. All you need is a little curling ribbon, some tape and a wooden skewer. They’re so quick, easy and cheap that you almost don’t have an excuse NOT to make them.
This wire star garland was meant for a Christmas tree, but we think it’s just as cute as a springy topper. These would be great for New Year’s Eve or the Fourth of July as well!
- miniature ornaments
- 5 inches of curling ribbon
- glue gun and hot glue
- wooden skewers
- Thread the ornament onto the curling ribbon.
- Tie a bow at the top of the ornaments. Keep the connection between the bow and the ornament loose, so the ornament will hang at an angle on the swizzle stick while the bow is straight.
- Squeeze a dab of hot glue on the inside of the bow's knot. Stick the end of the skewer into the glue, straighten so you like the way the bow sits, and hold for a few seconds while the glue cools.
- Curling ribbon
- Glitter tape
- Wooden skewers
- Cut 12 inches of curling ribbon.
- Use the blade of a pair of scissors to curl the ribbon.
- Tape the ribbon to the end of the skewer with the glitter tape.
- Wire garland
- Glitter tape
- Wooden Skewer
- pen or pencil
- Cut 10 inches of wire garland.
- Starting at one end of the garland, wrap the wire around a pen or pencil 5-6 times to form a loose coil. Leave about 1.5 inches at the end of the wire. Pull off the pencil.
- Wrap the straight end of the wire tightly around the skewer.
- Pull the coil and bend the wire to make the topper look fun and springy.
