Turn an Old Necklace into DIY Drink Stirrers

Do This :: Turn an old necklace into DIY Drink Stirrers!

Today I have a little DIY that is as cute as it is easy! My sister-in-law graciously gifted me with the beads from her broken necklace when she was staying with us a few months ago. She handed them to me and said, “You’re crafty, I know you can make something out of these.”

Challenge accepted.

I turned that busted necklace into DIY drink stirrers to use at my recent birthday party. They were pretty, shiny and were literally accomplished in two steps. The DIY is below. Obviously, if you don’t have a necklace this DIY can also be done with beads purchased a la carte.

Turn an Old Necklace into DIY Drink Stirrers

Materials

Beads
Sushi Mat or Wooden Kabob Skewers
Kitchen shears or wire cutter
Super Glue
Optional: Drill & Vice

Instructions

1. If using a sushi mat, cut off the strings to free the wooden skewers. Trim the wooden skewers to be the right size for your drinks.

2. Insert the skewer into the bead and secure with a dab of super glue. Let dry.

If your bead hole is too small, you may need to widen it using a drill and a vice.

    Super pretty! Love this idea. I might do this with my broken necklace I’ve been hanging onto in hopes that I’ll one day fix it.

      Haha, I picked up the glasses at the Alemany flea market – where I get many of my props!
