DIY Swizzle Sticks

30 April 2009

I’ve loved this photo {above} since I saw it in the fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings a few years ago. Serving lemonade or iced tea before the ceremony is such a sweet touch, and these little fabric flags are an easy DIY extra.

Instructions from Martha: With gardening shears, trim a wooden skewer so it’s a few inches taller than the glass you’ll put it in. Cut a 9-inch length of 15-millimeter grosgrain ribbon. Fold in half and make a loose knot. Slip knot over skewer and tighten. Notch ribbon ends.

I always love seeing projects from editorials in real weddings {especially from Martha, as she can be quite intimidating…}. These colorful swizzle sticks are pretty spot-on, aren’t they?
