diy drink flags


You Will Need:

  • Fabric scraps
  • Fabric spray adhesive
  • Skewers
  • Scissors

Fold a Fabric scrap in half and cut a 2 inch by 2 inch square. Cut a triangle through the non-folded side of the square. Unfold, place a skewer in the fold, spray completely with adhesive and then stick both sides together. For the “host” flag, I hand-stitched my word on before spraying the pieces together so the back-side of the stitching could be hidden. It’s a completely unnecessary step but it could be fun for a small party, stitching guest’s initials on each flag, perhaps “bride and groom” for a wedding, or a short message for a birthday. Whatever floats your flag!

diy drink flagsHappy June and happy official summer month! New seasons always bring me so much optimism. I usually have some sort of mental picture of how I’m of course assuming that this new glorious season will go. My picture for summer? Georges Seurat’s “Sunday Afternoon.” Of course Cali is too hot and 2013 is too modern for bustles and long sleeves, Sunday afternoons are of course usually spent frantically catching up for Monday mornings–not lounging on river banks, but isn’t that painting just summer perfection in theory? And on June 3rd, theory is all we’re working off of.

And since I’m talking about ideals, something that is less than ideal and rather a pet peeve of mine is forgotten drinks at parties. I hate it. If there are 12 people at a party, why at the end of the night are there 34 cups? Why???? Of course you could do the sharpie next to the plastic cup stack as an age-old cup-saver but you could also DIY your own drink flags and save yourself the 34-cup-problem and keep your summer party snazzy not just in theory.
