How To Make Cocktail Umbrellas

I am pretty sure that I am not the only person who collected Cocktail Umbrellas for their dolls or to jazz up sorbets, ice creams and obviously cocktails.

Here are some simple steps to make cocktail umbrellas at home. You don't need really fancy (read expensive?) paper for these. I've even made some from crockery brochures!

Things you need to make Cocktail Umbrellas:
Bamboo skewers

How to make Cocktail Umbrellas in 3 easy steps:
1) cut a small circle of paper, about 6 cm in diameter, and make a cut along any one radius

2) Overlap the edges of paper along the radius and stick to make a cone

3)  Put some glue on the pointed edge of the skewer and pass it through the paper cone.

Prepare your own bunch today :)
