Fancy Pom-Pom Cocktail Stirrers and Appetizer Sticks DIY

I’m always looking for a way to FANCY up ordinary items.

As you know, I love Pom-Poms.

They are some of my favorite things and the possibilities are endless with them.

I decided to do a Christmas spin on an old DIY of mine.

Toothpicks are ALWAYS in serious need of some fancy.

I wanted our Christmas cocktails and our Christmas appetizers to have some pep this year and thus, these little cuties were born.

These are super simple to make and they make such a festive impact in a cocktail or stuck in an appetizer!


The Necessities:

Pipe Cleaners

Glitter Gold Jingle Bells



Hot Glue Gun

Start by twisting your pipe cleaners together. Just have fun with it. There is no right way to do this one! 🙂


Then pop on a dab of glue.


Add a Pom-Pom…


Or a jingle bell.


I made a bunch of different versions! The possibilities are endless! So much fun!


Cute, fast and simple! A must have for your Christmas festivities!


And seriously, how cute and festive are they in a Christmas cocktail?!
