Let’s “Taco-bout” it! Every year we celebrate this special day with plenty of food and drink! So, add a finishing festive touch to your Cinco de Drink with this drink stir perfect for your fiesta. This project is so easy to make, create enough to use as decorative food picks too!
Let’s make it!
- Ping Pong Balls
- Plastic appetizer picks
- Precision Knife
- Hot Glue
- Mod Podge
- Polycrylic Protective Spray
- Colorful Streamers
- Colorful fabric ribbon
Puncture a small hole in the ping pong ball using your precision cutting knife.
Insert the plastic pick into the hole securing it in place with hot glue.
Let it sit until it’s firm and cool.
Find a styrofoam ball to set the picks in while it sets and continue to work. Decide on the color palette you want to use and cut small, thin strips from the streamers.
Using a foam brush, cover the ping pong ball with Mod Podge spreading it all over.
Carefully lay the streamer paper strips on the mod podge covered ball. Continue to layer the strips and cover the with another layer of streamer paper.
Add designs elements using the other streamer colors.
Set aside to completely dry. While it’s drying, make more ping pong pinata balls.
Next, cut a circle out of cardstock.
Cut into the circle to create an open notch. This will allow you to create a cone shape from the cardstock.
Cut 3-5 ribbons about 4-5″ long.
Tie them in a knot at the top.
Wrap the top of the knot inside cardstock circle and create a cone. Glue the end down.
Once the pinata ball is dry, cover it with polycrylic protective spray and let it dry.
Add glue to the bottom edge of the cone and stick it to the top of the Pinata ball.
Add a some bling or embellishments to the final project. And make some more!
Before you use the pinata stir, wipe the stick clean. Add limes to anchor the pinata stir in a glass and add to your cocktail of choice, or use as table decorations. This Pinata cocktail stir can also be used as decorative food pick!
