DIY cocktail umbrellas

Cute mini umbrellas for bright and cheerful summer drinks

Our love of tiny cocktail umbrellas goes right back to our childhood when they were used as decoration in our ice cream desserts. Sometimes, we even took them home and stored them carefully as keepsakes. These bright little paper parasols are a touch of fun and perfect for livening up summery cocktails and lemonade drinks. Handmade in delicate pastel shades, they look rather effective and create a light and summery feel. We used the edding 1340 brush pens to decorate our umbrellas with quirky quotes and amusing sentiments. These brush pens are available in 20 vibrant colours, either individually or in the Colour Happy Box. And thanks to their flexible brush tip, you can vary the pressure and create fine or broad strokes to instantly give your writing a beautifully expressive calligraphic style.
