DIY Martini Markers
I mean, seriously!!! How cute are these????
To make these Martini Glass Makers you will need the following…
- Darice 2 inch Tassels in a variety of colors
- Darice 25 mm Endless Hoop Earrings
- Embroidery Thread
- Embroidery Needle
And look how great they look as Martini Glass Markers!!!!
Now juuuust in case you want to embellish these markers a tad. I’m going to show you a super easy way to make itty bitty teeny tiny embroidery floss pom poms that you can thread onto the hoops for extra cuteness. You will need to get this kind of Embroidery floss…bundled exactly like the picture above. To make the itty bitty teeny tiny pom poms…
- Take a 6 inch piece of sewing thread and tie and knot it around a section of the embroidery floss near the looped end.
- Then take your scissors and cut the entire section of floss about 1/2 inch from the knotted sewing thread.
- Do the same thing on the other side of the knotted sewing thread.
- Fluff the ends and cut the floss just like you would do with a yarn pom pom so that no random pieces are longer than others and stick out.Then use the long ends of the sewing thread and tie it on the loop of your previously made martini marker.
There is just something about miniature things…tassels, pom poms, you name it…that I find so darn cute!
I hope you whip up a few of these for National Martini Day today and enjoy a great martini with your friends!
