A FUN HOLIDAY DIY: Ornament Party Cups

If you are looking for a way to add a little more festive whimsy to your holiday party look no further. These ornament balls turned party cups are perfect for sipping drinks out of and lucky for you they are easy to create.

What you need: clear ornaments (I used the Celebrate It glass ornaments from Michael's), paper straws and a Dremel tool with a drill bit.
Step 1: Remove the metal hangers from all of the ornaments and use a Dremel tool to drill a small hole in the top of your ornament. This will be where the straw will go. Thank you to my sweet husband for always helping with my projects.
Step 2: In order for your ornaments to stay upright when you set them down, use a hot glue gun to make a ring around the bottom. Make sure the glue dries completely before setting down your ornament.
Step 3: Insert your straws in to each metal top to ensure they fit and trim down to size.
Step 4: Make up a batch of your favorite fun and festive drink and use a funnel to pour it in to your ornament cup. Then embellish (I used a spring of rosemary.)

CHEERS!
