If you’re looking for a festive touch to your holiday party this year, make these Christmas ornament drink stirrers. It’s a simple DIY that will take about 10 minutes and costs around $10-$15.
You might remember these fun little drink stirrers from last year’s Christmas home tour when they made their debut appearance. I love them just as much this year as I did last and maybe even more!
These will add a fun touch to any holiday party you might be hosting or just for casual drinks with friends one evening. Either way, everyone will think you’re the hostess with the mostess. 😉
You can customize these with colors and patterns that reflect your holiday decor too!

DIY Christmas Ornament Drink Stirrers
- Festive Paper Straws – I opted for gold ones, but you could go with any color that fits with your holiday decorations.
- Mini Ornaments – Mine came from Target. I believe you can find them at Michael’s and Hobby Lobby as well. Again, go with whichever colors/patterns you prefer.
- X-Acto Knife
Using the X-Acto knife, cut a small hole in the bottom of each mini-ornament. You want the hole to be a little smaller than the end of the straw so that the ornament will fit snugly on the top of the straw.
Place an ornament on one end of each straw. If you made your holes the right size, then you shouldn’t need anything else to hold the ornament onto the straw. If the ornaments are loose on the top of the straw, put a drop of hot glue either inside the ornament or just around the base of the ornament where it meets the straw to keep it in place.
That’s it! Easy peasy, super simple.
Have a designated spot for guests to drop their stirrers when they are finished with them. After the party, pull the ornament off the top of the straw and throw the straw away. This way, to create more stirrers, all you’ll have to do is just pop the ornaments on new straws!
I love that these also double as decor leading up the holidays.
Cheers (complete with festive drink stirrers), friends!
