How to make cocktail umbrellas

Drinks umbrellas

Cut circles of patterned paper 9.5cm in diameter. We used origami paper. Cut out a pie-shaped section and shape paper into a cone, slightly overlapping the straight sides. Use glue or narrow, double-sided tape to stick together. Dab a tiny dot of clear-drying glue inside the point of the cone and pierce the tip with a wooden skewer. Allow to dry.
