Hi there! Holly here from Club Crafted again with a DIY that will add a homemade touch to a party or just to your bar cart décor. These 3D gem DIY cocktail stirrers are made with Mod Melts and an ice cube mold, and not only do they help you stir up a drink but they’ll help you identify which drink is yours if you make each one unique. With Mod Melts and paint, these must-have bar accessories come together very quickly!
3D Gem DIY Cocktail Stirrers
Gather These Supplies
Step 1: Heat up the Mod Melts gun and slowly dispense the glue around the inside of the gem mold. Go slowly and be sure to fill in every crevice, tapping the mold on a hard surface every few minutes to settle the glue.
Step 2: Continue until the mold is completely full. Set aside for several minutes until the top is still very tacky but not fluid. Then insert a plastic stir stick into the middle of the gem shape.
Note, you can use clothespins to hold the sticks in place while the glue dries! This will prevent them from falling to an angle while drying.
Step 3: After about 30 minutes, the top should feel completely dry and hardened. Carefully remove from the mold.
Step 4: Paint at least two coats of paint on the Mod Melts portion of the drink stirrer and let dry. For best results, spray a sealing paint over the paint to reduce the potential for chipping over time.
Your cocktail stirrers are ready to use! You can reuse them as long as you hand wash the plastic stick portion thoroughly between uses. They’re useful, but they’ll also add a pretty pop of color to your drink, whether it’s a party or just a Friday night at home.
