Drinks parasols


Another lovely craft project for Papermash by Livy from A Field Journal. Livy used these mini pink doilies, skewers and wooden button plugs (optional) to make these lacy drinks parasols, but you could experiment with pretty origami paper and a lace craft punch. If the good weather lasts, I might even feel tempted to source my very own large pink parasol... Instructions for the project are here.
