I recently was introduced to these magical little plants known as mini faux succulents. They are small, look like the real thing, and they are just perfect for crafting with. Now I have seen regular sized faux succulents before, but these little mini ones got my mind racing with possibilities. Today I wanted to share a super simple craft project (I almost feel bad calling it that since there is no real crafting involved) using these mini succulents. Drink stirrers!
Aren’t they just adorable?! I really can’t wait to use these at my next party. And wait until I show you how to make them, you will be blown away with the ease of this “craft”.

Gold paper straws
Yep. That’s it.
Simply cut off 2-3″ from the straws to make them a bit shorter for cocktail glasses or leave them full size for regular pint glasses. Then simply slip the end of the faux succulent into the straws.
Seriously, that was all I did to create these gorgeous stirrers.
Now of course the paper straws are one time use only. So when the party is done, simply remove the succulent from the straw and toss the straw. Then insert the succulent into a new straw for the next party. Done and done.
