World’s Easiest DIY: Disco Ball Straws

diy-disco-ball-straws-for-parties-fabulistas1

You know, it’s hardly fair. We get all of these parties during November and December – chances to dress up and pretend we’re regular people again who spend their weekends in places other than the indent in our couch – and then, come January, it’s ripped away from us. We’re back to living vicariously through Pablo Escobar’s Narcos’ parties, which, now that I mention it, seems like a really bad idea because there’s no way I can pull off short dresses like that anymore and there’s a pretty good chance I’ll end up dead.

What I’m saying is I need a little more party in my life. As long as it doesn’t take much work. And preferably doesn’t require me leaving the couch. Because November and December were actually exhausting and now I just need to rest and have people bring me things and treat me like a delicate flower who binged on Christmas cookies for a week too long and needs time to recover because I think I have a dinner scheduled sometime in February. The life of a Party Girl is hard, people.

Which brings me to these Disco Ball Straws, which also happen to be a World’s Easiest DIY (aka one you can do from your couch). How adorable are they? You could use them for an actual real party, like a baby shower or kid’s birthday party and people would be super impressed, I’m sure.

You could also use them to brighten up your everyday like I did with my Bando Love Potion tumbler, which makes drinking water miles more appealing.

Who am I kidding? We know what we’re really going to use it for.

I’M SOLD! HOW DO I MAKE IT? 

It’s so easy, you guys, it’s insane.

1. Buy a strand of disco balls and a pack of straws. You’re going to get more disco balls than you need, but, being the party animal you are, you should have no problem finding uses for them.

2. Cut off all the surrounding string.

3. Shove a screwdriver through the disco ball, top to bottom. Two things I learned: Turn the screwdriver a few times to make sure the hole is big enough and then blow through the hole to get rid of excess styrofoam.

4. Push your straw through the hole made by your screwdriver. There’s a chance you might still get styrofoam in the straw, but I found a random chopstick is the perfect size to get it out.

Tah-dah! Now, snuggle up on the couch and get ready to party.
