THE BEST DIY
IDEAS

To make the umbrella: Glue a circle of card
with a 4cm diameter in the middle of a mini doily. Cut a line from
the edge into the centre and bend it into a cone shape, securing
with glue (2). Cut the paper straw in half. Glue this on to the
inside of the umbrella, then add a small button on top for
decoration. To make the mini picado flag: Glue
together two small rectangles of tissue paper, roughly 4cmx5cm.
Fold in half, then cut heart shapes and other patterns into it (3).
You can also use a single hole punch. Attach to a 15cm cake-pop
stick with double-sided tape.
