It’s here. It’s finally here!
It also happens to be taking a giant bite out of my productivity this week.
What am I talking about…?
SHARK WEEK, of course!
It’s that little week in the Summer when you are glued to your tv in equal parts of both amazement and fear. (Unless that’s just me).
Not gonna lie, sharks terrify me, but at the same time, I am oddly fascinated with them too.
Definitely pro shark over here! I just don’t plan on swimming with them anytime soon.
I think I’ve got the hubs hooked on Shark Week now too. He’s not happy about it (which I know because he constantly complains about it) but I don’t see him getting up and leaving anytime it’s on tv either. (I’m onto him).
Do you look forward to it as much as I do?
First up, these DIY shark stir sticks!
They are really easy to make and add so much fun to your drinks!
And you don’t have to keep them for shark week. Use them for birthday parties, pool parties, or a fun shark themed event!
- Plastic Shark Toys (I picked up a box of them at Michaels)
- Wooden Dowels – size 3/16″, cut down to the size you need to fit in your glass
- Spray Paint
- Drill and 7/32″ drill bit
- Krazy Glue (optional)
Once you have all of the holes drilled, spray paint your sharks in whatever color you prefer. I used silver but other colors could be just as fun!
Once done, insert your wooden dowel into the drilled hole. If you want a really secure fit, apply some krazy glue around your wooden dowel before inserting and allow to dry completely before use.
Mine were a pretty snug fit so I chose not to use the glue.
These DIY shark stir sticks are also great to use as drink markers so you don’t lose your drink. Just use a variety of different sharks so that your guests know which glass is theirs!
