Stitch circles together
Now comes the fun part! Embellishing your Halloween Drink Stirrers. I used inkjet fabric sheet to print out various Halloween sentiments.

 

 

Cut the sentiments out and fork the ends, then glue them under a button sewn or glued to the center of the shapes.

Embellish with sentiment. As an option, machine stitch the edges of your fabric sentiment. Embellish the shapes for the Halloween Drink Stirrers with painted black laser cut bird shapes and more buttons.
