DIY HORSE COCKTAIL STIR STICKS
plastic miniature horses (I found these at the Dollar Tree)
8″ clear plastic drink stirrers
#8 drill bit
metallic gold spray paint
Carefully drill a hole under the horse deep enough to secure the swivel stick. Coat the drilled horses evenly with gold spray paint. Let the paint dry completely. Put a tiny bit of glue on the tip of the swivel stick and firmly push it inside the drilled hole. Let the glue dry completely.
