New Years Eve is right around the corner. And while it’s super easy to drink champagne straight all night, if you’re hosting a party or staying in, change it up and make some French 75’s!

They’re quick to make and delicious. My boyfriend and I, Molly made a huge batch as punch for our party last year and had to make at least 5 more batches. It was very high demand!

Now if you’re celebrating this year, here is a very easy and festive drink topper for you to get in the spirit!

How To Make DIY Gold Fringe Drink Toppers

Glue your skewers onto your hexagons using heavy duty glue and let dry for about 30 minutes.

Once dry, using your fringe scissors, make strips that are long enough to cover the width of the hexagon.

Using the craft glue, glue one piece of fringe to the very bottom of your hexagon and work your way up.

Layer on about 4 – 6 pieces of fringe. Turn the wood over and carefully trim around the edges of the hexagon. Repeat on the backside.
