DIY Pancake Drink Stirrers

There seems to be great Internet debate over when National Pancake Day. I’ve seen September, I’ve seen February, I’ve seen March. I happen to think pancakes are worth celebrating on ALL the days, but since one of ’em happens to be March 3rd, today is as good a day as any to encourage you to have a pancake party in celebration. A pancake party with pancake drink stirrers, that is! Wanna know what these are made out of? Foam makeup sponges! Sha-ZAM! Raid your sister/mother/roommate’s beauty stash or hit up your local drugstore and get yo’ pancake on!

1. Trim the upper and lower edges of your makeup sponges to give them a less rigid feel and more of a pancake shape. Additionally, cut one of the sponges into a bunch of little square shapes. (This will be your butter!)
2. Paint the sponges a pancake color and paint the butter squares yellow. Let dry.
3. Poke the bamboo skewer through one of the pancakes and repeat with two others, forming a stack.
4. Finish it off by sticking the butter right on top of that skewer, covering the tip. (Secure with a bit of glue if necessary)
