5 Secrets to More Color at Home

DIY Retro Swim Frapp(uccinos)


DIY Retro Swim Frapp(uccinos)

There’s a story, of a Vanilla Bean lady. And GIRLFRIEND needed a little sunshine! Starbucks asked me to personify one of their Frappuccinos and I felt it was my duty to give Ms. Vanilla Bean a little retro sunbathin’ makeover! Ok, I mostly just wanted a flower swim cap for myself. But WE ARE ALL WINNERS HERE! So for those of you who might be throwing just one more big summer shindig, I highly encourage you to turn your drinks into the bathing beauties they were always meant to be.

1. Heat up your hot glue gun on the low setting. Add a dot of hut glue to the back (or the pearl, in our case, since we didn’t want the pearls showing) of each flower.
2. Attach to the dome lid, working your way around the lid as you go. Be sure to mix the colors up so you really get that swim cap look! Pop back onto your drink and you’re ready to dive in!
