Tabletop Tiki Hut Instructions

A tiki hut is a familiar site in tropical locales and often serves as a favourite watering hole at resorts. If you are having a party with a tropical theme, you can make your own tabletop tiki hut bar with a few supplies. Get some inexpensive Hawaiian grass skirts at a party supply shop, then use them to create a tiki hut display on a tabletop in the dining room or on the patio.

Place the heavy rocks in the plastic bucket. Fill the bucket with the play sand.

Insert the golf umbrella in the sand. Open the umbrella.

Cinch one Hawaiian grass skirt loosely closed, and place it over the top of the umbrella. Make sure the grass hangs over the umbrella edge.

Cinch another grass skirt tighter, and place if over the first skirt. Cinch a third skirt very tight, and place it over the second skirt.

Cinch the fourth skirt to the size of the plastic bucket, and attach it to the top edge of the bucket with double-stick tape. Trim the grass skirt to the top of the tabletop with scissors.
