How to Make a Milkshake for a Fake Display


You can create a simple milkshake display with only a few supplies. Fake milkshakes can serve as a great centerpiece for a 1950s-, rock-'n'-roll- or diner-themed party. This easy project doesn't take long to complete other than allowing for drying time, so you can make as many fake milkshakes as you wish.

Things You'll Need

  • Milkshake glass
  • Acrylic paint, white, pink or brown
  • Paintbrush
  • Plaster of Paris
  • Bowl
  • Stirrer
  • Plastic gloves
  • Paper bag
  • Rubber band
  • Scissors
  • Straw
  • Faux cherry, optional
  • Clean the inside and outside of the milkshake glass and dry it thoroughly.

  • Paint the inside surface of the glass using white paint for vanilla, pink for strawberry or brown for chocolate. Leave approximately 1 1/2 inches at the top of the glass unpainted. Allow the paint to dry.

  • Wear plastic gloves and use a stirrer to mix some plaster of Paris in a bowl with water, according to package directions.

  • Fill the glass with the plaster of Paris up to the unpainted line. Place some of the plaster mixture in a small paper bag. Tie a rubber band around the open end of the bag to close it. Snip off a bottom corner of the bag. Using it like a pastry bag, squeeze the plaster through the hole and form large circular loops on top of the plaster in the glass to resemble a whipped cream topping.

  • Insert a straw in the milkshake glass and allow the plaster of Paris to dry completely. Add a faux cherry on top if desired.
