Weekend Project: Five Things to 3D Print for Your Cinco De Mayo Celebrations

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Are you getting ready to celebrate the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo this weekend? Prep for the festivities, which usually entail endless margaritas, music, and food, with some of these Cinco de Mayo-themed 3D prints!

Today is May 5th, and while that might seem like an ordinary day to a majority of the world, it’s a cause for celebration all across Mexico, as well as in the United States and other countries. The annual holiday commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire in on May 5, 1862, but for many people, it has evolved into a cultural appreciation for the amazing food, drinks, and music that have come out of Mexico.

Regardless of where you and your ancestors come from, there’s no denying that Cinco de Mayo is one of the most fun holidays around, especially if you love Mexican culture and cuisine. Why not use your 3D printer to help prepare you for the long day of margaritas, tacos, nachos, and salsa music? Here are five quick and easy things you can 3D print to make your Cinco de Mayo a special.

As some of these models will come in contact with food, we highly recommend using food-safe filaments when taking on these projects.

Margarita Glass Rim Salter

What is it? Nothing says Cinco de Mayo quite like a chilled margarita with lime in a salt-rimmed glass. This 3D printable glass rim salter can do the job for you. Not only does it have the word “MARGARITAS” embedded on it, but it can also be printed in the colors of the Mexican flag!

Sombero Hat for Your Cerveza

What is it? Hailing from Mexico, the sombrero is a wide-brimmed hat that helps shield your face from the sun. Why not 3D print a miniaturized version to keep the sun away from your beer? This 3D printable Sombrero is designed to fit over your bottle and give your beverage a bit of style.

3D Printed Taco Truck

What is it? Everybody loves a good taco, and oftentimes, you’ll find the best ones come from your local taco truck. You can now 3D print your own truck capable of delivering tacos into your very hands. This 3D printable food truck doubles as a taco holder, making it easy to prepare and place your taco down onto the truck’s bed.

Coronarita Holder

What is it? If you’ve never heard of Coronarita, then chances are you’ve never experienced Cinco de Mayo to its fullest. This cocktail mixes Corona beer and the classic margarita, making for a refreshingly twisted beverage for all (adults) to enjoy. With this Coronarita Holder, you can attach it to your margarita glass and hold the Corona in place, making for the ultimate drinking experience.

What is it? The best way to kick off Cinco de Mayo (besides with a Coronarita) is with a nice plate of chips and salsa. Bonus points if those chips are served on the sombrero of a 3D printed Marachi band member. He’s not big enough to hold too many tortilla chips, but what he lacks in size he makes up for with a seriously sweet mustache and guitar.
