Growing up we always had plastic drinking straws in the house. In fact, that was my favorite way to drink chocolate milk. I especially loved the Krazy Straws that looped around in every direction. I loved watching my drink go up and down the straw.
Now that I’m older I am still kind of crazy about straws, but now it’s because straws are good for so much more than drinking, now I craft with them too! Plus there are even more types of straws then when I was a kid. There are plastic straws and paper straws. Do you want to know to know how you can craft with straws? I put this post together to show you exactly that, 7 fun ways to craft with drinking straws.
The first is this super-cute Straw Bunting Banner. This would be so simple to make and you really could make it to match any theme or party.
Another fun way to use straws in party decor is this Paper Straw Garland. I really like the pennant shape that each grouping of straws makes.
Ever need an easel? These Straw Paper Easels are so cute! They are little and probably won’t hold a lot of weight, but that doesn’t matter because they are just so cute!! I definitely need to make some of these.
My kids would have too much fun making these Straw Rockets and then launching them at each other. Maybe only I should make them so I can have my own weapon!
I have never been able to get the hang of knitting or crocheting but Straw Weaving looks pretty simple and I think I could do it. I could make some cup holders or add more rows and make a cool scarf. I think we should give it a try. What do you say?
These Drinking Straw Starburst are super awesome and you could do all sorts of fun things with them. Like fill a large glass vase with them, hang them from a banner, or use them as Christmas ornaments.
I totally want to make this Drinking Straw Sunburst. I love how she spray painted it gold. It looks so elegant and expensive. Not at all like it was made out of straws.
Have I changed your idea of what a drinking straw is for? I sure hope so. My favorite of this collection is the last one, the Drinking Straw Sunburst. Which one is your favorite? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
