Paper straws are not only great for parties and adding a festive touch to an otherwise plain party cup. They also make for a fun crafting tool and an easy way to add color and pattern to your seasonal project.
- Paper straws in Halloween colors (I used approx. seven packs of 12 straws)
- Baker’s twine
- Craft glue
- Ruler, pencil and craft scissors
Sketch out the letters B-O-O and E-E-K the height of a paper straw. Since straws are straight, the letters are square than rounded at the curves. Cut out.
Cut a length of bakers twine, loop it around a letter and double knot the ends together.
Apply glue to a section of the letter and adhere the straws. Use a ruler to measure and cut straws for smaller sections. Once the straws are set, trim them at the corners and edges.
Hang on your mantel, in a doorway or use as decorative wall art.
