Paper Straw Stars

Oh first star I see tonight I wish I may, I wish I might.....



I wish that everything was as simple as these stars, all you need is some paper straws, hot glue and a little ribbon. Here's the step by step pretty self explanatory.







Once I finished I didn't really like those end bits, so I just covered them with some ribbon and then added a ribbon loop.


Tada


DIY Delight or Disaster? Oh too simple and too cheap to make, fun for the kids as well, delight! I love Christmas crafts!!!


Thanks for reading,

  5. Those are cute, & I'm pretty excited because I am the owner of some paper straws. Also, I can wield a glue gun with some accuracy. So I'm feeling pretty inspired right now- but I have to know- did you customize your glue gun?! Because most people customize their cell phones, I'm just sayin...
