My neighborhood grocery store has started to play Christmas carols, so the holiday season is officially on in my book. Have you started decking those halls yet? If not, I’ve got some ideas for you involving paper drinking straws. Yes, those stripey wonders that looked so chic in your summertime lemonade also work in the dead of winter! Check out these seasonable straw craft ideas and drink up the festive beauty.
If you’re the kind of person who sends holiday cards, first of all, you impress me. Secondly, if you’re already sending cards, why not go the extra mile and make your own? These cute trees from A Creative Mint are sure to earn a coveted spot on the fridge or mantel from anyone who receives them.
Speaking of mantels, this “strawburst” garland (get it?!) I spotted on Lemon Drop Shop would be perfect hanging over the hearth. Or you could drape some on your Christmas tree in lieu of the same old tinsel. It’s 2012, people. Shake things up!
Alternately, you could shake things up with this straw star tree topper from Strumpets Crumpets. (The angel won’t mind sitting it out for one year.) Head to Becky’s site to get the instructions and see how that thing glitters on the tree.
Which straw craft makes you want to drink in the holiday season? And do you have any craft material suggestions for me? Let me know in the comments below!
