Independence Day is just around the corner, with just enough time to spruce up your place with some patriotic details! Our favorite crafting tool might surprise you….straws!
These red and white paper straws are bright and cheerful, and work in three different crafts! We originally drew inspiration from a Straw Wreath How-To we’ve featured on our blog before. Although it was originally meant for Christmas, we love that all you need to change about this is the ribbon color (try Royal or Lake) and you have a whole new look that screams U-S-A. (Check out the step by step instructions here.)
If you’re looking for something simpler, try one of our favorite summer kits, the Nautical Sailboat Kit to add a little playfulness to your bash. These are fun to make with kids, and make great place cards, too!
We also love this classic Paper Bag Pinwheels Kit for a timeless and whimsical addition to decor. Best of all, you can reuse these for future occasions!
