How is it possible that every utilitarian object now has a design-y counterpart? Let's take the drinking straw, for example. Never did I ever imagine that I'd utter the words "oh my, what a darling straw you have." After researching for this post, I'm firmly dedicated to adding a straw craft to my book. (Floral straws from Emerald & Ella, amazing Birch-tree straws from Jazzy Apple Girl on Etsy, and Polka Dot straws from Shop Sweet Lulu.)

Alone, I think this straw garland by Crossing the Bugger-Dixon Line would feel pretty sad, but I love how she mixed it in with the dots. Super cute.

Tell me, if this jewerly by Creme de La Craft wasn't pictured in a straw round-up, would you really know that the gold triangles were made from drinking straws?

When I saw these coasters in Country Living magazine last summer, I gasped when I learned they were made from woven plastic straws.
