Drinking Straw Crafts

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.)

Straw-flowersThe straw flowers are really a dime a dozen, but these are really pretty gorge. By GCD Spa Stuff.

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.

I know it’s a little early to be thinking Easter egg crafts, but seriously, come on. I could not resist sharing these precious dye-ving eggs, originally from Spoonful with you!

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.


Straws make the perfect frame for kite crafts. Found these on Make and Takes.
