Striped Paper Straw Wreath

I was in the checkout lane the other day and I saw a wreath with those fun striped straws on the cover. It immediately caught my eye. And I thought “I have a few packages of red and white striped straws!!” And I went home and made one.

I think it’s so pretty along with my Stenciled Christmas Sign.

Here’s how to make one:

Supplies:

Dollar store Foam Wreath (is what I used)

Ribbon to wrap around the outside of the wreath

Striped Straws (I used about 75 straws – it will depend on how wide your wreath is) — I bought mine through Modern Palm Boutique.

Hot glue and glue gun

Ribbon for the bow

 

Here’s what I did:

1. I wrapped the wreath with some wide ribbon, overlapping and hot glued the ends down.

2. Then I trimmed half of the straws — 1/3 off the ends with scissors.

3. I hot glued each straw on, alternating between the long and shorter straws. I held each straw parallel to the wreath so they laid flat and uniform.

4. I tied a bow and hot glued it onto the wreath and added a little glittered snowflake.

5. To hang up the wreath, I hot glued a little piece of twine on the back of the wreath, making a little loop.

Super fast — about 1/2 hour total time.
