MAKE: artificial silk flower DIY straws.
You make pretty flower party straws, of course! Duh.
I’ve had my reservations about artificial flowers for years, but it’s been kinda fun experimenting with this craft product lately. Since I had extra blooms from my recent silk flower craft projects, I started to play with them and figured I could add them to some straws.
These flower straws were very easy to make and would be fun to make for your next party or shower… or when you want to fancy up your cocktail on a Friday night sitting on the deck. Whatever floats your boat!
To make these festive floral straws, I used some straws, silk blooms, duct tape and scissors. (I used green straws and tape to represent floral stems, but you really could use any color.)
I pulled the flowers and petals apart.
I cut small slits in the centers of the petals to make the hole bigger, if needed.
Then, I just threaded the straw through the hole in the petal circles. I pinched the material layers together and used thin strips of green duct tape to secure them to the straw. (You could also use floral tape, but green duct tape is what I had on hand.)
If I felt they needed a little more fullness, I added another layer of petals below the first one and used more tape. That’s it!
These fun flower party straws are a quick craft and easy way to use up some old craft supplies. Plus, they elevate your lemonade from average to exciting and party-ready!
