You can make art using plastic straws and cardboard to make a unique picture.

Step 1: Supplies Needed

  1. Straws,
  2. Scissors
  3. Cardboard
  4. Popsicle sticks
  5. Hot glue gun
  6. Hot glue sticks

Step 2: Straw Lengths

You may want different straw lengths, so cut different sizes of the straws.

Step 3: Making Your Picture

You can use hot glue to glue the pieces of straw to the board. Just be careful not to burn yourself.

Step 4: Finishing Up

You can glue some popsicle sticks to the back of your artwork if you want, to help hang your picture. I used hot glue to glue the popsicle sticks to the back. If you use hot glue, you might want to remove all the strings of glue that might be on your masterpiece.
