Introduction: Red, White and Blue Paper Straw Wreath

About: I'm Jodi House. I share remodeling, home decor DIY and up cycling projects on a budget.

I went to the Dollar Tree and spotted these paper straws. Somewhere, at some point, I had seen similar straws used to make a wreath and I thought I would try making one. I grabbed 4 packages of the red, and 2 blue ones.

Step 1: Arrange and Glue the Straws…

I needed something to glue the straws to, so the first thing I did was cut out a cardboard circle to use as my base. It is not perfect, but I didn’t care as I knew you wouldn’t be able to see it anyway.

Next, using your glue gun, start arranging and gluing the straws all around the circle until you can’t see the cardboard anymore.

Feel free to add the straws however you want. I used more red than blue, but you could use all blue or all red, or alternate them, or do 2 red, 1 blue or whatever you like. Also, I cut some of the straws in half so I had different sizes and depths to work with.

Just keep gluing and placing straws until you are satisfied with how they look. So simple.

Step 2: Create a Way to Hang It Up

Lastly, I glued a piece of rope to the back so there was a way to hang it up.

Hang and Enjoy!
