Hi Friends! I love all of the pretty paper straws that I have seen in store, on party blogs and on Pinterest but dang, they are pricey! Today I will show you how to make them and yes they really work. I left one in a glass of water overnight and it was still fine the next day. Here is a bucket of straws I made:
Here are the supplies you will need:
Watch the tutorial to see how easy it is to make your own!
If you are just making these straws to use on craft projects or scrapbook pages you can skip the wax. If your wax is hot (like right out of the crock pot or just removed from the stove) you do not need to wipe off the excess, it will drip off. If you get a drip of wax at the end of the straw you can snip off the end of the straw with scissors and it will be fine. Just think of the custom straws you will have at your next party! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
