We love being creative with ordinary objects. Live wildly in a crafty world, we know anything that we are going to discard has the potential to be perfect materials for our next project. Today we’re getting crafty with our drinking straws. Drinking straws do not only have to be used for drinking. Drinking straws make good supplies for craft projects. Plastic or paper drinking straws can be the building materials for kid’s arts and crafts projects, party props as well as for decorative home decor. Here we have selected some of the best DIY drinking straw craft ideas and tutorials for your inspiration.
The useful properties of straw are due to its tough, hollow structure. It can be soaked, bent and twisted. Straw, like many other handicraft materials, is also renewable and biodegradable, which means that your worn out straw candlestick, decorative ram or whatever may be composted when it has served its purpose. The greatest disadvantage of straw is its flammability, which must be remembered when using and placing straw objects.
Most of these drinks come with straws in them, and tossing them away after use does seem like a waste, especially when there are so many fun things you can make with them.
