4th of July Straws For Your Favorite Beverage

Easy to make 4th of July Straws


  • Red, White and Blue Straws
  • Seam Binding 
  • Decorative Paper
  • Flat-Backed Rhinestone Stars 
  • Double Sided Adhesive
  • Favorite Beverage

  •  Simply cut the decorative paper into long rectangle, wrap around a straw and stick ends together using double sided adhesive. 
  • Attach star rhinestone
  • Tie a loose, sloppy bow using Red,White and Blue seam binding.   Take all three colors in your hand at once and make two loops. Using kitchen twine, tie a knot in between the two loops making it a bow.  Tie the bow to the straw using the twine.  Leave the twine ends hanging loose.

 This project is so easy and can be customized for any theme or holiday.

 A simple way to make a child's drink really special. 

I also wanted to show you another use for the "sparklers' and patriotic rosettes.
 Attached to long wooden skewers they can be added to a simple flower arrangement. 
 Elevating a simple bouquet from the garden into something festive for your holiday table.
