DIY Paper Straw Bracelets

I received a lovely shipment of paper straws from Aardvark. I had never heard of or used paper straws before, so I was very intrigued. When my package arrived I tore it opened and I melted all over these straws. haha. Seriously, I giggled with joy at how adorable the different designs are. COLOR! They are packed full of bright, fun, and exciting colors! These are perfect for summer crafts and summer activities.  I had never used straws in my craft projects before, much less paper straws. The evening I received these, I decided to stalk Pinterest for some ideas. 

Aardvark Straws & Others Crafts

After an hour or so of browsing, pinning, getting sidetracked, and gathering all of my craft supplies, I settled on a few cute diy paper straw crafts. I am more of a scrapbooker than anything, so my craft supplies generally revolve around that. I had to work with what I had to make a few cute things with these stylish straws!

Okay, this idea was all mine. I seen something on Pinterest that inspired me, but as far as the construction, it was all me.

Aardvark Straws DIY Paper Straw Bracelet

How To:

  1. I picked a few Aardvark straw designs that looked good together. I chose a 4th of July design scheme, so I could wear this while I am outwith the family during the events.
  2. Then, I cut all of my straws at the same length.
  3. Next, I cut a very long piece of twine. I just guessed the length and cut it at the end.
  4. I tied a loop in the very middle, then ran both ends of the twine through both ends of the straw. I continued to do this until I reached the size that I needed. I checked the size as I went along. I'm sure there's an easier way to do this, but I like doing things the hard way lol. 
  5. Next I tied a button to the end with both strings. I found an adorable star button that matched perfectly.
  6. To fasten the bracelet onto my wrist by placing the loop around the button.
  7. Viola! That's it! Show it off! Be fabulous!

Aardvark Straws are better than any straws I have ever seen before. They are perfect for drinking and crafting. These paper straws are very sturdy. They will not fall apart in a drink or while crafting. I've used a few different glues with them and the glue does not bleed through. Honestly, I would be happy with a lifetime supply of the Aardvark straws lol.
