Last year, I was addicted to making garlands. I’d make one almost every day and give them out so I could make more! Here, you can see the garland I gave my daddy last year.

My mommy asked me if I could make something to give to daddy for Father’s Day… without even thinking, of course, I said yes 🙂

Maybe she expected a greeting card or something else other than…

Yes! I made him another garland! I figured that paper straws would have a lot of other uses that for drinking. As crafters or makers, we can and should innovate, find new ways of using things.

I collected straws of blue and cyan shades, then punched holes. Each hole shouldn’t be too close to the edge to make it more durable.

Wrap washi to the string that you’re going to use to make it easier to barbecue the straws 😉

The little in boy in the house was so happy playing with the garland. Fortunately, it was sturdy! 😉

I will make this a tradition. Every year, I would make a garland for Father’s Day using different materials 🙂
Again, Happy Happy Father’s Day!
PS What other craft projects can you use paper straws for?

    Hi, I'm new here to your website and I'm so happy that I found it. It's comforting to know that we have talented and creative people like you here in Manila. You would not believe how many times I've complained about how hard it is to find themed paper straws here and other stuff you can use to have a themed party. I only used to think these things exist in the States! Thank God for you and your group. I think I will drop by one time when there is a workshop or a bazaar available. 🙂 Good luck!
