Get into the summer spirit with our DIY guide to fun, colourful straws! The possibilities are endless if you infuse your straws with everything from ribbons, charms and tags. So raise your glass and add a pop of colour to your favourite drink!
For a simple look that’s no less striking, just attach a personalised sticker around your straws. The pattern on the straws does the rest of the work for you, which is why we used our birch print straws. They’re particularly perfect for a woodland wedding.
1) With our yellow and pink ribbons, we simply tied them to our straws with the tags. We tied the pink ribbon in a pretty bow, but we left the ends of the yellow ribbon loose and curled the ends around a pencil to put a springy curl in it.
2) With the blue straws, we used our twine to tie a tag and small wooden button to each straw.
Simply tie your tag and crown charms to your straw with your ribbon, and finish it off with a jewel adhesive on the tip of each crown!
The pattern and colour of your straws goes a long way to making your DIY straws a success. So choose carefully from a whole variety of straws in our shop!
