One of my favorite hobbies is creating seasonal home decorations from random household items.

These adorable striped paper straw stars are no different. They are quick and easy to make, inexpensive and perfect for repurposed Christmas decor.

Directions:

Fold each straw in half and flatten in the center.

Unfold each straw and place them on top of each other in a snow flake design.

Hot glue the straws together in the center. Let glue cool.

Glue a bottle cap on each side of the star. Then glue one or two buttons inside each bottle cap.

Cut twine whatever length you desire. Thread the twine down inside one of the straws and carefully squirt glue into the straw. Allow the glue to cool to be secure.

Hang the striped paper straws in a window, doorway or anywhere to add a bit of Christmas cheer!
