This was truly a SIMPLE project - the most difficult part is cutting the hard plastic straws - and that was made super simple and quick using Midwest Products Easy Cutter tool. If you use regular striped drinking straws, regular scissors would work just fine.
Three $1 bags of 12 peppermint striped hard plastic straws from the local dollar discount store were enough to create 7 of these ornaments.
To make the ornaments, punch or cut a 3” circle from a fun holiday paper. The paper will show on the back of your ornament so using something festive adds to the fun. Cut the center from each circle to create a ring approximately 1/2” in width.
Cut several straws into 1" pieces. Apply Beacon™ Tacky Glue to paper ring, and begin placing pieces of straw around circle as shown.
Cut several straws into 1/2" pieces. Mount smaller pieces of straw over longer pieces on each mini wreath.
Tie on a length of red & white twine from The Twinery and you’re ready to add your ornament to your plate of festive cookies. Make a fun coordinated holiday card or tag to share even more cheer.
