Is it too early to be thinking about Valentines!? (Never!)  It is our favorite holiday around here, and here is an absolutely darling idea!
~ Embellished Sweet Straws ~

This is an easy peasy craft! All you need are these paper straws -{and you are in luck because we carry them at our store & in many colors}, cute cardstock, and non-toxic glue! You can also add stickers, cut-outs, ribbon, or other vintage embellishments if you want {we also carry bakers twine that would be perfect for this project!}

Simply use a heart punch or cut out hearts by hand, embellish them up, and glue to the straw!

Wouldn't these be darling served with strawberry milk on Valentines morning? Or at a school Valentines party? Or at your annual Valentines get-together? The possibilities are endless!
