The other night I had a few girlfriends over for a holiday craft night! It had been a while since my last girls night and I was inspired by all the cute ideas on pinterest. I loved the striped paper straw wreath idea, but thought it was a bit cumbersome. For our craft, we made mini-wreath ornaments and they turned out so cute!
Before everyone came I prepared little muslin bags with all the supplies. Each person got a cardboard ring, sample straws cut to size, a silver tie, and plenty of straws to work with. All they had to do was cut the straws down to size (16 pieces of 3/4″, 1″, and 1 1/4″ each) and glue them together! The perfect chat-while-you-craft kind of project.
I invited 15 girls and was a bit overwhelmed by the 13 yes responses, but the day of 6 people canceled, so we had a nice group of 7. Thank goodness because my living room can only hold about 10 people max! Maybe next time I’ll pick a better location.
