  1. Another fun and easy craft I wouldn’t have thought of myself. Wrapping tape around the yarn is a great tip!

  2. I remember making these when I was 4 and 5. Maybe even older. I used to cut the straw into really little pieces and loved to make necklaces from them. I think Becca still has one I made for her!

  3. We did this recently with dyed pasta, but this is a much easier (and less messy) idea that I think my daughter would love.

  4. Hey Mary Anne – what a brilliant blog! I love this idea… now to work on the kids part! I’ll have to borrow some or wait a few years! Kxxx
