Paper Straw Snowflakes

I still have a large stash of gray paper straws from a baby shower that I helped to host.  I made some "snowflakes" out them to hang in front of my china cabinet. I just added some scrapbook paper circles with glitter adhered to them to attach the straws together.

I added them to the china cabinet along with some other decorations that I already had from last year.  I made a little banner out of doilies with some sticker letters to spell out JOY across the front of the cabinet as well.  Lots of inexpensive projects with some previously purchased decorations made this a budget friendly set up for me.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are looking forward to the upcoming holidays.

Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Hi Megan, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (, and I’m visiting from Farmgirl Friday.

    These are fantastic! I'm always so envious of people who can look at something (like straws) and turn them into something beautifully different (like snowflakes)! Good for you...

    Anyway, thanks for posting this. If you’ve never visited yet, I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…
