I’m mostly about simplicity here. I want you to be able to pop along to this here blog and take away ideas that you can do yourself, sometimes in a matter of minutes, with a few uncomplicated items. And these DIY Valentine’s straws fall neatly into this category. With just a needle, some thread, a bit of felt and a straw, you have the cutest decoration for any Valentine’s beverage. I went with the classic red and white striped straw and some pink and red felt and am super happy with the adorable result. Give it a go yourself, literally one of the easiest ways to Valentine’s up your drinks this February.
All you have to do is cut out a bunch of hearts in different sizes from any kind of felt you like, place a straw in between two hearts of the same size and colour and hand sew a couple of stitches either side of the straw to keep it in place. Repeat for as many straws as you like. Voila. All is done and your straws are beautiful.
