Have extra straws lying around? Don’t waste them. Make Flower Using Straws! This is a great project to do the kids!
How to Make Flowers:
Make five equally spaced cuts on the straw that you want to be the center and then close it into a ring. Flatten the remaining straws and bend them to shape. Lace through a straw, then in through a section of the central circle, and repeat. Insert one by one all the petals and then the stem to which we practice a more or less central cutting to insert the leaf.
