What You'll Need:

  • Paper
  • Straws
  • Scissors
  • Beads
  • 3 chenille stems
  • Paper
  • Colored ribbon

Make It:

1. Cut straws into 1/4" and 1/2" segments.

2. Thread beads and straw segments onto one chenille stem, leaving about 3/4" on either side.

3. When complete, twist one end to the end of another stem and continue beading. Repeat with a third stem.

4. Draw a 6" star on a piece of paper and use as a guide to bend the now long chenille stem into a star. Twist the last two ends together and attach ribbon to hang.
