A little spark when off in my head when I saw this simple paper straw garland...
*spark*... why not add pennants?
So here it is. And it's so easy to make.
-Paper straws (I got these at hey yo yo, but you can get them cheaper in bulk here)
-Coordinating card stock
-String and needle (a quilting needle works best, something with weight to it)
Cut out your card stock into triangles, however big you want them and however many you want.
I had two to each straw. You could even try letters, circles, squares...etc. whatever. Just make sure they measure up to each straw since you'll be attaching it to them.
Place hot glue across the tops of each pennant then place paper straw on top. Again, make sure you measure it out before you place on the straw.
Then, string in your needle/string through the straws.
