Drink it up!

I know that I say this everytime...
but I'm really excited about my newest project.
Although, I use the term "project" loosely.

How cute is this?

According to our reception site coordinator we'll need a couple bars to cover the number of guests (I never thought that I had a large family until I started counting :))

And what makes bars fun?

I mean, vintage paper straws in a dispenser!

Add a little bakers twine and some security envelope hearts and my "project" was complete!


1. Purchase one acrylic straw holder from Bed Bath and Beyond.

2. Purchase paper straws from HeyYoYo on Etsy.

3. Punch 4 (two of each pattern) hearts out of security envelopes using a heart-shaped paper punch (I think it's Martha Stewart brand).

4. Cut bakers twine to desired length.

5. Using a glue stick, glue two matching hearts together, sandwiching the end of the bakers twine between them.

6. Repeat with other hearts.

7. Tie around straw holder, securing with a tiny drop of Elmer's glue at the knot - if you use a tiny dot, at the knot, in a glue that dries clear, no one will ever see it and it will keep the string from falling down.

8. Place on bar and let guests enjoy their drinks!
