Since Mother's Day is fast approaching, I thought I'd switch things up and share a little DIY today. Mother's day is more than brunch and flowers, it's a time show your appreciation for all of the little things she's done for you. I made a set of vases for my mama from these beautiful birch print paper straws I found at Paper Source. My mom has always been an enthusiastic supporter of my work, even when it was just macaroni necklaces and finger paint. Because many of you are moms yourselves, I thought today's post should be a giveaway. All you have to do is leave a little comment to be entered to win your own pack of 144 birch paper straws.
Birch Straw Vases
1 Package of straws
2 Cans, washed and dried
Hot glue gun
Dot hot glue in the center of the can. Use a seam to position the straw vertically. Add straws, applying glue and placing straws flush with one another. See pictures below.
