drinking straw garden

Spring offers up the most beautiful flowers. Show them off with this charming flower arrangement featuring an unusual material—drinking straws. It's easy enough that the kids can help!

What you'll need

  • a brick of florist foam
  • dried moss
  • drinking straws
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • flowers (ones with a narrow stem work best)

How to make it

  1. Cover florist foam with moss using hot glue.

  2. add holes

    Take a skewer, small dowel or sharpened pencil and poke holes into the moss. This will make it easier to put in the drinking straws.

  3. insert drinking straws

    Insert drinking straws into the holes. Trim them to the height you'd like.

  4. place flowers in straws

    Fill straws with water, then place a freshly cut flower into each straw.

  5. centerpiece

    That's it! Use the drinking straw garden as a centerpiece or anywhere in the home that needs a touch of spring.

    This would make a lovely decoration for a spring or garden themed party, don't you think?
