Spray paint and straws? Yes! For this project, use a zip tie to tightly hold together about 2 dozen straws. One by one, pull the straws out to form a “starburst”, and spray it with spray paint in the color of your choice. Because they are light weight, they can simply rest in an indoor tree, but for outdoor use or to hang elsewhere as a decoration, staple fishing wire on the end of one of the straws to form a loop.
I could not find step-by-step instructions for this– arg! But for the most part, I think the picture says it all. :)
