The other project I picked for our Red & White theme was this straw wreath. I was inspired by my friend Jennifer at Tatertots and Jello. I just cut a circle from a pizza box I had and glued the straws on. It took almost 100 paper straws. I found the best deal on ebay. Pretty simple, but did take a bit of playing with. Add a bow and I am very happy how it turned out.
Also I have had several people ask me about a picture in the last post. It is a cross stitch my mother made. Actually she has made all three of us one. She is extremely talented. Here is a close up of them!!
