10 DIY Projects With Drinking Straws – 10 New Amazing Drinking Straw Crafts and Life Hacks

Absolutely awesome craft ideas using drinking straws – DIY room decorations, bracelets, earrings, lights, jewelry organizer and much more. Everything is very easy and creative :) Hope you'll like this video as much as my old video (DIY Bracelet Out Of A Drinking Straw - ;) I start with absolutely easy but incredibly cute bracelets. You will need just a drinking straw and a pencil sharpener. ;) The second project – is DIY Jewelry organizer. You will need 2 set squares (triangle rulers (30°-60°-30°)), 4 drinking straws and 8 thumb tacks. Try it with any color and size :) The third of ten projects is a candle jar with stained glass effect :) Take a glass, double-sided tape and drinking straws of any colors you'd like. I show how to make a rainbow jar. Next DIY consists of 3 in 1, actually :) I show how to make beads of drinking straws and three ways of using it – bracelet, earrings and scrunchie. You'll need a candle, cold water, drinking straws and rubber band (you can use hair elastics). Fifth idea – is a perfect way to decorate your home plants. I love this idea, because I have many potted plants and the decoration way with drinking straws is absolutely fantastic. Plants' soil can still “breathe” (unlike decorative stones), it is light, so doesn't press on plant's roots and it is beautiful! And recycled! ;) Moving to the sixth project – great DIY bracelet idea. Seriously – cool! You will need an iron (turn it on the maximum high), parchment paper and drinking straws. Use any size of straws diameter, any color, experiment... But, be careful! After melting straws with iron give them 15 seconds to cool before touching. Next – DIY Lamp with drinking straws – or DIY Colorful Pompom Light out of drinking straws. You will need bendy drinking straws, LED light bulb (make sure it doesn't heat up more than 40-50°) and a hot glue gun. Just a tip – don't glue straws to the ceramic part of LED bulb – just to the plastic part. Eighth DIY is a bracelet. Similar to the previous one, but with cut straws. I love the mosaic effect! Do you? :) Ninth – is a life hack :) If you're tired of solid natural color of your string lights – use drinking straws to improve it. Choose the color fits to your mood, change it everyday... I like this project, because it is impossible to find lights of colors which drinking straws could create – purple, violet, neon pink, lemon yellow etc. And the last, tenth project – is a necklace. Melt drinking straws with iron and cut any shape you like. I cut the heart shape, using pink+red+white straws, but it could be a green clover, purple star or black musical note... :) Follow me on Instagram: Follow me on Twitter: Follow me on G+ : Welcome to my blog: Love.

How To Make A Heart Wallet Out Of Clear Tape And Glitter - DIY Glitter Heart Wallet

In this video I show how to make a heart-shaped glitter wallet made of clear packing tape. All you'll need is a clear tape, glitter and paper. Here are few tips to make this DIY project: make sure your paper hearts patterns are big enough for things you want to put into the wallet. use different colors of paper and glitter. Gold, holographic, silver etc. instead of sequins for the inner heart use little paper hearts, or hearts cut out of aluminum foil or any metallic candy or cookie wrapping :) if it written or drawn something on your plastic bag with slider zipper (it is often written “date” on those bags, because they are good for food storage), you can remove it with nail polish remover. if you have just one magnet – use a little coin as the second part of a fastener ;) And the last one – you can make as many pockets inside as you need. Or even just an blank heart of tape for photo ;) Follow me on Instagram: Follow me on Twitter: Follow me on G+ : Welcome to my blog: Love. Create. Discover. Idunn

DIY Teddy Bear Out Of Clear Tape – How To Make Clear Tape Bear Nightlight

Super easy and absolutely adorable way to make a light-up teddy bear out of clear tape. Cheap, easy and unique – my style :) Enjoy creating awesome original things out of ordinary regular stuff as much as I do. By the way, my DIY teddy bear is 40 cm high, but you can make it of any size, depends on balloons you'll use. So, to make this cutie you will need: clear tape (I used wide packing tape (48 mm wide, and it was written on the roll 66 m – which means it's total length). I used all this roll of tape for the whole bear. 2 balloons (size 28 cm – when blown). One for head, one for body. 7 balloons (size 12 cm – when blown). Two for ears, four for paws and one for tail :) plastic wrap (for food) LED fairy lights (if you want to make it as a nightlight) Follow me on Instagram: Follow me on Twitter: Follow me on G+ : Welcome to my blog: Love.

How To Make Working Water Dispenser – DIY Desk Water Cooler

In this video I show how to make a water dispenser or water cooler. It works and made of regular stuff anyone can find at home! Super easy! Pour it with lemonade, ice tea or any other drink and enjoy! For my DIY super-duper cool-cooler and beverage dispenser :) you will need: Empty Pringles can Empty Nutella jar Empty toothpaste tube drinking straw THAT'S ALL! Just few tips: 1. Make holes diameter equal to the drinking straw diameter (2 holes – 5 mm each, drinking straw – 5 mm) 2. Close the toothpaste cap tight! How it works... Well, hahaha, I'm not sure how exactly. I was just following my intuition when I was inventing it. But the main rule – the air, which comes through the drinking straw, pushes on water and it runs through the hole. If you will not close the toothpaste cap tight – water will drip. This means that air still can come through the drinking straw. Close it well – and the water will not drip! Amazing, isn't it?

In this video I show how to make decorative baskets of different shapes for desk decoration and organization. You can store your stationery, make up, keys or craft things in them and use them as a beautiful tray for your desk.

I show how to make a heart-shaped basket, gold star-shaped basket and rainbow round basket, that looks like a birthday cake :)

And I start with the most easy – DIY Heart Basket. You will need a piece of cardboard, drinking straws, ribbon, drawing pins and hot glue.
Instead of using drinking straws you can use old useless pencils (just cut them with the knife) or bamboo skewers.
Instead of a ribbon you can use strips of paper or cut your old T-shirt for strips (as I show in the video).
Instead of drawing pins you can use pompoms or beads :)

Measurements! As I used a ribbon 1.5 cm wide – every piece of drinking straw was 5 cm high. I knew I was going to make three laps of ribbon, so I multiplied 1.5 cm by 3 (three laps) and added 5 mm more just to be sure it will be enough space.
These measurements I used for every basket in the video. For example for the star I used 1 cm ribbon, and I wanted to make four “laps” of it. So my drinking straws pieces were 1x4=4 cm each plus 5 mm. So 4,5 cm :)
And the same for the round basket. 1 cm ribbon x 6 laps + 5 mm = 6.5 mm each drinking straw piece.

Make sure you have odd number of drinking straw pieces NOT even! The weaving will not work if you'll have even number of straws. I used 25 straws for the heart-shaped basket.
Just in case :) - odd number is the number that is not a multiple of two. If it isdivided by two the result is a fraction (examples 1, 3, 5, 7, … 21, 23, 25... etc).

What for are drawing pins? They prevent ribbon from slipping off the straws.

About DIY Star Basket. StarBasket lol :) All the same, but I covered the cardboard bottom with a beautiful craft card stock (you can cover it with yellow paper, gold paper or just paint it).
It is much easier to situate straws on the star – for one for every outer corner, for one for every inner corner (so it id 5+5=10 already) and 2 straws between the straw in outer and inner corners. But! If you'll make it as I have just wrote – you'll got even number of straws. So just throw one away ;)

And for the DIY Round Rainbow Basket I used 6 ribbons (width 1 cm each) or different (rainbow) colors. I start weaving this basket as two previous (with the loop for the first straw and going on over-behind-over-behind the whole lap) but secure the end of it for it's start (the straw with the loop). The second ribbon I start to weave from the straw next to the first one and repeat the previous steps. And the third ribbon I star from the first straw – exactly as the first lap. Fourth ribbon – exactly as the second lap. Fifth ribbon – as the first (and third) lap. And the final sixth ribbon – as the second (and the fourth) lap.

Try different shapes – crescent, rainbow (bow), diamond etc. Try different colors of ribbons or paper strips... Get creative!
