Another project using magazine straws made for Altered Eclectics. We accept anything recycled, mixed media and hand crafted with the exception of cards and ATC's.
I made a whole coffee jar full of straws and then began weaving, using clothes pegs to hold my work if I had to take a break.
The biggest expense on this one is the spray paint that I used to knock back the colour of the print, but that's only a little from a large can of white primmer. These would be great to hide around the house filled with treats for Easter, the children may even like to make their own. If you make the straws for them they shouldn't even need scissors, just pegs and a little strong PVA glue.
Altered Eclectics challenge runs for the whole month so you have lots of time to come and show us your projects we'd love to see them.
I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:
Hiding In My Craft Room - Any Holiday
International Art & Soul - Recycling (Top 3)
We Love To Create - Anything Creative/Mixed Media
