First, We Will Make A Bracelet Out Of The Drinking Straws
Things You Need
- Drinking straws
- Needle and thread
- Jump rings
Steps To Make The Bracelet
Step 1- Cut the straw into pieces
The main element here is the straws so we will begin with the straws. Take the straws and cut it into tiny pieces. You can choose any elegant straw colour like white or baby pink for a beautiful bracelet. Make multiple small pieces of the same size. Use scissors to make equal partitions. We now need to make the bracelet so take a thread and needle.
Step 2- Stitch the straw and pearls into the thread
Get the thread and needle and insert a pearl at the end. Make a knot to prevent the pearl from falling down. After the pearl, add a straw piece to the thread. Keep the straw piece in a horizontal direction and sew it into the thread with the help of the needle. Keep inserting a pearl and a straw piece until the entire thread gets covered. Stitch carefully while inserting the straw to prevent injuries.
Step 3- Fix the hooks
Once you reach the end, add a small pearl at the end and make a knot with the thread. Now remove the needle and cut the extra thread using the scissors. The bracelet is almost ready. We just need to insert the closing and opening hooks to complete it. Thus, fix the ‘S’ shaped hook at the first end while the jump ring on the other end.
Here is our beautiful bracelet made from straw a pearls ready to use! You can make a similar necklace with straw pieces and can complement it with this bracelet!

Steps To Make A Beautiful Pair Of Earrings
Step 1- Trim the straw and make triangles
Take the straws and cut it from the centre. Make spilt straw while trimming it from the middle. This way, you will get 1 long open straw. Now we have to make a stunning 3D triangle out of this open straw. For that, fold the straw 4 times into small squares. When you fold it 4 times, fold it into the triangle 2 times and again as a square. When you will open it in the other direction, you will get a triangle formed. Now wrap the entire remaining straw to the triangle formed.
Step 2- Prepare more triangles
Keep wrapping the straw to make the triangle more thick and strong. At the end of the straw, you will get a fine thick triangle formed. Seal the remaining end using glue or fix it in the layers of the straw. Make 6-7 such more triangles for the earring.
Step 3- Prepare the earring
Now that we have our triangles ready, we will prepare the other earring parts. Take the craft wire and arrange the pearl and triangle in this wire. First, insert the pearl, make a small wrap of the wire to prevent falling and then add the triangle. Follow the pattern of one triangle and one pearl and continue it. Twist the wire and seal it with a small pearl.
Step 4- Give the finishing touch
In this small rounded wire, add the jump ring and also add the hook. Similarly, prepare the second earring following the pattern of one small pearl, large pearl, triangle, large pearl, triangle and the small pearl. With this, the beautiful pair of earrings is ready!
