Need a splash of holiday décor for this weekend? Here’s a fun centerpiece idea, using only a couple of materials – easy, quick and inexpensive! The red and white stripes are perfect for the 4th of July holiday, but will work well throughout the summer and could be incorporated into winter decorating as well. What brings to mind a flag’s stripes one season just as easily can remind us of candy canes in another!
Materials: Empty oats container, paper straws (these were from Crate and Barrel, but are widely available) and a hot glue gun.
One easy step: Using the ridge of the container as a guide to help line up the straws, glue the straws around the container.
