Red, White and Blue Straw Frame
Make this Red, White and Blue Straw Frame to hold your favorite picture of a family veteran or service person. This would be a special gift to make for a veteran in the hospital or nursing home to remind them that you remember their service. It is a great craft for all of our patriotic holidays.
Picture frame (I got mine for $1 at Michael’s)
Blue polka dot and red striped paper straws
Hot glue gun
Jute rope for trim (optional)
Cut straws to length … enough to cover the top, both sides, and bottom of frame.
Begin gluing the straws into place.
Add rope trim to the outside (with hot glue).
Add a picture … a cute printable … or anything, really, and that’s it! Display at your BBQ or just for fun in your home this summer!
