Watercolor Straw Flags DIY

For our 4th of July barbeque this year, I thought it would be festive to add mini American flags to the drink straws. So Caitlin, one of our crafters, painted a bunch with watercolors – and I love the way they turned out!  To make this project super easy, I’ve included her template below. Just print the flags, cut them out, and glue them to some white straws. Voila! It’s such an easy way to liven up your drink table. (PS – Don’t you think they’d be a fun compliment to this 4th of July Fiesta Garland?)

Materials: Single-Sided American Flag Template or Double-Sided American Flag Template, Scissors, White Straws, Quick Dry Glue

Step 1: Download and print your preferred template.
Step 2: Cut the flags out along the lines.
Step 3: Wrap the tab on the flag around the straw and glue. Be sure to place it ¼ of the way down the straw so that you guests have room to sip.
Step 4: Let dry and serve with a delicious summer drink!
