Fun Paper Straw Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed.. the winner is lucky #57 Joanne!

T.G.I.P.S.F. everyone! 
{Thank Goodness It's Paper Straw Friday}

Why do I love paper straws so much? They are inexpensive, earth-friendly, totally craft worthy, and come in so many cute colors. Paper straws are completely bio-degradable and will compost in 3 months. They really are the friendliest straws on earth! 

Today I have a very fun giveaway from the fabulous Fun Paper Straw company. They carry a LARGE selection of paper straws in many patterns and colors. When you visit their store, you will also see that they carry many other products at CanDoChefs such as reusable bags, kitchenware, cutlery, and more! I've picked out a few of my favorite items to share with you.
Wooden Cutlery Utensils are great for parties and so eco-friendly

  1. Oh boy, I LOVE paper straws!!!

    I think I'd make the wreath, but put a glass candle holder in the middle and use it as a candle holder.

    Or, I'd use them for my Christmas caroling host house party.

    Or, I'd use them for a delayed New Year's/College National Championship game celebration.

    Or.......I should just win because I have so many uses for them. :)
