Several months ago I shared some photos of oddball supplies that were piling up around my house, including lots and lots of plastic drinking straws:
Well, I finally have the finished project to show you -- some colorful woven straw coasters that are feautured in the July issue of Country Living.
These were a lot of fun to make and would be a cute 4th of July project if you whipped them up in red, white, and blue! You can get the full set of instructions for these and a bunch of other warm-weather crafts on Country Living's website.
Now I just have to get my hands on that drink recipe...yum.
