So, I am not sure if I should say “good night” or “good morning” to ya. It’s 1 in the morning and I am up wide the scrap awake. Really Jade, scrap?  I think it might have a little to do with the fact that I went to bed around 8:30 last night. Well who can we thank for that?

My good friend Ricky Mic  earache…  Sometimes we don’t agree on the timing of this crap happening but it won last night. So I figured I would finish this amazing post for ya since Ricky Mic Earache didn’t let me yesterday.

INGREDIENTS

Jumbo Straws
Ribbon
Glass cup (you can use any glass cup you have)
Glass beads (you can get these at Wal-Mart also)
Metallic Spray Paint
Glue Gun 

Make sure to check your home supply before buying any of these materials. You might just have most of them already!

Lay out your straws.

Start spraying them with the Metallic Spray. You might notice once you start spraying the air from the can will push some of the straws around. You can even glue the straws onto the glass and then spray paint. Again, just whatever you feel most comfortable doing!

This is what they will look like once you spray them.

I found it easiest to put a line of hot glue down on the glass first.

Then quickly place your straw on top of the hot glue. Be careful not to touch the glue because this could burn you.

It’s starting to come together!

When you are done with all of the straws get your ribbon and place it on top of the straws.

Put hot glue down on one end of the ribbon.

Quickly wrap the ribbon to the other side sticks to the glue. You want to make sure your ribbon is pretty tight.

Can you believe how simple this is so far?

I had some fun ribbon laying around so I decided to embellished with it. You can use anything you personally like to “decorate” the outside with.Put different color ribbon around it, tulle or anything FUN! I glued the glass beads around my ribbon to dress it up a little. Once you finish decorating, voila!

It’s really that simple. I like crafts like this because it’s an easy way to get creative and decorate any space really quick. Keep in mind if you don’t have Metallic sprays, you can spray the straws ANY color!

Here is a picture of the printable I made last week. I told you it’s cute in a frame. If you want it click HERE.

I hope you had fun in Jaderbomb land today! If you have a minute say a prayer for the Gulf Coast. We are about to get slammed by Hurricane Isaac.

See ya in the next post!

    This is so cute – amazing that you can put up a tutorial with an earache… you are the bomb! But I guess you already knew that, since it’s part of your name. 😉 I actually love the glass too – only you would have a lovely glass that you decorate to make even lovelier.
