Crafting with the Katies: DIY Some Paper Straw Stars for Your NYE Party!

Happy New Year! Crafting with the Katies has one final craft to say goodbye to 2022 and hello to 2023!

If you’re throwing a New Year’s Eve party, this is a great addition to your decor: some DIY paper straw stars!

For this project, you’ll need:

  • 25 paper straws in the color of your choice
  • Twine or string
  • Scissors

To make this DIY, follow these steps:

Step one: Cut your straws in half. You’ll want to have five pieces.

Step two: String your five paper straws either with twine or string.

Step three: Once you’re done with that, tie off the ends of your string. Leave your string a little long so you can create a loop for your star to hang on.

Step four: Make a “house” shape with your straws. Then, take one side of your “house” and fold it over the other side.

Step five: Take the top of your star and fold it over the middle and inside your star.

Step six: Adjust your straws to make a star shape!

And you’re done! You can also make bigger stars by using the full straw instead of half.
