My two youngest kids both have birthdays in the same month, which means a lot of fun but a lot of stress for this party planning mama. I’ve got a pirate party I’m starting to plan for my two little mateys, and I just made my first craft/project for the party that I wanted to share with you… some super cute DIY pirate straws that are a cinch to make!
To cut the mini skull, I made a Sizzix sandwich with a Sizzix Base Tray on the bottom, the magnetic Skull die on the magnetic base tray cutting side up, some white paper over the die, and a cutting on top.
I rolled it through my Big Shot, and ended up with my cut skulls. I whipped up a bunch of skulls to use at the party.
Once I had my skulls, I free cut some pirate ship sails out of black cardstock, then glued the skulls onto the sails.
Next I used my glue gun and placed a small dot of glue towards the top of the straw, and then stuck the pirate sail over the glue and pressed down.
Simple, right? And so cute! I told you these DIY pirate straws were easy!
I can’t wait to get started working on more of the party. I love all things pirate and treasure, and am using Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride as my inspiration. I’ll definitely be sharing more of the details with you soon!
