A basic straw gets a tropical makeover
Tools and Materials
Green crepe paper
Green plastic straws
Cut crepe paper into 1/4-by-3-inch strips, with the grain running vertically; you'll need 3 strips per straw. Shape 1 end of each strip into a point. Using small pieces of tape, attach leaf bases around 1 straw, near the top. With your fingers, gently spread the center of each leaf so it bends slightly outward.
