DIY Retro Straw & Paper Cup Reindeer

Estéfi Machado shared this adorable idea on her blog this week with retro party straws, so we thought we’d show you if you’re looking for ideas to make with Little Free Radical’s Retro Party Straws!

 

Supplies Needed:

2 Retro Party Paper Straws
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Red Cardstock
Permanent Marker

Her blog is in Portuguese, so here ‘s Google Translate’s rough translation into English:

  • 2 straws of paper, cut into 4 parts
  • In the photo you see the proportions, 1 large, 1 medium and 2 small.
  • It is not a rule, but it helps to look that elk horn.
  • Make diagonal cuts always, it helps to mend the pieces!
  • Hot glue or instant, and then shove the whole horn in a hole made in the side of the cup.
  • It all fit, no need to paste into the cup.
  • Make the 2 sides.
  • The little ears are 2 pieces of red cardstock, which also sunk in the cup, making a “butcher”, a rasguinho with stylus.
  • And finally, little eyes and muzzle permanent marker!

check out the photos on her blog of step-by-step how she did it,

and be sure to go tell her you love her if you love her idea!

And Little Free Radical is currently well-stocked in straws if you’re looking for some! :)
We just got brown in as well if you want brown antlers!
