  3. Get your running shoes on if your straws are plastic. Some of them will ping around the room as you cut them!
  4. Thread the beads onto the ribbon. You may find it easier to do this with a large blunt sewing needle.
  5. Tie the ribbon in a knot to secure.
  6. Then tie a pretty bow with the loose ends.
