Swan Lake DIY Party Straws

I originally spotted these amazing swan straws on Pinterest by Shop Sweet Lulu

When I planned Sophia’s Swan Lake birthday party I knew I had to make these swan lake DIY party straws!

My versions of these straws slightly differ from the ones I spotted on Pinterest but I’m really happy with how they turned out!
