I have always loved the classic starburst design. Speaking of which, do you call it starburst or sunburst? I never quite know which one to go with, but for the sake of this post, I’m sticking with starburst! Regardless, it is one of those decor pieces that will never go out of style. I now have three of them in different rooms in our home. However, this is the first one made out of paper straws. Yep, these are paper straws that look like bamboo. How fun is that? It could totally pass for a high-end bamboo starburst wreath, don’t you think?

Starbursts often come with a mirror in the center and I think they look especially good above a bed or a dresser. You could even glue a round mirror in the center of this wreath if you wanted! Also, paper straws come in a million different colors and designs, so you can mix this up and create whatever look you want to match your decor!

Add another straw in the middle of each of the four quadrants, eyeballing it so that they are spaced equally.

Continue adding straws, spaced equally between the previous straws until you have covered the wreath form with 32 straws.

Step 4: Cut smaller straws

Cut smaller straws to fill in the remaining gaps.  I cut a variety of straws 6.5″ inches long and some 5″ long.

Add a 5″ straw and a 6.5″ straw between each of the full length straws. Continue until you have filled the entire wreath.
