Now let’s talk sports beverages. As in sports viewing beverages. Because, seriously…after all of that you definitely didn’t think I actually played any sports, right? But again, I love the social aspect. I like hanging out with friends. And when you’re with friends there needs to be great food and your favorite drinks like Coke Zero, Cherry Coke and Vanilla Coke. There’s even a special Coca-Cola NCAA® Final Four Pack available at Walmart to help you celebrate.
To festive things up a notch, I’m also going to help you make ridiculously easy but super cute sports straws. Perfect for any sports related activity. Well, any sports related drinking activity. Don’t take them on the field or the court. You could lose an eye! To make your straws, you’ll want to print out two of the ball of your choice for each straw you want to make. Grab the clip art above for this if you like, or find your own. I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette, but you can totally cut these by hand. Make sure you make your balls at least an inch in diameter. Any smaller will be too small to secure to the straw. I think approximately an inch and a half is perfect. At least for this project.
Grab a handful of your favorite straws. If you’re not on team #PaperStraws, don’t worry. This totally works on plastic straws, too. Even on bendy straws. Maybe not on crazy straws, but hey…give it a shot.
Apply adhesive to the back of each ball and press together over the straw to secure. I used my glue dot runner which worked super well for this. Just pop your straw in the can and you’re ready to watch the game.
