Happy Tuesday, friends! While in Target the other day, I happened upon the Poppytalk Beach Picnic Collection…have you guys seen it? Lots of colorful, coordinated, and just-plain-happy entertaining pieces designed by the popular blogger herself. I purchased a couple of packs of the beautifully-designed paper straws, and took them home to play with. What I ended up with was a cute and glittery garland that’s perfect for a party backdrop, a mantle or anywhere else in your home that could use a bit of sparkle!

Step 1: Take your straws, and, using a sharp pair of scissors, cut them into pieces roughly 1.5″. Using a foam brush, apply Mod Podge to one tip of each straw piece. Dip in glitter and lay on parchment paper to dry.
