DIY Straw Garland + I’m a dreamer print

You may say I’m a dreamer…

But I’m not the only one.


I love this quote.




This week I made a super easy straw garland, (to go with my new, I’m a dreamer print)

that you could use for a beach party…


make a necklace with the kids this holidays,


a wall decoration,


a cool party backdrop,


a funky straw door curtain

(remember those plastic streamers that used to hang in the doors and stop the flys getting inside in summer? yay one of those!)




How to make a Straw Garland 

You will need:

Straws, string, scissors and a stick (optional)


Cut the straws into even lengths… (these were from Ikea)

Then thread on a string.

Once threaded to the length you want, tie a knot at the bottom and fray the edges, then make as many lengths as you require.

Hang individually or use a stick and make a wall hanging or Straw Door Curtain the size you require.


As I took the photos for this straw art,

I thought we definitely  need to make this into a straw garland door curtain, I think this would look so cool!



I’ve started to add more products to my shop,

just one of my dreams,

to design and make stuff that I love.

This print inspires me,

to believe…


if I really want something,

I can make it happen,

others before me have…




Here’s another quote I love from an old post about me

…I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night – there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest! (Marilyn Monroe)


I love to acknowledge achieving dreams and making them into art in our house.

I put my husbands on our wall, see here

I’m off…

to dream bigger,

… inspire myself,

that anything I dream and want enough is possible!


What’s your dream? Are you are dreamer like me?



Live with Love,





Care to stay in the loop? I’d love to have you!
