Personalize a party with something fun and glittery – like these paper straw flags! Dress up your beverage station with this easy tutorial.
Hello, Mod Podge fans! It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, and I’m so happy to be here today sharing a fun and easy tutorial with you all! If you’re anything like me, one of the best parts of entertaining is crafting those little details that really make a gathering memorable.
While I love the current paper straw trend, I couldn’t help but look for a way to personalize them and add one more layer of detail to my beverage station.
Paper Straw Flags
Gather These Supplies

- Paper Straws
- Mod Podge Matte
- Glitter or Other Embellishments
Step 1: Make or purchase your kraft straw flags. These are really simple to make if you decide to do-it-yourself: just cut 1/2″ x 2″ strip of kraft paper, cut one end to make a flag, and use an X-Acto to make two slits near the top to slide your straw through.
Step 2: Now that you have your kraft flags, it’s time to start embellishing! I used a pencil eraser to create dots, stripes and write out initials with my Mod Podge . . .
I also dipped the ends of the flags into Mod Podge for another neat effect . . .
