{Make & Munch} Refresh Bannered Straws & Rosemary Water

I know you’re thinking. Where had that {Make & Munch} series gone? I was bursting at the seams with ideas and even began designing printables. Then life and work got a hold of me, so I was never able to shoot any pictures or make the fun recipes I had been so eagerly creating.

Well, I’m back today with a really simple idea. It’s a great way to stay hydrated especially with the warmer seasons on its way (or so I hope!) and the craft is perfect for any get together. We had it with homemade pizza (recipe to come) one night and it was delish!

 Refresh Bannered Straws


  • Template
  • Colored or patterned paper
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Straws


  1. Print the template onto desired colored or patterned paper.
  2. Cut along the solid gray lines.
  3. Punch holes at the marked X’s.
  4. Weave banner onto straws through the punched holes.
  5. Stick into your favorite drink or display them in a cup alongside cool drinks for your guests to enjoy.

Note: I printed the gray template on yellow paper inspired by my Daydream In Gray & Yellow post.
