Straw work is an amazing craft, and during a recent trip to Mexico I discovered the perfect place to explore my obsession with mixing palm leaves and straw.

Read my Summer 2017 Issue:

dried palm leaves

  1. Rip or cut the tips of the palm leaves into thin strips.
  2. With 2 strips, make a cross and secure the middle with thread.
  3. Add 2 more strips and secure again in the middle.
  4. Continue until you have a cute star.
