Making a one straw lei is very easy, it just take a little patience. Follow our steps below and watch the complete video on how to make a one straw lei.

You will need:

  • 1 Straw, size depends on size of ribbon or cord

  • Ribbon or Cord, can be white or the same color as yarn about 40 to 44 inches long

  • One to Two Skeins of Yarn in your choice of color

  • Tape

  • Thin Wire

  • Scissors

Step 1

Thread your cord or ribbon through the straw and tape the end to the straw.

Step 2

Tie the yarn to the cord or ribbon close to the bottom end of the straw.

Step 3

Start to wind the yard around the straw from the bottom to the top. Once you reach the top of the straw, push the yard down off the straw onto the cord. You can take the end of the yarn and tie it to the cord or ribbon, that way it doesn't come off the other end.

Step 4

If you are using two skeins of yarn tie the second one to the first one and keep wrapping. As you reach the end of the yarn leave about two inches and take the tape off the straw then the straw off of the cord.

Step 5

Tie the yarn to the cord two times. Then tie the two ends of the cord together two times. Spread out the yarn to the knot and fluff it out.

You should have a beautiful yarn lie.
