So, while I've given up trying to do this for the upcoming competition, I'm in need of straws. Or straw advice..
I'm trying to make a lamp base and I figured that using crazy straws would be most excellent. The problem with that is that they're just so thin.. how could I wire them without pulling apart my wire? ..Assuming that half the wire could fit in there. I'm still doubtful of that.
Solution... maybe bubble tea twisty straws?
Problem... I don't think they exist.
Now I could be wrong but so far all I've been able to find are the normal bubble tea straws, or normal twisty/crazy/bendy straws. I don't want to give up! Has anyone seen anything like what I'm looking for?
Or maybe someone has an idea of what I could use to make said 1/2" diameter twisty straw? (or larger, larger is good too!)
If you can help me I promise pretty pretty twisty lamp pics with a tutorial. I'm making my own lampshades too, the whole lamp from scratch really but it won't be nearly as cool without your help guys.
