When I was a kid, we used to cut them into small segments and put them on a string for a necklace, curtain or tree garland.  You can make a funky 3D art project by sticking one end inside another.  The bends will help with the form.  Tie the spots where straws meet by wrapping them together.  You can make an open "ball" with that.  Sorry, I've got no new ideas.  Girlscouts has the source for all of these.

Yeah, I've made bracelets with bendy straws. They turn out very well!

You could glue them around a cup, or a round container... and it would make an interesting straw holder/something holder!

Pictures of what I mean:

1 is them just straight... 2 is them all bendied. (Sorry I didn't draw all of the straws. I wasn't THAT bored. hehe.)
