probably took about 4 to 5 hours.. I skipped lines when putting the straws in the chicken wire so it probably took half the time it was supposed to

This is really great, but I think I would worry about the straws melting.

Good job anyway.

I like your version better than the model.  Yours has a more free-form look I prefer.  Smiley

Following the tutorial there shouldn't be a risk of melting. Smiley
