Hm... nothing comes immediately to mind. I never thought of making things from straws. I'm going to check out that drinking straw tag!

Oh: another question - Is it okay if the straws aren't visible? (but are still a main part of the project)

Use your best judgement with this one.  You want to make the straw(s) the feature one way or another.

Hmm not too sure on this so I am going to ask, can I cut up the straws into little bits and put them onto a base of other materials, so that the outside is all or mostly straws in little bits?
