thank you Smiley
I used PosteRazor (free download, just google it) to size the picture and print it out the size I wanted over multiple pages. And then I traced the picture onto the foam board first and used Mod Podge to glue the straws down, you could probably use Elmer's glue just the same. Just make sure not to trace the design on too dark, the red and yellow straws seemed to be pretty see through. And good luck finding solid white straws, all of the white straws I found had colored stripes. I checked Hobby Lobby, Craft 2000, Flower Factory, Joanns, Michaels, Walmart, Kroger, The Dollar Tree, Big Lots an a Party Store. I even tried looking for clear straws. A lot of restaurants have solid white straws so I didn't think about maybe a GFS or some place that sells things in bulk or for restaurants. Or you could always take a bunch from a fast food restaurant. If you can't find them I used white balloon sticks that I found at Hobby Lobby that are plastic and hollow and they were they same size as straws but a little thicker so they weren't as easy to cut but I didn't need much white so it wasn't so bad.
