Where does one get straws like that?  We are having a huge Mexican-style barbeque--I would love some cool straws for the adults kids!

I got them and the cilanto at Target of all places. And in the dollar section, no less.

If it wasn't right inside the door at my Target I would forget about it. I just happened to notice that they had some chili pepper themed stuff so I poked around and found this stuff.

PinkMafia, please feel free to rip up the felted necklace to use the felted beads in your own manner.  I didn't want to just send you supplies (i.e. the sugar skulls).

No, they are wet felted. 

Needle felting isn't my thing.  I do it for details but details only (like the eye ball felted beads I made in the monster swap).  I enjoy wet felting more.

Let me know if you ever want more....to make them pretty and not lopsided takes a bit more time but it is so worth it.  I have seen some with seed beads on them and they are very cool.
