    Santa straw holder for holiday punch

    Once you’ve made your Christmas punch, why not go the extra mile and make an awesome straw holder from the empty pineapple juice can?! This Santa straw holder is so cute and so simple and easy to make. It’s such a fun addition when serving your holiday punch and takes it to the next level!

    What you’ll need:

    • Sheet of red glitter card stock
    • Sheet of gold glitter card stock
    • About 15 inches of black ribbon

    Start by washing the can to remove any residue, then dry completely. Carefully check for any sharp edges and use pliers to gently press them back against the can to prevent injuries.

    Cut the red card stock to the height of the can (mine was 6 3/4 inches tall), and secure it around the can using hot glue. (You may have to do a little patching in the back of the can.) I experimented with some different adhesives and found that hot glue was most effective for holding the card stock on. Once your red card stock is attached, cut a small square (about 2 inches by 2 inches) from the gold card stock. Using an exacto knife, cut a slit on either side of the card stock that is the width of your ribbon, and thread your black ribbon through.

    Attach the buckle to the front of the can with hot glue, and wrap the ribbon around the back, securing with hot glue. Let cool, then fill with fun party straws. I poured about 2 inches of dried beans into the bottom of my can to help the straws stand up a little higher, and to provide a little more stability as well. So cute, easy and the perfect festive touch when making the holiday punch recipe!

    Tips for serving Christmas punch

    • Serve in a large punch bowl with ladle so guests can easily fill their own cup.
    • Set out some fun holiday glasses similar to the ones pictured. Mason jars would be great too.
    • Line the rims of the glasses with red colored sugar sprinkles to create a more festive look.
    • Top holiday punch with fresh rosemary to add some greenery.
    • Set out a plate with more fresh cranberries, oranges and pineapple for guests to add as they please.
    • This Christmas punch would be delicious served with orange sherbet. You can either mix sherbet into the punch bowl or let guests add a scoop to their own glass.
