Step 1. Gather your materials.

Step 2.

Print and cutout your selected city skyline. We chose to go with NYC!

Step 3.

Glue the cutout to a black piece of construction paper.

Step 4.

Glue down the first straw.

Step 5.

Use a craft knife or scissors to trim the straw where necessary.

Step 6.

Use the same color to cover each building.

When you come to an area with no building, fill in with a black coffee stirrer.

Step 7.

Keep filling in with straws. We decided to create a pattern with our colors, while still keeping each building just one color.

Green, Yellow, Orange, Pink

Step 8.

We made the Empire State Building antennae sparkle with silver glitter glue.

Step 9.

Add glow in the dark star stickers to make the night sky come alive!
