Easter Surprise Straws DIY

I saw these fun straws at Target, and before I knew what I was going to do with them I took them home. (Currently in the Target easter section for $3 per canister.) These were going to be put to use, no matter what.... I obviously had to grab some jelly bellies while I was there as well so when I dumped the contents of my Target bag on my table when I got home, it occurred to me that they were made for each other;)

Use straws that are wide enough to slide down your favorite small Easter sweets (3/8 in.). 
(Jelly Beans, Tic-Tacs, Nerds, etc.)
Use bright washi tape  to cover and seal the ends. Make sure it is sticky enough to stay put.

These are fun to stick in easter straw for a party display or just hide them in deserving Easter Baskets.
Can't wait to surprise my little ones with these in a few weeks! 
You could also use just the green ones filled with green treats for a St. Patrick's Day DIY.
