When I saw these stars in Lowe’s Creative Ideas magazine, I knew that I would have to make a few. They are incredibly easy to make. All you need is paper, scissors, and a stapler. I used contractor’s paper that comes on a big roll because I knew that Mama could use the rest of the roll on her house renovation. After I made my stars, I spray painted them gold. I punched a hole in the back of each star and attached a short length of string. The stars are hanging from handy 3M hangers. You can find the directions for making the stars here.
I made the red trees last year. I simply wrapped five different sizes of styrofoam cones in ribbon. The ribbon is held in place with sewing pins.
These stars are a fun project to do with kids. My niece and I made a star after dinner on Thanksgiving. She loved making it!
I’m also posting this at Funky Junk Interiors for her Saturday Night Special.
