Making these stars is as simple it gets and mindless to boot! I did 'em all by hand, too - not that I wouldn't want a Crikket (see, I don't even know how to spell it!) but I don't do a lot of crafting. Any-hoo...these are easy and slightly addictive and would look wonderful in Christmas trees!
After I took the time to make my own star stencils...
I found this at a local thrift shop for 75 cents...woo-hoo!
I used sheet music (OF COURSE!) but for directions, plain paper is easier to see. Trace the star with a pencil - it's less noticable than a pen...
and start folding...so easy!
on all five points.
...ta-da, it's that simple!
I used three different sizes...two to five inches. The mercury vases are from TJmax and Home Goods and the doves are from last Christmas season, bought at a small local shop. This display is sitting on the living room bay window and is another peice of my minimal Christmas decorations.
