Just as I thought I was alllllll done decorating for Christmas, I was flipping through my Christmas home tour photos and saw this:
A big blank spot on my wall that was in desperate need of love and attention!!! We couldn’t have that, now could we? So I rounded up some materials I had around the house and got to work.
- Dowel Rod
- White Paint
- Paint Brush
- Needle & Thread
- White Ribbon
- Star Punch
- Sparkly White & Silver Scrapbook Paper
I first cut my dowel rod down to the correct size (okay, hubby cut my dowel rod down to the correct size) and painted it white. While I was waiting for it to dry, I cut out a million little stars from the scrapbook paper. (So there really are not a million, but there are a lot. 🙂 )
Then I just used my needle and thread to string them. I ended up doing seven strings of eight stars and six strings of six stars. The order was random; I just tried not to have too many silver or too many white stars together.
For the last star on each string, I went back through the holes a second time and tied a small knot at the end to secure it so my stars couldn’t fall off.
Then I just had to tie my strings of stars to my dowel rod, add a ribbon to hang it, and I was done!
And look– no more big blank space on my wall!
I really like the little falling star wall hanging as part of our Christmas decor, but I also think it would be a beautiful addition to a nursery or little girl’s room.
How have you incorporated stars into your holiday decor?
