What’s special about a string of tiny stars? LOTS! These simple stars add so much fun and flair to my Christmas decor! And here’s the best part of this garland… they are not just for Christmas! Once you have this star studded garland it can be pulled out and used to embellish your home decor almost any time of year! I love projects that can be used more than once! Star garland is super easy to make too. Here, I’ll show you how!
Let’s make stars!!!!
Materials: white cardstock or scrapbooking paper, baking twine, glue stick, paper towel roll, Cricut electronic cutting machine
Cut out tiny stars.
I used my Cricut cutting machine to do this. You could also use a star punch, but invest in a Cricut… you can do so many cool things with it!
You can create stars using the”Insert Shapes”. I made my stars about 1 inch high. Then I copied and pasted lots of them on the page.
Here’s the cute little stars right out of the Cricut machine and ready to be taken off the sticky mat and made into a garland.
Put glue on a star with a glue stick. Lay the twine down on top of the glued star.
Top with another star. Align stars. Repeat. The process goes fast! I made my star garland while watching the news in the evening.
When it’s time to take down the garland roll it onto a paper towel roll so it does not get tangles and you can use it again!
This is such an easy peasy and inexpensive way to bring a little star power to your Christmas decor!
