I've had a box of these wood sticks I found in a dumpster for over a year. I knew I could use them for something but it hadn't hit me yet.

I decided to glue the pieces into a star
  • 4th of july project
I stained the star with a rust oleum walnut stain and secured the intersections of the wood with a small brad

I made a star pattern and cut out some stars from left over Christmas ribbon. I also bought small wooden U S A letters at Walmart

Used the glue gun and played with it until I got it like I wanted. I found the little string of battery operated lights at the dollar store too.

Here it sits on my front porch

I think it's cute, basically made from things I already had a few dollar store accessories, left over stain and Christmas ribbon. This is something easy anyone can make and it doesn't take much time at all.
Happy 4th of July!
