If you are looking for a fun, easy, and inexpensive holiday decoration, you might like these paper stars. These are not my brainchild -- I have seen them in several places on Instagram and Pinterest, but I haven't seen any of the smaller version that I am making, so that's what I am mainly sharing with you. That being said, you can use my instructions with any size paper bag that you'd like to use.
I always have trouble finding New Year's Eve decor that isn't cheesy, so I fell in love when I saw these. I love the natural brown paper, although they would look good done with white or colored bags, too. I can also see them lightly sprayed with paint -- maybe a pretty gold or silver? Many people use them for Christmas decor, and you can even cut them to look more like snowflakes if you want!
