Things you will need
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- paint or water based stain
- assorted decorative accents like ribbon, bells, beads
My stars are usually fuller looking so I use 8 clothespin for each star. First you need to take them apart and set springs aside we will work with those later.
Hot glue clothespin together really tight .
There are so many options that you can go about painting clothespin. Since I am a really plain kind of a girl I like to stain my stars or paint them white.
When paint dries out you can start to hot glue 4 pieces together, then add next 4 pieces and glue them to the inside of the star.
and then add another ones in between as shown below
You can decorate them or leave plain the way it is. I love me some ruffia and wooden beads
Just because you can’t stop on one star let’s make some more. Love making Christmas Ornaments. Be creative and come up with your own designs. I stained some of mines too.
All what I was using here, were little cut wooden cutouts that you can find at the Dollar Tree or any craft store.There are so many ways you can use them to decorate your house with! Hang them, lean them on the shelf or wall or make them be a part of your wreath. I will show in the later posts how to decorate with them.
I almost forgot about clothespin springs that I have on the side! Let’s work with those now
String the springs together and make a start out of them too! You will need 10 of them
