Rustic Stars

Sunday, October 11, 2009

On our last Nature Walk, the kids and I picked up sticks for a little star project.





Really, this was just something to make together, with no intended purpose. Although now that we've started a little star collection, the ideas are flowing with uses for them and none of them have to do with the Blair Witch Project.



::Small Christmas Ornaments tied with red yarn; a star for the treetop;

::Hung from our porch with twinkling lights for a rustic outdoor chandelier or stuck in a planter with twinkling lights to make the season bright;

::Hung from the ceiling of the kids' cabin theme room;



You don't think my sweet little stars are cryptic, do you? I was going for "rustic."


I'm linking this up to Kimba's DIY Day & Kim's Get Your Craft On today!

Okay, how cute would these be sprayed red, white and blue for the 4th? And I don't even decorate for that holiday!

Me needs to be roundin' up some twigs for some ittybitty ones for my xmas garland ;)

With so many twigs on my property I could go crazy making twiggy stars! I actually made some similar to this last Christmas. I am busy with all my crafting for Christmas. Bon bons are almost finished and I will be revamping my wreathes and garlands. I'm taking photos as I go with plans for a whole series of 'Creating Christmas' posts throughout November so do pop over. Can't wait to see what other Christmas goodies you produce Kristin!

Wow...I took a walk on the path through our woods Saturday after dinner...picking up sticks with Dave/Pat to use as kindling for their fireplace! There's still lots more twigs for Belle, Boo and Baby....Just think of more crafts using twigs!!!!

They are darling! My son has an Americana themed room w/ lots of stars, but I was looking for some different ones to add, now I know where to get (make) them! Thanks

Ha, I did kinda think blair witch, lol. But really, they're pretty! I love when people use natural things in their decor. Ohhh, a bunch of these hanging from your light over a dining table, that would be cool. :)
