Only 5 Fridays left! I have to be honest, I can’t believe it’s clicking my so fast.
As a part of the last 5 Fridays until Christmas!
I have a fun project for you today that costs almost nothing but your time and a gel pen! And it’s something you can do with the kids on a snowy day.And it’s agreat use of any extra cardboard you have lying around. Even old cereal or tissue boxes.
Make hand-drawn recycled cardboard stars!
These recycled cardboard stars are so fun and easy and all you need is and old box, a pair of scissors and a white gel pen.
First trace a shape of a star in the size you want and carefully cut it out of the cardboard. Mine are about 4 inches across.
After cutting out your stars, use the gel pen to embellish! I have a template at the end of the post of some pattern ideas. Most of my stars are jut a mix of these patterns.
You can add words, and do all kinds of designs. You can even try other shapes as well, like an ornament shape!
This one I did random dots that were closer at the base like falling snow flakes.
I ended up using some red embroidery floss to make hangers. These would be really cute gift tags too.
The white on brown actually reminds me of cookies. In fact,it kind of makes me hungry for cookies. 🙂
I think they add a nice natural element to the tree.
Here is the pattern template of designs if you want to make your own! Just mix and match them for a unique look.
I hope you are enjoying this Christmas project count down!
