With the weather cooling down up here and the radio already cranking out the Christmas music I'm so in the holiday crafting spirit.I saw this particular craft on Pinterest a while ago and have always wanted to make it so yesterday while I was at Home Depot I picked up five yardsticks totaling three dollars. I assembled this star in less than thirty minutes start to finish SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy.What you will need to make this project: 5-yardsticks,Hot Glue,Stain of your choice,white paint,a string of 100 lights.
First position your yardsticks to the desired shape,then hot glue them in place. Next Stain the whole thing front and back.
I stained mine outside on a wicked windy day so it dried fast.Then your going to paint over the stain when dried and let that dry as well.After the paint is dried I sanded it all over to give it an aged look then strung the star with the lights. Easy as could be and so very charming too!
For the paint I made up some chalk paint as I just like the look.
