My Halloween Star

Not everything I make is digital.  In fact for this craft, I found myself browsing through a traditional scrapbook store, drooling at all the fun paper to choose from. 

I originally saw this idea on Pintrest and knew that I needed to make this star ASAP.  While my mom was in town for a visit, we went searching for the perfect star and Halloween paper.  It was a fun afternoon shopping with her.  We then came home and made it in an afternoon.  It was one of the easiest crafty projects I have done.  In fact, it was so easy, I finished my Christmas Star on the same day.  

All you need for this craft is . . .
  • 1 Rustic Star (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
  • 9-12 coordinating scrap booking papers
  • Modge Podge
  • Spray Glitter (my new love)
  • Coordinating Ribbon
Start off by making a template of your star sides - one for the right side and one for the left side.  I just used a piece of white card stock to do this.  Then start cutting out the pieces of scrapbook paper to glue on.  Tape the cut pieces of paper to the star to make sure you have picked the right place for each piece of paper.  Remove the tape, and modge podge the paper to the star.  Then modge podge on top on the paper to add a protective layer.  Once the modge podge has dried, take outside and spray the star with the glitter.  Let it dry for a few hours.  Add your cute ribbon and voila, you're done.  Easy Peesy Lemon Squeezey!!!
