Rustic Star

As I was walking to the backyard last week from the front, I looked at the gate and thought it looked awfully lonely.



It needed a little something for the 4th of July, too!



I lucked into that little beauty one day at Hobby Lobby on sale for $5.00.



I originally was going to use 10 pieces of paper to cover it, but it was much easier using 5 and folding it.



Then just start mod-podging each piece on.



I probably could have added ribbon or something else, but I loved the simplicity of it.







I hung it a little high but I didn't want one of the kiddo's to run into the sharp points on it when they're out there playing.


Happy Friday!

I link to these awesome parties each week.

I love how that turned out! And I too really like the simplicity of it. It doesn't need ribbon. I need to petition to get a Hobby Lobby near me. lol

Very nice, Terri!

Terri that is just awesome! I have one of those stars and you've inspired me! Great project!

Donna Wilkes said...

How funny! I almost bought that same star to PAINT! You made it so much simpler - just use paper. It looks great! You might better warn the first comment about Hobby Lobby addiction!
