Make your rustic Christmas star
- Using ribbon or string, lay out a star shape on your board to get an idea of where you want the nails.
- Gently hammer in five nails to form the points of the star.
- Use ribbon to form the star the same way you would if you were drawing one on a paper.
Start at the top of the star and leave a generous tail for making the knot. Gently twist the ribbon as you go to make a more defined star shape. Arrange the ribbon how you like it, then add a little dot of hot glue to the next nail and stick the organza down. (without the glue dots, you’ll have to pull the ribbon tighter to keep it on the nails and the ribbon won’t look as loose and flowy)
- The the ribbon in a loose knot.
- Add a small piece of pine bough and jingle bells.
- Trim the ribbon the way you’d like it.
- Add a hanger if you’d like it to hang.
These could easily be made into patriotic decor as well – just swap the jingle bells and pine for something red, white, and blue!
