• DIY Star Garland

    Over the next few weeks I’m working with Home Depot on a few festive crafts that are easy and fun to transform your home during the holidays. The first is this easy star garland. You can drape it over your tree, a doorway, a mantle, fireplace, or hang them from the windows. So many possibilities and an easy project for the whole family to work on together.

    Here’s how to make one in 5 easy steps…


    Supplies: White craft foam, glue gun, star cookie cutters in various sizes, scissors, natural twine, pencil, x-acto knife. And featuring Home Depot products:

    Rust-Oleum Universal All Surface Metallic Pure Gold Spray Paint and Primer in One

    Rust-Oleum Specialty  Gold Glitter Spray

    Rust-Oleum Specialty Silver Glitter Spray Paint

    Step 1: Using a star cookie cutter as your guide, trace and cut out stars of various sizes from your craft foam.


    2. For the outline stars, cut out a large star and then a smaller one inside using an x-acto knife.


    3. Spray paint them with the three Rust-Oleum paints. I added just a touch of glitter spray paint, don’t want to overdo the sparkle!

    4. When dry, using your glue gun to string them along a natural piece of twine.


    5. Hang and drape along your Christmas decor!

        Hi Suz! I got those at a little hobby store here in town. I did get the fake snow there though (I’m obsessed with that stuff!)
