Decoupage Metal Star

You know those cute metal stars at the craft store?  Whenever I used to see those I would think "that is so cute, but does not match my decor... maybe a little too country?"  Anyway... I finally came across one at a craft outlet for only $3 and I couldn't resist!  So I bought that star and with a little bit of scrapbook paper and some decoupage I was able to turn that country star into something better for my home...  here it is, my decoupage star:


What do you think?  I kind of love it :).  It was amazingly easy too!  I just measured one of the sides and created a triangle pattern.  I then used the pattern on coordinating sheets of scrapbook paper and cut out 10 triangles.  I then decoupaged them to the star.  Let it dry and hung it up!


If you ever come across one of these metal stars, now you know it doesn't have to be country!  But of course, the country look is really cute too :).  I would imagine this could also be a really cute patriotic craft if you used red, white & blue paper.  I would love to see what you come up with!

Oh and p.s.... take a minute and vote on my poll @ the top left.  I'd love to get some feedback from my readers!  Thanks!

  11. I love this! I covered a star too, but went through the crazy trouble of covering each area of the star entirely. Your method looks so much easier... Great Job!
