DIY (321) – Shiny star

Hi everyone!!!

Would you like to make your own Christmas decorations with materials that most probably you have already at home?

Then, you have to go for this project.

The result is amazing and you can do it also with your kids.


DIY N. 321



cardstock ( you can use cereal boxes which are not too thick and for this reason more flexible) – aluminum foil – hot glue – scissors – pencil – ribbon – template (below)

Cut out a 3d star template and trace it to recycled cardstock (you need 2 of the same exact size).

Fold a star piece in half at every corner and shape the star. Repeat the same with the other piece.

Take a piece of aluminum foil and crumple it with hands carefully.

The better the foil is crumpled, the nicer the star will be.

Now cut a piece of foil a little bigger when a star and wrap the corners. Video shows how to do it in detail.

Shape the star again, it will be easy. Repeat the same with the other star detail. Make sure that the shiny side of aluminum foil is on the front side.

Glue any waste paper inside each star detail, glue a ribbon if necessary. After that glue both star pieces together. An important tip! The more paper/foil you insert and glue into a star detail (fill also the corners), the easier it will be to glue the parts together.

Glue star pieces together carefully. It’s the most responsible part of the project. Hot glue does its job very well but be careful not to burn your fingers.

And you are done!

I hope you liked today’s craft idea!!!

See you tomorrow with another DIY.
