Patriotic Wooden Stars


This is one more of those easy patriotic projects you can put together in about an hour and enjoy for a very long time.

For this project, four wooden stars, these is the wood that was used:

16' Lattice (¼" x 1-3/8")
16' Parting Bead (½" x ¾")
*The total amount spend on those 32' of wood was $10.18, around 30 cents per foot.  The wood was bought at a lumber center, where you have to buy at least 8' of material, but prices are good when you buy in bulk.



Lattice was used for the two big stars, ten pieces of wood were cut at 19" in length.
The parting bead for the small stars was cut at 14".



Once all the pieces are cut, you can go ahead and paint them.


Each star consist of FIVE pieces of wood.  Assembling them is easy using a hot glue gun.



On the small stars, because of the thickness of the wood, you might need to force the wood to stick together by clamping it.



Your stars are ready, but as a final touch jute was wrapped on some of the ends.




This is how they look on the shallow shelves in my dining room.





Again, one easy project that you can customized to your own needs.  I might be using them during Christmas later on this year. ;)

  7. I love them! I made some a couple of months ago using rulers. I decorated my son's graduation party with them. I like the idea of purchasing strips so that the stars can be any size you want. Super cute patriotic decoration!

  9. Cristina, where on earth do you come up with all of your cute ideas? I really love these stars, and they're so simple to put together. At least you make it look simple! The jute adds just the right touch, and they look great on your new dining room shelves. :)

  17. Love your stars also, will be making some of these too, use at holidays are you said you'd do, nice to be able to use for different seasons. Great tutorial. I'd need to use different glue than hot glue here in western CO as it's so dry hot glue dries out on things very quickly. I glue and clamp closed for quite awhile to be sure things are secure. Happy summer days.
