We started pulling out Christmas decorations a couple weeks ago preparing for a couple fun blog events in the near future. A couple days ago I started working on the Christmas theme in our study and created a fun DIY whimsical Christmas star for the tree. The study is for the kids to watch TV, do homework as well as a place where “us” adults can also hang out and not feel overwhelmed with toys. The room is just about finished and I plan on sharing our Christmas study reveal this week.
The theme of the room is bright, colorful and whimsical. For this DIY project, I simply rolled up scrap book paper and created a star.
I trimmed the edges of the rolled paper as the back was white. You can buy double sided scrap book paper which would work great but I wanted to use what I had so trimming off the edges did the trick. I rolled up 8 pieces of scrap book paper and used tape to keep them rolled.
I created X’s using hot glue to fasten them together. Once I was finished, I hot glued a fun glittered ornament to the middle.
This took all of 10 minutes and the cost was minimal.
I moved around a few of the branches so the star would simply fit snug on the top.
I love how the stripes, words and patterns on the scrap book paper combined add a pop of whimsy to the tree.
This DIY whimsical Christmas star is fun and I think it turned out nicely considering it cost under $5. This space has been invaded with a combination of different patterns, colors and textures and hopefully I can get it photographed and share it soon.
