Barn Stars! Easy to Make 3D Stars!
Can you tell which 3D Stars I made or which I purchased?
Barn Stars, as they are seemingly called, are so easy to make! Making these stars are my craft of choice at the moment.
What you need:
Cardboard (cereal box works great)
Ruler or something straight
Here is how you make the folds…
I used an exacto knife to go over my lines before folding but a pair of scissors would work great as well. It makes for easier folding with straighter lines.
Some like to make barn stars out of tin, like a dollar store baking sheet or soda can. I have so far liked the cardboard and haven’t tried using tin. I think the cardboard would be easier to paint. Has anyone tried using tin and if so, how was it to paint?
Try a darker or lighter color along the folds for that worn, vintage look.
To make a bigger 3D star, for more of a statement piece, I’m going to take apart a cardboard box at the seams. A big moving type of box and make it out of that.
I may even glue gun two of them together and put some mini led lights in the middle!
These easy to make accents are quite adorable, don’t ya think?
