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 primitive Fall accents are quite adorable, don’t ya think?
Use them for Fall decor &/or Christmas decor as well.
