Before Christmas I spent a gOOd bit of time cutting out STARS.

No joke-

a LOT of them.

I wanted them for holiday decorating, for REsale, and for an afternoon of play with some young nieces!  (pictured are 3 of said characters!)

a few of my (silly) girlies!

oh my STARS!

oh my STARS!

oh my STARS!I dug through my wood stashes~and found a good variety to play with!

I’d already drawn out a bunch of star shapes till I was happy with one, then printed it out on heavy card-stock paper in different sizes—to create a pattern.

I cut out my stars on a band saw.  I want one SO badly, but can’t afford one yet.  The strippers are pretty kind to let me use theirs—I bring FOOD BRIBES!

I sanded the edges of all then– Painted some, Decoupaged others on one side, and just left some RAW.   Drilled holes at the drill press for jute string to hang them.

Had a lot of fun cutting out those thick “PUFFY” stars—which I’m keeping!
