Carolyn Wainscott here with a DIY GALAXY OF STARS CENTERPIECE project that is eye catching and frugal, I mean, how much cheaper can you get than recycled cereal boxes.
Let’s take the candlesticks first-quick and easy:
all you need are:
a couple of rubber bands, candle, candy canes-9-11, ribbon or ornament
place rubber bands around candle, put candy canes into rubber bands, hide rubber bands with ribbon or ornament,
spread evenly around-voila-you are done
The stars will take a little longer. I used recycled cereal boxes.
download PDF star pattern:STAR PATTERN-FREE STANDING [two sizes on one pattern]
make template by drawing around star pattern then flipping over and draw around for other side of star
cover cardboard with: aluminum foil, wrapping paper, fabric [can also be spray painted]
cut out stars #1 & #2
cut slits-put stars together
Here is a short video tutorial using aluminum foil:
Your Galaxy of Stars will be simply smashing on your table, on the buffet, or even as ornaments.
Have a great time making these.
