Once I decided on the “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, One Year Old is What You Are” theme for my daughter’s first birthday party
, I scoured Pinterest for decor ideas. I came across a couple listings for star garland and after thinking the price was pretty steep, I had a bright idea….”I could do this myself!”
It came out as well as I could have expected- NOT a Pinterest fail- and was a fairly easy DIY project made easier with wine and Netflix in the background.
Here is what you need to make your own. I will list in parenthesis where I bought each item and link it if it is available online:
Note: you can modify/make this your own! I did twine for a more shabby chic look but you could do ribbon, a thin clear wire, etc!
1. Punch out your stars with the cutter
Tip: I punched around the edges of the paper first then cut with my scissors to remove the cut outs. This allowed me to get 5 or so extra stars.
2. Cut the twine to your desired length.
3. Place your star and put double sided tape along twine.
4. Remove backing to double sided tape and cover with second star.
5. Repeat to desired length and spacing.
6. Hang with tape and enjoy!
Note: I also used loose stars to add some interest to a couple banners and to spruce up the decor on a food table!
There you have it!!! A super easy DIY project that you can do while enjoying some wine and your favorite tv show! Even if you are not doing a star theme, check out the cutter
because they have a bunch of different shapes. This would be perfect for adding some easy, inexpensive decor to your next party!
