Step 1: Materials and Tools
1. old calendar,
2. empty can,
4. diagonal cutting pliers
5. needle nose pliers.
7. steel wool
Scissors and steel wool are missing on the picture below but you can see them on step 2.
Step 2: Handling the Can
Step 3: Making the Stars
Make stencils out of paper in the shapes of a star in different sizes (picture 1), put them on the prepared piece of tin and cut the stars out (picture 2).
Make holes at the two opposite ends of the star using a needle (picture 3).
Step 4: Ring Tags
Connect the ring tags into a chain taking care that the ends are overlapping so that the chain would be stronger (pictures 2 and 3).
Step 5: Finish
If you curve the wire from the calendar at the ends (picture 3) and hang star chains on it you can get a wall or shelf decoration (pictures 4 and 5). Here you have to pay attention to making a balance on the wire and fix it with some glue so that the chains wouldn’t slide down.
Now you can enjoy your Christmas/New Years decoration!
