I always get compliments on my star, people asking where I got it and such. They are so surprised when I tell them I made it.
and it is SO EASY.
What You Will Need:
Cardboard or Foamboard
Marker / Paint (if desired)
Embroidery Floss or Other String (the gradient color-changing ones look best for this, but I didn't have any.)
Step 1: Choose Your Backing!
If you don't want the yucky-brown of the cardboard to be the background, color with markers (like me!) or you can paint it.
Step 2: Make a Grid
Take your ruler and make two lines crossing each other at the middle of your cardboard.
Mark every 1/4" down each one of the lines, starting from the center, and make sure you have an equal number of marks on each line.
You'll get something that looks like an x-y plane plotty thing from math class.
Take your needle and poke a hole where each mark is.
