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.
