Picture of Epic String Star Wall Decor
2012-11-15 15.48.31.jpg
My walls have looked rather plain since my husband and I moved in a few months back, so I decided I would make some awesome decorations to go up on the walls.  I used to make these all the time back when I was in grade school, and they look REALLY awesome! 

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.)
Needle
Ruler
Pencil

Step 1: Choose Your Backing!

I chose cardboard because it was what I had on hand.  You can also use foamboard for a more polished look!

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.
