Tin Christmas Star

So, as all of you know, I went to Utah this week. While there, I was only able to visit a couple of stores. :( I wished we would have had more time, maybe next time. I saw a tin star that was covered with Christmas papers and I fell in love with it. I know you all probably have already made one of these, but I was slow to the attempt. I bought a 24 inch tin star on sale for $8.00...
I picked out 6 or 7 pieces of Christmas papers that I really liked. This year I am into the vintage look, so that is what I looked for.
I cut out a pattern of the the star and began to cut the patterned paper out. I then inked the edges and glued the paper to the tin star with mod podge.
Let the star dry overnight, and this is how it turned out...LOVE IT! 
As always, everything looks better in person. I think this year I just may decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving.....I am sure I won't be the only one!

  6. Tristen, the star is from Ben Franklins in Kaysville. I am sure other Ben Franklins have the star. We don't have BF in Vegas, but I am going to check out Micheals and Joanns this week.
