DIY No Cost Christmas Decorations

It's rare that you see a DIY project and have all the materials at home that you need to do it. 

Yesterday afternoon as I was having a cup of tea and reading my favorite blogs I came across this great DIY project at Button Bird Designs.  All you need is paper scissors, tape and a stapler! 

 If you've never visited Angela at Button Bird Designs, you are in for a treat.   I've never met her in person but I'd love to!

So this is the project:
It's an amazing star that her daughter made at school and she shows us how to make it.  It is SO easy!! 

Kind of like cutting out snowflakes when you were a kid.
 I just used copier paper but wouldn't they be interesting in paper from an old book?

I made several and hung them in our sunroom windows.

I made one smaller one and was going to make some more. 
Should I make some more or is 3 enough?
What do you think?

They look pretty in the daylight too.

Try them.  They are really fun to make. 
Then show us some pictures and make sure you tell Angela about it. 
I'm sure she'd love to know.
Centsational Girl is having a Holiday Craft Party today so I am linking up with her.  You have got to go and visit.  There are so many great ideas there!

  1. They are really pretty, Rhondi. I'm on my way over to have a look.....

  2. Hi Rhondi,
    That's a hoot! I hopped over to Bird Button Designs from your blog yesterday and saw the same snowflake. I printed out some old sheet music to make some of them today! I love how you've placed yours on your windows. I'm thinking of hanging mine from the ceiling. Gotta love no-cost decor!

    P.S. Glad you're still posting! :)

  3. More is always better! The first graders made some at their holiday party last year...just took them longer than it took me. Very good reminder, I'll have to make more.♥♫

  4. I love them - no, you don't have too many! I've seen these and wondered how to make them. Think I may try some.

  5. Rhondi I am a follower of hers too and saw this wonderful Christmas craft earlier this morning and am definitely going to give it a try! For something so simple made from a piece of paper it is elegant and impressive! Yours look fabulous especially hanging in the window like that, I love it!

  8. I'm so glad I checked back with you--another blogger is quitting with a great blog and I'm hoping she doesn't throw it away. So I wondered if yours was still online. I'm so glad I checked to see you are back. Your bedroom is beautiful and these stars look like fun to do! Enjoy the season!

  11. Just found your blog and I love the stars. Hope to make some with my little grand daughter this weekend. Thanks

  12. Thank you Rhondi, I've been trying to find this pattern ever since I saw it a year ago. The stars look so lovely...make lots!

  13. Rhondi, these are so pretty. They look great on your sunroom windows. And, I would like the smaller ones added in, too.

  14. They look fabulous the way the light is shining through them. I'm going to check out Angela's sight. I hope you're are doing well. Hugs, Terri

  15. They are just lovely! "Podso" told me about them. I think we'll give them a try ourselves!

  16. Wow! You are a Christmas crafting genius! So glad I found your project via Centsational Girl.
