How to Decorate With a Rustic Star
You can build a rustic star by using twigs, sticks, and denim. Here are the steps to follow:
Build a rustic star out of sticks
For this craft, you’ll need a bunch of sticks and a string. First, start by placing one twig on top of the other. Then, you’ll need two more sticks on the outside of the first one, so you can place them side by side. You’ll want to space the twigs out about an inch. Then, place another stick on top of that.
To make a rustic star, you’ll need to start by laying out three sticks. Secure them in a circle with wire or twist ties. Next, secure two sticks on the inside of the star by tying them together with another piece of wire. Once you have the star in place, tie the jute at the top with a loop of one inch. You can then add a string or other embellishments.
Build a rustic star out of twigs
Make a rustic star with twigs! Using five twig pieces, cut them to the same length. The pieces should be about the same diameter as the main frame. You can trim them if necessary. Lay out two of the pieces in a “V,” and then glue them together at the “V” intersection. Attach the remaining three pieces to the “A” with the middle crossbar. Add some extra glue to the overlapped ends.
Gather sticks that are at least 10 inches in diameter. Select twigs that are even, straight, and of similar width and color. Next, cut the sticks into sections of equal length. The best starting point for this is ten to twelve sticks. You may need more. Continue this process until you’ve achieved the desired star shape. Once you’ve completed this step, wrap twine or wire around the ends of the sticks to make them look more festive.
Build a rustic star out of denim
To make a rustic star, you can use denim fabric. First, cut a slender piece of fabric and fold it in half. Press the two pieces together and mark the outline of the star with a marking pencil. Sew the fabric along the trace lines. When it’s finished, backstitch the fabric closed. It will take about an hour to make a star. You can make it larger by using different-sized pieces of denim fabric.
Now, you can begin sewing. Start by sewing the two outer corners of the star together, with the points of the star pointing outward. Make sure to stitch the outer edges of the star with a 5mm seam. Sew the star open at one of its points, leaving the other side open for stuffing. Once the star is closed, turn it right side out through the gap. Stuff it with fiberfill and add a star button if desired.
