Star Garland

    Posted by  ·  June 30, 2009

    I plan to hang these festive stars over our tables on Saturday.

    If you have a Cricut use the Stand Up and Salute Cartridge for the open star cut to 7 1/2 inches. For the smaller blue star hanging at the bottom I used the Plantin Cartridge for the star cut at 4inches. The larger red star was another Plantin star cut at 7 1/2 inches

    Don’t have a Cricut–no worries print out these stars for a template!

    I left a long tail of thread (so I would have something to hang it with) and began sewing the stars together with the sewing machine with a long stitch length.

    For the three dimensional star cut two large stars with the Plantin Cartridge cut at 7 1/2″.  On one star cut a slit from the top to the middle and on the second star cut a slit from the bottom to the middle.

    star Slip the two stars together. I used just a touch of hot glue at the top and the bottom of the star to fasten the two stars together and keep them open and in place.

    Here is a template.

      These are very cute! They look easy to make too, which is good! Cricuts have got to be the best invention ever! I am going to have to try these, thanks for posting!

      What a great idea! I was stressing about making a fabric one but now I will do this. I ran out of time because Canada Day is also coming up and I had to make a banner for my husband. Thanks!
