Cardboard Barn Star



 There is something so alluring about these pointy geometric shapes. I can't get enough of them! Every time I see one on pinterest it gets pinned to my Stars Board. Definitely have a long list of star projects to keep me busy!

This newest star addition is a cardboard barn star compliments of Me and My Thrifty Ideas. Visit her page for a simple to follow tutorial.

STAPLING TIP:
Stapling the back of the star tip loosely creates a wide star (pictured unglued in top right corner).
Pulling the star tip all the way over produces a tighter star (pictured glued).


Base coat: Chocolate Bar
Top coat: Metallic Brown

I like how the metallic paint catches the light differently through-out the day.
 

I will  never look at a frozen pizza box the same!
