Quick Craft and CHEAP too!

So, I noticed Dollar Tree had some large paper stars...normally, I buy mine from IKEA or Pier 1, but I thought, "Only a buck?  Let me try to paint them!"  I really, really love them!  I have three more to make so I can hang them in a group of five.  And to be totally honest...surprisingly, the paper is VERY thick!  Took the paint like a champ!  Sturdier than my fave star from Ikea....OK, so you may like the designs on the ones that come from the other stores, but seriously, just add glitter!  I'm late to the game, but I am discovering that glitter makes EVERYTHING better!

  1. Those are so cool! I'm headed to the Dollar Tree as we speak! Ok, I'm not, but I want to! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I have one of those crazy stars sitting right here, wondering what I could do with it, 'cause it's just not me the way it is.
    Thanks for a great idea!

  3. The stars look fabulous! You did a great job.

  4. I'm impressed! I would not have thought of this - they turned out great. I've not done much glittering either - but agree - what a difference.

  5. I can't believe those were only a buck! I'm gonna have to check out dollar tree soon, these turned out CUTE!

  6. Cute, cost effective and straightforward to make. That ticks all my boxes.

    I would love it if you would link up to my second ever Christmas link party.
