I completed my latest project last night - a Holiday Banner. I had picked up these cardboard stars at Michaels in the dollar section about 6 months ago. I wasn't sure what they would become until this weekend. If you don't happen to have these sitting in your closet, you could also trace them out of thick card stock, reuse some old cardboard or even use the sides of a cereal box.
I picked up these wonderful books at Goodwill last week for $3.99 each. They are old books filled with beautifully aged sheet music.
I placed my star on the page and began tracing. Did you notice the title of the song? In hindsight I should have kept this page in tack for another project since only I - and of course now you - know that the page was originally the Christmas Song.
After all my stars were cut out, I distressed the edges.
I then turned to my computer, printed out each letter, cut them out and distressed these as well.
Then I cut out a gold circle for each star out of some paper I had on-hand. To add a little glitz, I turned to my Mod Podge and Martha Stewart glitter. I must say, I love how glitter looks, but man I think I still have it in my eyebrows.
It was now time to assemble. I glued...
I added some hanging jewels and rhinestones...
hot glued each letter to some ribbon, and...BELIEVE.
I linked this project up to DIY Day over at A Soft Place to Land and Get Your Craft On at Today's Creative Blog. Be sure to check them both out, I was thrilled to see all of the great ideas!
Just linked this project up to Saturday Nite Special over at Funky Junk Interiors. This party is always full of some many fabulous projects and tons of inspiration.
