I came across this great re-purpose idea HERE and decided to give it a try. I made my own giant wooden star using vintage yardsticks and twine.
I LOVE all the different colors and advertisements on these vintage yardsticks!
To assemble the star just simply lay them out in a star shape, hot glue the edges and the places they cross. Then wrap twine around the corners of the star for a little something extra to finish it off.
This is a great inexpensive and fun craft project for year around decorating.
