Martha has done it again! We are always on the search for something fun and different for the holidays! I dunno about you, but I just love this super fun easy DIY from Martha Stewart! See details below on how to make Evergreen Stars!

Resources

Basswood strips, 1/4 inches by 1/2 inches by 24 inches, by Midwest Basswood, fromcreateforless.com

MATERIALS

  • 10 basswood strips (24 inches each) per 36-inch star
  • Craft knife or mini saw
  • Wood glue
  • Cut greens, such as rosemary, cedar, juniper, and boxwood
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Evergreen Wreath template

STEPS

STEP 1

Cut wood strips in half to create twenty 12-inch strips.

STEP 2

Print the Evergreen Wreath template. Using template as a guide, create the base form: Cross 2 strips together and glue with wood glue. Cross and glue a second pair the same way, then glue the second pair to the first to form a base with 8 spokes. Let dry.

STEP 3

Create the star points: Arrange a pair of strips into a V shape. Glue the star point ends together, then glue the opposite ends to the base tips (alternating the overlapping, as shown).

STEP 4

Continue gluing the wooden strip points around the base until you have 8 star points.

STEP 5

Cut your greenery into pieces the same lengths as the sections of the wooden strips (or use shorter or longer pieces of greenery as necessary).

STEP 6

Hot-glue the cut greenery to the sticks.

Enjoy! xo,Caitlin
