4th of July Stars

These stars are wonderful for decorating your garden for Independence Day!

We took a heavy duty paper plate and cut out a star.

Then you decorate the star with toothpicks. As you can see we broke the ends of lots of the toothpicks to get the lengths we wanted.

After the glue dried, we painted the stars. We used spray paint (and you can tell I didn’t get the hang of it right away!).  Then we used duct tape to tape a long meat skewer on the back.  ED spent a long time deciding exactly where the stars should be on display and made me take picture after picture (I spared you and limited it to three!).

Have a wonderful 4th of July!
