Star Struck

My friend Jen sent me this link to the cutest idea for Halloween. And because we can't rest when we get a creative itch, we spent Saturday afternoon at Archivers picking out cute Halloween paper, metal and wooden stars at our local discount store, black pigment ink, sandpaper and a big 'ole jar of Mod Podge.

They turned out so cute that I made a set for my Halloween tree (more on that later), a big one for my front door, and a set for the ladies I visit teach.

Let Autumn begin!

You didn't make me a set? :(
But thanks for sharing such a fun idea. :) They are beautiful papers. I LOVE Archivers but mine is like at least 45 minutes away:(

Looks like I am moody today.

Like I need another reason to buy stars! Super cute idea! And to think I ALMOST gave away my bottle of mod podge :)

Heather said...

These are SO cute! I'm impressed! Where did you get the stars? Will you be my visiting teacher? J/K!

Wonderful stars! I CAN'T WAIT to see the tree finale! I bet it's to die for! How long did it take you to make so many? Are you a coffee drinker? If it was me making them I'd bank on at least 3 pots to get through!!! ;) he, he, he! Hey, thanks for your super sweet comment the other day. Gosh you made my heart smile that day. I needed that. Thank you hun! Happy Monday to you~ Les

very cute and very festive--(and it so fits in with your star obsession!)

Jenn said...

LOVE them! They turned out wonderful.

Kristi said...

Love, love, love these!!! Such a fun project! I might have to be a copycat, since I have a sad little star just sitting here in my office waiting for someone to do something to it!

Lacey said...

Adorable! I think I need to start getting crafty again.

I love the Halloween stars. Such cute papers. Somehow your projects always turn out way cuter that the inspiration projects, too.
You must have one clever mom. . .

So cute! You know what a star fetish I have. I am going to make these with my girls. Thanks for the fun idea!

Albanie said...

They are so beautiful! I wish I could do things like that and get craft itches!

Nicole said...

Your stars are darling, that is the funnest idea. You are so sweet to think of me with the rolling pins. I think I'd better pass though, I just got a lecture from my hubby last night about not buying things we don't need, when were in the negative. He's right, even though it's no fun :) Thankyou so much for thinking of me though, you are such a sweetheart.

Laurel MacD said...

These are so cute!!! I want to make one but I couldn't find the stars at any of the craft stores here. You lived in Great falls, any ideas of where I could find them? Thanks!
