Holiday Decorating: The Star
The star is a versatile decorating motif that goes well with holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, parties or for the mere seeing a star in your personal environment.
Recently reading the article about the uphlosterer, Laure Pelé on Sharon Santoni's blog, My French Country Life, I wide eye on a wooden five point three dimensional star in the third photograph by author, Sebastion Siraudeau, from his book, New Vintage French Interiors.
A quest! I search the Internet for how to make such a beautiful star. From those search results I change keywords that bring me to a website with instructions for how to make a paper five point 3D star. The easiest are on the blog, Craft Thyme. The folding instructions are done with text and photographs. I made a star on the first try.
What about wood? My geometry-Not brain sees angles. Shiver me ruler! A good brain exercise...I can make a paper model to measure the angles in the sizes I want for the materials I have on hand, scraps and old picture frames. This is going to take serious aroma therapy dealing with the math. Now where’s my compass?
Blogging is wonderful and so are those stars!
