I love decorating my porch and especially around my front door. I wanted something that I can keep up all year long. I like to keep a basic greenery around my door and I knew I wanted to make something with twine. I decided a star with twine would be a great item for all year long. This is a very easy DIY and does not require a lot of supplies.
The supplies you will need are:
1. Wire hangers (you will need 3 for one star)
3. Wire cutters
5. Spray paint (this is optional)
The first thing I did was spray paint my hangers. I want my hangers to match the shade of my twine. This is an optional step.
Once my hangers are dry I then begin to form my star.
Place the first hanger down like this. You will then place the second hanger.
You should have the two points overlapping at top.
I then placed the third hanger like this on top of the previous two.
I am going to cut the hook of the third hanger off right where my finger is pointing to.
Once I cut the hook I will secure the ends together with a piece of twine.
I then took some twine and secured a few of the areas where the hangers overlapped.
Once your star is formed and secured together it is time to wrap your twine.
You will want to tie a knot for your starting point.
You will then just start wrapping in all directions. Make sure to keep cross crossing in all directions.
You will wrap your star according to how much twine you want wrapped around it. My stars are not completely covered.
You can see thru my star here and there. When you get done you will need to take your end piece and tie a knot.
I took the end and brought it up through the wire and knotted it.
I hope you all give this a try. It is a very easy DIY and they look amazing around my front door.
I just love it ❣️
I love stars so this DIY is right up my alley. Love your front porch I need to try and fix up my porch. I have a porch that has all sliders for doors with screens on each. Like being outside if you open them all. It’s warm in winter and cool in summer.I have a lot of stars already on that porch but would like to do something like you have with Garland and Stars. Love love!
Barb this are wonderful. I watched you yesterday, but the instructions on your blog are so helpful. Thank you for your time and inspiration. Today I drove down to Greenville, SC & went to Mighty Dollar. It is huge!!! Picked up a few things to use in my crafting. That store had tons of scrapbooking supplies. Maybe you can take a trip over. Thank you again. Stay safe.
Stars look so great!
I made 2. Love them. Thanks for
Being you. ❤️👏👏
I absolutely love this star. I have never made one but you make things easy to understand and so enjoyable. Your a wonderful spirit. Thank you and God bless you and your beautiful family.
I can’t figure out how to do my star with the Jude wrote on the keeps all of the ends of my hanger and I can’t find the video on how to do it
I found this DYI very difficult as I think many did my twine keep slipping of the hanger but I was not going to quit finally after many try’s and just going with it I finished it I posted it on crafting with the shabby tree and many said it looked like a starfish Lol …. after my frustration it really was a fun craft but a little more difficult than I thought❤️ I just love crafting with the group it puts a little bit of sain into my insane world 🥰
How do I find a craft that you did? I have searched your website and it says beehive not found. Looking through the emails I have seen some but they do not include the directions for making the bed hive. Please help.
The beehive sadly was not made into a blog post. It is however on my Facebook!
Thank you so much for following the shabby tree! Some crafts are harder than others. I am sorry that it took me a little to respond and approve your comment.
Maybe try a little hot glue to get you started 🤷♀️❤
Can you show more pictures of how you decorated using them?
I just love it! Wish I could go to dollar tree .i need greenery .
Simple and perfect..💜
Barb, just finished making 6 stars, I have 2 wrapped in jute and I am spraying them white and putting twinkle light in them and then I will attach them to flay pallets that I painted by myself and my 2 sisters, I have too get the twinkle lights, I will attach them to the flag and post a picture. Hope you are doing well, love seeing the kids on your videos. Your videos keep my spirits lifted especially when I watch in the evening. It does get lonely since my husband passed away. You make us feel like we are part of the Shabby Tree family and that we get to know you. I don’t every feel that you are making goof ups, that is just part of the experience and keeping it real. You do make a difference in people’s lives. I have always made different items, learned how to sew at an early age. Making limes and lemons for a dough bowl and trying to find some lemon payer so that I can put on something. You are a shinning light in your followers eyes and I would dare anyone to say differently. Love being part of The Shabby Tree family.
I made the star you showed with the skewers from the dollar tree. I absolutely love your energy!
Your star looks incredible!!
Beautiful Barb, this has been in my Shabby Tree book a while. I think I’ll attempt it today. Much love from Texas! ❤
