Merry Christmas CP fans! Can you believe that Christmas is just 20 days away??!! It’s Ashley, and I’m here to share some last-minute holiday décor ideas with you. The Snow & Cocoa collection is perfect for whipping up adorable holiday projects. I decided to use one of the Ruler Studio 9 inch rulers from We R Memory Keepers with some of the ephemera from the Snow & Cocoa collection, to create a Rustic Star décor piece.
I adjusted the ruler to a basic star shape and once I had it the way I wanted it, I added a couple of pop dots to some of the joints to secure the shape. I thought it would be fun to use some of the tags/cards from the Ephemera Pack to create a banner across the star shape. Some of the tags/cards already had a hole in the top, and I used my single hole punch to add holes to the other ones.
I wanted the star décor to have a rustic, hand-made look, so I grabbed some twine that I had on hand to string the tags/cards. I placed the twine through the holes on the tags/cards and then tied it off on each end of the star shape. Then I cut some extra twine and tied two bows and secured them on the ends of the banner.
The tags/cards already had some cute images on them, but I wanted to add a bit more embellishing. I cut 5 star shapes from the Snow & Cocoa 6x6 Paper Pad and machine stitched down the center of each one, before adding them to the Ephemera pieces. I also added a few stickers and some of the cute Gold sequins from the Jar Pockets pack.
This rustic Star would look great hanging in a special spot or you could also stand it on a shelf or your fireplace mantle. It’s also a quick and easy project, that is perfect for adding that hand-made look to your holiday!
