That’s right. I’m posting Christmas ideas in July. And why not? It’s only six months away!
Idea #1: Pencil Eraser Star Stamper
#1. Martha Stewart uses an exacto knife to create this stamper out of a pencil earser. Great for wrapping paper and ribbon!
Idea #2: Yarn Stars
#2. Artist Marinda Stewart took Classic Elite yarn (a blend of silk and mohair) to make these wrapped stars- you can try foam core or wood but cookie cutters with no handles are the easiest to wrap. The knit-textured vase by Alyssa Ettinger.
Idea #3: Door With Star
#3. A star decorates the bottom portion of a door using upholstery tacks available at sewing supply stores. Leave it up all year!
Idea #4: Chalk Stars
#4. Here holiday messages in words and stars are written on a wall of chalkboard paint.
Idea #5: Wooden Star Wreath
#5. Painted wooden star can be a substitute for a traditional green wreath. This one by Accents de Ville.
Idea #6: Windowbox Of Stars
Idea #7: Canopy of Stars
#7. Sleep beneath the stars! Matthew Mead hangs greens and star ornaments from a wooden canopy bed.
