DIY MUSIC SHEET STARS!

Craft: Music Sheet Stars

I was looking through the new Pottery Barn (PB) catalog when I stumbled upon something that looked very familiar, paper stars. And they weren't just any paper stars but over sized lucky stars. Did anyone else catch that? Every year PB comes out with something to fill their vases and apothecary jars. This year one of the fillers was over-sized lucky stars.

Some of you might remember I wrote a tutorial for basic lucky stars long ago, here. So, I'm resurrecting the tutorial along with an explanation on how to make these music sheet stars. For the most part the process is the same but there are a few adjustments.

Supplies:
Music sheets - search online to find holiday carols and print on light brown paper. Position your sheet music so it's formatted in landscape.
Paper trimmer or scissors
Double stick tape

Basic Star Instructions


Instructions For Large Stars

1. Cut music sheets into (2" x 11") strips. Make four strips. Tape together to make one long strip.

2. Fold star (instructions above) up to step seven. Using double stick tape, tape end down to star. Finish with step eight. Done

*I recommend not wrapping the paper too tight. The large stars are a little tricky to puff up and might require a couple tries.


Instructions for Small Stars

1. Cut music sheets into (1" x 11") strips. Make two strips. Tape together to make one long strip.

2. Fold star (instructions above) up to step seven. Using double stick tape, tape end down to star. Finish with step eight. Done


Other option - use wrapping paper to make the stars. You will be able to make them just about any size that you want, due to the width and length of the paper.
