This weekend was spend decorating inside and outside for Christmas. I did the inside, Hubby did the outside. And we’re done! Woohoo! I needed something for the front door, so in the mist of putting up the tree and decorating the rest of the house, I had an idea for a door ornament/wreath.
I had wood shims left over from who knows what. (Sometimes I wonder why I have some of the things I have!) I tried for a while to make the “perfect” shaped star, but it kept coming out lop-sided! Finally it dawned on me that the sides all need to be the same angle. So after I glued the first two V-shaped pieces together, I stacked the next two shims on top of that “V” to get the exact same shape/angle. When I had five “V” shapes that were exactly the same, then I glued them all together. (I hope that made sense.) Use wood glue. Hot glue does not hold it together well.
