fun & funky star DIY.

 i wrote earlier this week about the reason we need a new star
 for the top of our tree... so i have been on the hunt for a one. 

well as i perused the possibilities at the lobby of hobbies,
i just wasn't lovin any of their tree topping options.

so i got to thinking about making one...
i already had some little wooden dowels and lots o' glitta,
so i picked up metallic silver spray paint and a little
4" foam circle and got after it...
the supplies
i broke down the dowels to different lengths
and pressed them into the foam circle
then i spray painted it (out in the collldd...no pics of that)
 and then a bit of glue & glitter!!
and VOILA! ...he isn't as sparkly in pics as in real life, but you get the idea!
woo hoo for getting the tree done!
and Kody & Heidi solemnly swore that they wouldn't eat it.
(look at those faces...don't they look solemn to you?)
