i admit it.
i am a total sucker for post-holiday clearance sales.
my heart really starts beating fast when i see the
70% and 80% off signs go up.
last year, i scored this star at target for 80% off.
(so, it cost around $2.60)
our tree has been without a star for several years,
and i have been on the hunt for one.
i loved the size and shape of this one,
but i wasn't in the market for a white + brightly covered star.
i knew that with a little bit of paint and glitter,
it could be transformed into something better
suited for my holiday decor.
first, i spray painted the star gold,
and then sprayed the entire thing with spray adhesive.
(yay for super 77!)
i sprinkled martha stewart gold glitter on the star,
and then covered the little balls with some gold leaf.
(both left over from other projects.
the spray adhesive was fantastic for making
both of these stick!)
the finished star.
my kids love it.
now our tree finally has a star!
i'll give you a better peek at our tree later in the week.
it's nothing special,
so don't hold your breath.
