DIY Wall Art - Yardstick Star
I created this project for Christmas originally, but I think it is perfect for year round.¬† Of course, you will have to excuse that all of the pictures are from Christmas time - but you get the idea!
A DIY star made from yardsticks - an easy and quick DIY wall art project.
- Start with 5 yardsticks.¬† I picked mine up at a True Value store and just hit them with some of Miss Mustard Seed‚Äôs antiquing wax to make them look older.¬† This would also work great with vintage yardsticks.
- Lay them out in a star pattern
- Use a drill to make a small hole at each joint.
- Attach each ‚Äúpoint‚Äù with a small bolt and nut.¬† Keep it loose until they are all attached.¬† Then form your desired star shape and tighten the bolts to hold in place.
I wired on a cluster of holly and tied on a ribbon for Christmas - but have now taken it off for year round use.
Just remove the holly and ribbon and it is ready for year round decorating.
It is perfect on a gallery wall‚Ä¶
And of course, outside‚Ä¶
