Materials Needed:

  • 5 wooden yardsticks for each completed star
  • 5 1/4" nuts and bolts
  • drill
  • 1/4" drill bit
  • can of spray paint
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue sticks
  • twigs or sticks, for embellishment
  • 10-foot strand of white string lights (per star)
  • picture frame nails and hammer (or adhesive wall hooks)
  • safety goggles
  • dust mask
  • drop cloth

Lay Out Yardsticks

On a flat, level surface, overlap five yardsticks onto one another in the shape of a star. Tip: If yardsticks are too large for the space intended for decoration, consider using wooden rulers instead. For a varied look, consider mixing yardsticks and rulers.

Add Holes in Corners

Use drill and 1/4-inch drill bit to add holes into all five corners of star.

Fasten Yardsticks Together

Add nuts and bolts to all five drilled holes, then tighten with screwdriver.
