Materials and Tools:

2 colors of felt (one for each side of star)
fabric marker
scissors
needle and thread
cotton batting
thick-gauge wire, at least 12 inches long
vintage buttons
ribbon
fabric glue (optional)

Steps:

1. Draw star shape onto two pieces of felt. Cut out both shapes. Put star cutouts back to back and whip-stitch edges together, leaving one point unstitched so batting and wire stand can be added. Tip: These stitches will be covered with ribbon so they need not be neat.

2. Stuff star, making it as full as desired. Coil wire around your fingers to create the wire stand that will attach finished star to tree top. Insert coiled wire in bottom of star.

3. Finish stitching edges of star together. Cover stitched edges with ribbon, attaching it either with fabric glue or by sewing it on by hand.

4. Embellish star by sewing (or gluing) on vintage buttons.
