Crafting OCD

I stayed in last night.  I woke up with a cold and subsequently found myself walking to the subway in freezing temperatures and through huge gusts of wind.  I thought it best to stay in.

Jon and I are planning on making a lot of things for our wedding.  I liked the idea of making some sort of garland but I wanted something different.  I had been meaning to try this tutorial for making little paper stars, thinking that it would make a cute garland.  After watching two documentaries and futzing with many little strips of paper this is what I came up with.  It didn't take very long and I like how it turned out.  I don't know what we'll be using it for but at least I have something to do with myself when the nights turn too cold to venture out.


  1. I love these so much! Just found your blog via Craftzine and I'm really enjoying reading it! Much love sweetie xx

  2. How did you get the yarn through the stars? I love this idea.

    1. I used an embroidery needle - it's thicker than your standard needle and is sharp enough to poke through the star. The stars stay in place because the thread/string/yarn (whatever you decide to use) is thick enough to hold them where you'd like them. If that's not working for you I would recommend making a knot on either side of the star to keep it in place. Hope this helps!
