We’re getting closer to Christmas which means my crafting is coming to a halt as I prepare to send out Christmas cards, attend programs and neighborhood gatherings, etc. Here’s my final craft for this holiday season: A 3 1/2 foot star that sits atop the entertainment center. This was the fastest and cheapest project out of all the projects this week. $4.50 and thirty minutes and that includes staining.
I bought the cheapest 1×2 wood that Home Depot sells. Less than $2 a piece. I cut 5 identical pieces and laid them out on the driveway to form the star, no fancy angles, just 90 degree cuts. Once I had it lined up, I nailed (with my nail gun but a hammer would be equally as easy).
Due to the nature of semi-thick pieces sitting on top of each other, the last piece that I nailed wouldn’t lay totally flat. So I used a scrap piece to shim it so I could nail it flat.
Within 5 minutes I had the whole thing stained and my little sidekick never left my side!
Most the projects I showcased this week all reside in the entertainment center (that was nonexistent last year) – it took a lot to get it holiday ready!

Very cute! I really like the stain you used for it.
What a great simple, pretty project! The dark stain is lovely.
Loved all the Christmasy crafts!
