Christine Weber
December 7, 2005

A handful of wooden stars painted gold or silver and twisted onto stems of wire to make a whimsical and unexpected bouquet for a vase. Finished stars in vase.

 

Materials and Equipment:

Instructions:

  1. Before starting, clear the table and cover it with newspaper or a large garbage bag to avoid getting paint on the table.
  2. Spread the wooden stars out on the table. Pour a small puddle of metallic paint onto the container lid.
  3. Paint one side of all the stars and allow to dry.
  4. Flip the stars over and paint the other side. Allow to dry.
  5. Paint the rim of the stars and allow to dry.
  6. Once all stars have been completely painted, assemble your wire. If your pieces are too long or on a coil, cut them to size with wire cutters.

  8. Drill a hole near the top of each star.
  9. Loop the wire through the hole and curl it over the top of each star (see photo). Use pliers if your wire is heavy and won't bend by hand.
  10. If you don't have a drill, you can use superglue to glue the wire against the back of each star.
  11. Tie a ribbon around the wire "stems" to hold them together.
  12. Closeup of stars.
     

  13. Place your bouquet in a vase and enjoy. No need to water!
