One of my favorite things is to wander the aisles of the hardware store, thinking of creative ways to use the various supplies. This vinyl flashing decorative star project from Lowe’s Creative Ideas is a perfect example of that kind of thinking outside of the box. The 3D stars are simply beautiful. I have seen them made from paper before. Using vinyl flashing instead of paper means these little guys are studier, and don’t need to be sealed. You can adorn your outdoor space with them, no problem. According to the tutorial (linked above), you can make 30 of them for $26. White Christmas lights and these stars… an inviting Christmas porch!
