Surprising Barn Stars


I am passionate about saving money but still having a beautiful home. Its tricky to keep on a tight budget. I have found many ways to make Barn Stars fun made with scrapbook paper, but this one took me away. I didn't believe it at first sight, but now I am hooked and telling everyone...


These Beautiful Barn Stars are made from...


CEREAL BOXES! Can you believe it?! People who come over to our home always comment on how cute they are, until I turn them around and they look at me like, "WHAT?!" 

They are so simple and ADORABLE, you will want to make them today. I saw this on funkyjunkintereiors.net a few years ago and fell in love with the idea!

 First go to Google and print out a perfect star on paper. Cut it out and grab the largest cereal box you have. Trace the perfect star onto the box and cut out the star. Next fold the star "in half" all five points around, really make the seams deep for a more 3D Barn Star. Then paint, cover, or scrapbook paper away! The options are endless, and definitely cheap!
