What You'll Need

  • 9"×12" felt sheets: two sheets of two colors 
  • Spray adhesive
  • Fabric stiffener
  • Glitter, same color as felt
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Wire

Step 1: Prepare the Felt

Use spray adhesive to sandwich one sheet of each color together, creating four two-color, double-thick sheets. Cut into twelve ¾"×12" strips. Saturate both sides with fabric stiffener; let dry. Lightly spray one side with adhesive and sprinkle on glitter; let dry.

Step 2: Weave the Star

Lay three strips vertically; weave three strips through center horizontally, forming a cross. Hot-glue spots where woven strips overlap. Glue together tips of outside strips of adjacent sides to make loops. Repeat with remaining six strips.

Step 3: Finish and Hang

Sandwich units together so strips of one align with loops of the other. Glue single strips to tops of loops they sit inside. Trim ends of strips into points. Add wire to back for hanging.
