Shine Bright: Christmas Star Decorations
Decorating with stars for Christmas is something that has been done for centuries all over the world. They come with different amounts of points and materials but one thing is for sure: they make any Christmas decor festive. Also easy to make, here are some beautiful star DIYs for this year's Christmas decor.
Star Advent CalenderIMAGE: NALLES HOUSE
Advent calenders were always my favorite as a child. They are a fun way to count down the days to Christmas, and there are so many versions all around the world. This tree is simple and modern and lets the numbered felt stars stand out. In addition, your little ones can learn their numbers and how to count. Find out how to make this minimalist, Nordic-inspired star Advent calendar at Nalles House.

A pretty photo in a Pottery Barn catalog inspired this wooden-star Christmas garland which is a primitive yet elegant and timeless approach to decorating for Christmas. This garland will definitely never go out of style and is pretty easy to make if you aren't afraid of using a saw and some wood. Get the instructions and how-to at Hawthorne & Main.

Including stars into my decor always adds that graphic element I crave so much. The colorful Christmas tree received some extra interest with some large, gold, 3-D folded stars made out of empty cereal boxes and some spray paint. Such a cheap, easy, and stylish addition to any Christmas tree. Find out how to make them with a free printable star shape here.
Clay Star GarlandIMAGE: DELIGHTED MOMMA
If you are already baking star shaped cookies for Christmas, then why not use that star shape and some polymer clay to make this cute star garland. It doesn't get much easier than this and can be the perfect little craft to do with your kids. I can picture the garland draped around a Christmas tree, doorway or mantel. Find out how to make your own at the Delighted Momma.
Let's not forget about adding that special touch to your Christmas presents under the tree. Any plain wrapped gift can be transformed into something gorgeous with this foldable star, and you can download the shape here. All you need is some thick paper or card stock, and, in this case, a pretty broach or pin to add to the center. I also love the idea of adding this easy star to the top of your tree or front door.
