Make it Monday: Paint stick burlap star

You may recall when I made the folk art-inspired flag from paint sticks this summer. My folk art flag was beginning to fall apart and it had passed its phase of being useful…so I decided to repurpose it.

I started by taking the flag apart. See the paint? I didn’t bother taking the paint off since the sticks would be covered with burlap.

I laid it out in a star pattern and hot glued it together.

Then I began wrapping the star in wide burlap ribbon, taking the time to glue it at each pass. It took a long time and lots of ribbon, but when I finished, I had this:

I’m planning to hang it up and hang a wreath in the center of it. Isn’t it cute?

What crafts have you done lately?
