Himmeli Patriotic Stars Wreath or Garland!
First you'll need to make some stars
You'll need wire and coffee stirrer straws.
I cut some in half 3.5 inches...and others at 2 inches.
(Check out this lamp for another great Himmeli project!)
Put a long straw with 2 small to make an acute triangle.
Then add 2 short straws to the other side...
and run the wire back through the long center straw.
Continue that process until you have 5 long straws
connected with Y shaped sections of 3 short straws.
Twist off the excess wire and tuck it inside a straw.
It looks great...but not really geometric.
Pinch up the center straws...
bend in the Y cross sections...
super easy to mold because of the wires.
Until it's a gorgeous dimensional 5 point star!
hang as a garland...use as ornaments...add to a patriotic wood sign...
Adds the perfect bit of dimension!
