Wooden stars ornaments

I've seen quite a few ornaments made from little wooden sticks and I just love their rustic and natural look. So I thought I'd give it a try :-)

What you need: wooden sticks with different thickness, hot glue (use the clear kind, I had white and it showed a bit on my stars) and jute string.
Start by cutting the wooden sticks to a size you want, I used a small saw on the thicker ones and just snapped the others. I made sure that I had two different lengths for the sticks, that way my star would look better. Hot glue two thick ones and two small ones creating two crosses, hot glue the two crosses together forming a star. Use the jute to cover the part where they are glued together and then dab a little glue to the top of the star and place another piece of jute. Make a loop so that you can hang your stars and cover the glued part with another piece of jute, just circle around it and tie a neat little knot.
Ta daa! You stars are ready :-)

Wishing you a lovely day,
