Recycled paper star garland

Another decoration for the Transition Town Worthing Christmas bash - a star garland made out of recycled wrapping paper.

Take a length of twine and create knotted loops where you want each star to be positioned. Cut out as twice as many paper stars as you want on your garland, one for each star's front and back - there's a great star template at to use. I used wrapping paper, but old wallpaper or craft paper would be equally good.

Cover the reverse of one star in Pritt stick glue, use a glue gun to glue the string onto the star, and then sandwich another star on the top of the first one - you may need a dab more from the glue gun to keep the string in place. Glue gun a button onto the star, and you're done.


  1. I am going to do that! :) xx

  2. Ooh let me know how it turns out - I'm going to try making some out of some Victorian wallpaper samples next.
