Evening Star Christmas Wall Hanging
A beautiful piece of wall art for the holidays. This Evening Star Christmas wall hanging is simple and inexpensive to make. Give it as a gift or display it in your own home this holiday season.
Evening Star Christmas Wall Hanging Materials:
• “Glory to the Newborn King” printable: red or green or blue background
• Paper Trimmer
• Gold Yarn on this project, this was the yarn used: Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Glamour Yarn, Topaz
• Star Template printed on paper
• Glue Gun
• Glue Sticks
• 8×10 Frame
Evening Star Christmas Wall Hanging Directions:
• Print and cut out the Star Template template .
• Place the printed out paper with the star onto a piece of cardboard and trace it with a pencil. Cut out the star. Discard the paper template or save for another project.
• Using yarn, wrap the star. Begin by wrapping yarn a few times around the center to hold it in pace. Affix with hot glue if necessary.
• Begin to cover the points. Wrap around the point a few times, usually overlapping and then affix on the back with hot glue. Continue all the way up to the top of the point. You may need to add more glue as you get closer to the point to get the yarn too stay.
Note: If you wrap too tightly, your yarn may begin to slip off or bend your template. Use a firm wrap but not too firm.
• Repeat to cover all points.
• Begin to cover the middle of the star, wrapping yarn in all directions until it is completely covered. Cut the yarn and affix on the back with hot glue.
• Glue the finished yarn star onto your “Glory to the Newborn King” printable.
• Place the template in your frame. Keep the glass behind the paper template. You are using the glass from the frame as a defacto backer board. You are not using glue to hold the “Glory to the Newborn King” template in place, the frame will do that for you. If you would like glass in front of your frame, you would need to purchase a shadowbox frame.
• Note: If you have an old frame lying about the house that does not have glass in it, you would need backer board and a few dabs of hot glue to hold the “Glory to the Newborn King” template in place.
• Display as desired.
• If you prefer not to hang this, get a small art stand and display on a tea cart, sideboard, fireplace mantel, or end table!
