  • How to make a Christmas decoration. 5 Point Scrap Wood Star Diy - Step 3
    Step 3

    1. & 2. Trace the pattern 5 times side by side (sharing a side to reduce cuts) and then cut them out with a jigsaw
    3. & 4. Paint each diamond shape with Chalky Finish in a color of your choice
    5. When dry sand the edges and corners
    6. Glue the pieces together to create the star
    *If your pieces don't fit together perfectly you can glue a small scrap of 1/4" thick plywood on the base......Nobody will see it!
    7. Try painting them in different colors
    8. & 9. Stencil over the stars with metallic gold or silver
