What do you think these little star ornaments are made out of?
The shaker lid of a spice jar!! When we were making applesauce cinnamon ornaments, I noticed the star pattern on the shaker lid. I immediately checked the lids of the various spices in my cupboard (I've also checked out a few brands in the store ). The star shaped pattern in the shaker lid is common if not universal among spice shakers.
On the first lids we decorated, we didn't line the lids until after we threaded the star. Unfortunately, when we glued the back on we realized that the lids were more translucent than I first thought.
See the threads on the back? Aren't the blue and green colors of this star pretty? C made this one.
I lined subsequent stars with glittery craft foam then backed them with felt.
I will be sharing this at:
