This craft idea is really cool. It's all made of a cardboard star that you can get at your local craft store, a hot glue gun, a 10 inch piece of wire and an old sweater. I guess it's my Scandinavian upbringing, but I get such a warm cosy winter feeling from old wool sweaters.

  1. Cut a piece of the sweater that is slightly larger then the star.
  2. Glue the sweater piece to the front of the star using a hot glue gun, make sure to get the fabric into all cracks.
  3. Cut the fabric between the pointy parts of the star and hot glue the extra fabric on the back.
  4. Hot glue the wire to the back of the star.
  5. Ready to use.
