Hurricane Sandy is on it's way to New York. I figure I better get some posts in before we lose power. With Hurricane Irene in 2011, we went 6 days without power. Ack! Fingers crossed, it won't be as bad as they are predicting. Yesterday, I ran a bunch of errands to prep for the storm and popped into Ikea. I picked up this four-pack of little metal stars.
So petite that three easily fit into this vintage Jello mold. I created the little banners using this font from Dafont.com. Have you been there? They have the coolest fonts. Ever!
I just saved this carnival-inspired one to my computer and printed out "noel," "peace" and "joy." I cut the paper into banners, distressed them a bit and used Glue Dots to place them on the front of each star.
A really quick and cheap project. The set of 4 was $3.99 at Ikea. The paper, ink and font were free. And now I have some cute little holiday stars for my Xmas tree or I might just keep them in the Jello mold.
To everyone else in the path of Sandy, please be safe!
