Hey there Sweet Friends, I’m all into holiday mode and enjoying every moment of it.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la
‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la!
December has been full of fun Christmas decorating and DIY’s. The Tablescape Blog Hop happened at the beginning of December and I showed off my “Nutcracker Christmas Table Decor!”
But with that being said, I have a question for you all? Do you ever eat a piece of pumpkin pie without wipe cream?
“Of course not!” I hear you saying.
Then, I ask, “Why would you decorate your table and not your chairs?”
Every chair needs to be decorated, especially on special occasions and when the table is all decked out. It’s kinda like pie ala mode. You can’t have pie without ice cream, right?
In today’s post I’m going to show you how I created these Christmas Greenery Star’s for the back of my dining room chairs. Of course, the stars can be used in many places and adorned with many things.
At the beginning of December I showed you how I decorated my Front Door, Front Door Holiday Decor and Five things Needed to Decorate the Front Door.
Then, I joined a bunch of friendly bloggers on a Christmas Tablescape Blog Hop and showed off my Nutcracker Christmas Table Decor. I received so many comments on how my nutcracker story brought back memories for many and my Christmas Stars reminded them of the Star of David.
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la la la, la la la la,
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la, la la la la
The stars were such a hit, I thought I’d take a moment to show you how I created the Christmas Greenery Star’s for the back of my chairs.
Just like in previous projects, like the “Faux Fur Ribbon Embroidery Hoop Christmas Ornaments,” I say, use what you have.
Materials for Christmas Greenery Stars:
- Garland or Greenery Sticks
2. Sheet Music Paper
Instructions for Christmas Greenery Stars:
Step one: If you can’t find greenery sticks at the craft store, just take a large piece of garland and cut it into pieces. I used six pieces for each star. Each piece was one foot long. If you are making four stars you need 24 pieces of 1 foot long greenery.
Step two: Twist the end of two pieces of garland together to get started.
Step three: Take your third piece of garland and create the first triangle of your star.
Step four: Intertwine each triangle together so they hold together better.
Step five: Once the triangle is complete, use ribbon to accent the Christmas Greenery Star.
Step six: use the ribbon to attach the star to the chair and tie it into a beautiful bow.
Step seven: Adorn your Christmas Greenery Star with whatever your’d like. Music sheets were appropriate for my table cape theme. Roll each up and hold it together with twine. The music sheets accented the Christmas Greenery Star.
Christmas Greenery Stars add a lovely touch to the back of chairs, a wall or a door. The star can be adorned with whatever theme you are after, ribbon, bells, holly, etc. Have fun and make the Christmas Greenery Star match your own home decor. The possibilities are endless.
Just remember, pumpkin pie needs wipe cream, just like your table chairs need decorations.
See the blazing yule before us, Fa la la la la, la la la la,
Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la la la, la la la,
Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la, la la la la, fa la la la la, la la…
Now go out there and create something and have yourself a Very Merry Christmas.
