From Blah To Ta-Da!

I bought a few of these 18" metal stars at Joann's a couple years ago. They were from one of those seasonal lines that doesn't stick around long and I got them at 75% off... about $1.25 each! How could I not buy what they had left? I started painting one white, but fell asleep half way through. Just kidding :) but I did want to do something more fun with one of them.

{ok... this is actually quite nice, but that doesn't rhyme with ta-da}
I made a wonky-triangle template out of file folder paper. There's only one shape... I just had to flip it for half of the pieces. I arranged some papers out on the floor in a pleasing pattern which I ended up changing completely as I started cutting. I was going for a scrappy quilt look. I quickly discovered that I need more floral paper and I have lots of polka dots! 

Here it is... my new, scrappy star :) I ♥ Mod Podge.

Just for fun, I'm going to try something new and post this over at The Shabby Chic Cottage Transformation Thursday!
