Last month I went to a Etsy Handmade Holiday event at West Elm. I kept admiring West Elm’s “snowflake” mobiles made out of branches, repurposed wood, and rope. I decided to make my own mini version with toothpicks, string, and hot glue.
To make a star you’ll need 4 toothpicks. Make two crosses with a dab of hot glue and then glue them together.
Repeat as many times as desired.
To glue on the string, dab glue in the middle and ends. Then press the string to the center toothpick.
Hand individually or on a string to make a garland. You could even paint the toothpicks or add glitter (perhaps that will be next year’s project!).
