The strangest thing happened to me the other day…
No, I wasn’t visited by aliens
It was weirder than that.
I couldn’t get my act together.
I didn’t want to sew.
I didn’t want to crochet
I really didn’t want to write a blog post.
No, I wanted to sit by the window,
twiddle my thumbs.
Which I did until I realised that my
could be put to better use.
I could make some Danish Paper Stars.
I would still be sitting by the window,
enjoying the bird song,
the dogs rustling in the leaves
the kid pretending to be a fire engine.
I would be brushing up on some very dusty skills.
Danish Paper Stars
also known as Froebel, Swedish & German stars
traditionally made at Christmas.
They are either made using paper strips, or ribbon.
I used a magazine cover.
(It was the closet thing to hand)
how easy these stars are to make.
They look complicated with their
double sticky pokey up things
but really they are child’s play.
Fancy having a go?
