    Star Christmas Ornitments Made from 2.5" squares

    Wanted to share these with y'all. I think this would be a great Christmas gift for quilters. These stars are made from 2.5" squares, folded in half to form the points. Then thread them together to form the star and thread a button on and there you have it... This is such a quick and easy handmade gift. Not to mention cute as a button....lol...no pun intended... If any of y'all make some of these, please show them...would love to see them....

    Those are super cute – I think I will make a few for myself!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Very cute! That would be a great project for children, as well.

    That is super cute and easy. Thank you. My very small quilt guild exchange homemade ornaments at our Christmas meeting and this will be perfect.

    Oh my.....so glad you like this.... I am going to post a few more pictures of other things I am making with these.. You can also put these together with glue. Just sew the stitch onto the button and glue the rest. A very easy and cute project.

    Two more pictures of the stars

    Here is a few more pictures of things I am doing with these stars... On the first pictures I showed them with crochet tread. On these pictures I am using a small rope which I like better... But y'all could play around with these and see what y'all come up with.. would love to see pictures.... :-)

    Using heat-n-bond, you could make 2 sided fabric and use a "sparkly" fabric for one side.

    Very cute. Easy & useful & not a lot of time or fabric. What more could you ask for? Great last minute gifts or new ornaments for yourself. Thank you!
