I’m back with more Christmas holiday crafting! I love this time of year, being able to bring the joy of the holiday season into my crafts! When I find items I can turn into something new and exciting I can’t wait to get them home and get to work on them. I could definitely sit in my craft room for hours getting lost in creating beautiful pieces! I hope you enjoy this DIY Christmas Star Shelf Sitter, and give one a try too!
Star Shelf Sitter – Thrift Store
Greenery Stems – Hobby Lobby
Burgundy and Antique White Paint
Antique Wax / Berry Garland
Red & White Ticking Fabric
Scrapbook Paper – Hobby Lobby
First, I completely disassembled the star shelf sitter I found at the Thrift Store.
Second, I painted the stars with the burgundy paint and the rods and the base with the antique white paint.
Third, I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the round base of the shelf sitter using Mod Podge to glue it down.
Fourth, I lightly sanded the excess scrapbook paper off and made the holes through the scrapbook paper lining up with the holes in the base.
Fifth, I used a small amount of wood glue in each hole and reinserted the rods into each of them.
Sixth, I lightly sanded the rods and along all of the edges of the stars.
Seventh, I used the Antique Wax around the base, up the rods and around the edges of the stars.
Eighth, I made circles with the greenery stems and then hot glued one to each of the stars. I then made bows with the red and white ticking fabric, gluing them to the greenery stems with hot glue after.
Finally, I used hot glue to attach the berry garland around each rod.
Here is the final result of the DIY Christmas Star Shelf Sitter, how do you think it turned out? I love turning Thrift Store finds into something brand new and completely mine! There is nothing better than sitting back and admiring the craft that came to life from my thoughts! I’m hoping you could find something similar to this and can make one for yourselves too! Merry Christmas!
