What I love about window stars are that they really are very simple to make, but the effects can be dazzling! They make great gifts, incredible window displays, and beautiful garlands on a patio (inside or out). I’ve even made a pile of small stars and used them for a mobile above a crib for a friend’s little one!

Once you make just one window star, you’re hooked.
