Christmas is near and I wanted some nice and simple rustic decoration in the house.
So I made a rustic star wreath ( hope you call it that way)

Cut some stars out of a piece of pallet wood.
Drill some holes in the top.
Put a string in it and glue it with a glue gun.
And before you know you have a nice and simple Christmas decoration.

Good luck

I really like these Houtje, very creative. Thank you so much for sharing, it’s a great idea to make decorations for the collection each year.

I might call them more of a garland than a wreath. But most likely these names are a regional thing anyway :) No matter what you call it, it is a fantastic decoration!

Merry Christmas.

that is nice—good old fashioned Christmas decorations. Hand made – and from recycled material.
AND they are beautiful.

I have a pile of these myself. LOL All the drop from pine boards gets turned into a star and tossed into a box for future use. You can never have too many wooden stars in a box. ;)

Ik vind het ook mooi, ook al is het geen Kerst meer.
