Yesterday, I decided to brighten our windows with some Waldorf Window Stars. The cold and dark winter has really set in here in Utah and these stars really do make things brighter and happier!
I started out with some tissue paper. (Because I couldn't find "kite paper" at any local craft stores. Kite paper would be better as it is more sturdy, but still translucent.) I cut the sheets into perfect squares, then divided them again into 4 squares and then those squares into rectangles. 8 rectangles in all. Then fold them in half and then one end like a paper airplane and the other end not so far. Glue the tips together overlapping each on by half. And voila!
(There is a very good tutorial here. And I really love this lady's whole blog!)
They really brighten up my work space!
I just love how they filter the light!
It makes ME smile every time I see it!
