It is the start of the craft fair season and I just love this time of year. I love to see all the great creations and new ideas that come out each year. Primitive decor is starting to be a leading decor in most homes here in Northern Maine.

At one of the booths I came upon these adorable little stars tied together in a row. I new just what I wanted to do with them.

I took them home and went to work. They came painted with no vinyl sayings and had not been antiqued and that was the finished look I wanted. I loved the shape of theses stars as they are thick and have a slightly different shape than most of the primitive stars on the market. They also had a beveled edge that gave them a more 3 dimensional look.

I sanded the edges with a nail file to give it an antiqued or worn look and then added vinyl lettering. Hubby is going to make me some more so that I can give them as Christmas gifts this season to my Family and Friends.

I had just the perfect spot for them. when you first enter my home you see the stairs, so I wanted everyone see see that my home is BLESSED by GOD.

So now every time you first walk in you see my little stars and the blessings of my home.
