Jack's Star

When we put up our tree the other night Jack was very bothered that there was no star to put on top. We had a star when we first got married but it was a hand me down from when I was a little girl and it was on its last leg when we got it. I think it lasted maybe 2 Christmas with us. I've looked every year for a new star, but can't seem to find one that I really like.

Sunday night I told Jack we would load up the car and go to Target to look for a star and if we didn't find one we liked we would make one. They didn't have much of a selection so we headed to the art isle and bought poster board and glitter. When we got home I cut out a star and put glue all over it. Jack spread the glue out with a paintbrush then I let him loose with the glitter. He had a great time and is SO PROUD of the star he made. Any time anyone comes over it's the first thing he shows them. Of course, in my opinion, there isn't a better star in any store for our tree this year!

The prettiest star I have ever seen! You will never be ever to buy one that will mean more than this one.
