The star was made from some trim strips. I couldn't find any thin strips of wood in the garage, but I did have some plastic lattice trim. I sanded it down and wiped on some stain. I hot glued the strips into a star shape and wrapped some twine around the joints. Easy-peasy rustic star.
To balance things out I made a simple and rustic tree.
Since I like a little chic with my shabby, I brought in some sparkle with mercury glass and twinkle lights.
