Who doesn't love tinsel? Here's another way to use it: Twist wired tinsel (available at specialty-craft stores) into six-pointed stars.

Cut three pieces of tinsel, two of equal length and one a little longer.
Twist equal pieces together at centers, and wrap third piece onto the two twisted pieces, forming a star.
Bend end of longer piece into a hook, and attach the star from the ribbon on a gift or hang as an ornament on a tree.
