Star Garland

Fly the nation's colors on the Fourth with this jaunty string of stars.

  1. For each ornament, cut a four-pointed star from solid-color card stock and two from patterned origami paper. (Draw your own stars or use our templates.)

  2. Use a glue stick to sandwich the card-stock star between the decorative ones, right sides facing out; stagger the tips to create an eight-pointed star.

  3. Machine-stitch through one axis of a big red star; sew 4 inches beyond its tip, or lift foot and pull out 4 inches of thread, then pick up again at the tip of a blue star. Repeat, alternating between colors.
