The dollar stores are really outdoing themselves lately with their Christmas selections. I have found so many great finds there to either add to my Christmas décor OR give a bit of a makeover then add it to my Christmas decorations.
I found this little wire star at the Dollar General last night and since it was just $1 I snagged it up to take it home and give it a little makeover. Frugal living just runs through my veins. If you like this budget friendly Christmas DIY you will probably love these DIY TWIG STARS that basically costs $0 to make.

I was originally going to wrap the wire star form in twine but that turned out hideous lol! It was bulky and just plain ugly. So I thought instead to remove the middle pieces and then wrap it and it turned out so simple but perfect for my Christmas decorations.
DOLLAR STORE STAR MAKEOVER
Here’s what you’ll need
DISCLOSURE: not responsible for any damages caused. Please craft at your own risk 🙂
1. REMOVE THE MIDDLE WIRE
This was actually harder than I thought it would be. I had to try and cut it with all my might then bend it away in pieces.
2. WRAP THE STAR
Then I cut a long piece of twine and just wrapped and wrapped and wrapped till I got back to the starting point. Around the corners of the wire star I added hot glue to reinforce the frame then wrapped it in twine.
When I got to the very end I secured it in place with hot glue.
3. REMOVE THE FRZZIES
My star had a ton of frizz to it from wrapping and wrapping. So I used my lighter to remove those. I just lightly waved my lighter over the areas that I wanted the frizz gone and was sure to blow as soon as it touched the star so it wouldn’t catch fire.
That’s it! Quick and easy dollar store Christmas makeover craft.
