DIY Twine Stars

Make sure you like Homestead and Survival on Facebook to be updated every time we find a tutorial for innovative ways you can become self-sufficient on a budget.


This is a fantastic star art project. You  might think a star on your front door is only good for the holidays, but what if you’re from Texas?  Then a star on your door would be appropriate 365 days of the year.

This twine star is really a little piece of art.  Ours turned out as nice as the one in the instructions.  It starts out with wooden shims you can get at Home Depot or Lowes or just about any big box hardware store and a package of a dozen or so of them is well under $2.00.  So you only need the shims – or scraps of thin wood would work as well – some glue, the twine, and a little patience.  You’ll have a cool twine star in under 30 minutes – not counting the drying time for the glue, of course.

We prefer the natural look of the twine, but you can also spray paint them. A variation of the starts would also work well for the Fourth of July.
