In a search for plans on a giant wood barn star I came across instructions on how to make these way cute and fun little stars made out of pop cans. We have also attempted to make a few out of scrap sheet metal.

Welcome to Junkmarket Style and looking forward to more of your posts!


P.S. I like the idea of doing the whole tree up "Coke" style, and sending a pic to the company too! :) Posted: 10:13 am on December 23rd

Junksister writes: I am a big fan of the barn star and have made these pop can stars before. They make a great gift topper. I have also made them out of heavy recycled cardboard and heavy metal(in various sizes). One hint: need to score the cardboard and heavier metal well to avoid crinkles. The cardboard can be covered with paper or fabric to change the look. Some day I will get brave and share a project of my own but until then I enjoy seeing everyone elses work.
