I found a pile of old rulers in the toss pile in the staff room at school, so I grabbed a handful of them!
I drilled holes 1 inch from each end, wired them together and added a bead.
With a scrap denim bow and our room number, this became a sort of wreath for our classroom door, welcoming all who enter!

A few old rulers, 5 beads, a little wire, and a star is born!
