Twinkle, Twinkle BIG Star

I was thinking up ideas for a topper for my junk tree and decided I needed a star.  I thought I would cut up a couple yardsticks to do it.  Then I thought "Hey, why cut up perfectly good old yardsticks when I could make a REALLY BIG star."  So that's what I did.  It was easy, only took a few minutes.  Maybe people have been doing this since the dawn of time (so I apologize if this is old news), but it seemed revolutionary to me.  Cheap, easy, big impact, and fun!  Now I just have to figure out a different tree topper.

plain ones. But since my red and green paint cans were already out, I gave it the ol' smear and wipe treatment. No
one is the wiser (well, now except all 1200+ of you). Now,
I can sleep soundly tonight. Thanks for your comments.
