Christmas crafting with Boråstapeter

For the third Sunday in Advent, Malin makes some wallpaper Christmas stars. Beautiful for hanging on the tree or in a window – or why not send one as a Christmas greeting to someone you like?

Christmas stars

You will need: Wallpaper, ruler, tape, glue/glue gun, string, tweezers and a ring

  1. Cut out strips measuring 20 cm long by 1 cm wide. If you want bigger stars, make the strips slightly longer. Cut lengthways with the roll of the wallpaper to give the strips a nice curve.
  2. Take a strip and place one end in the tweezers. Hold it tightly in place while you roll the rest of the strip around the tweezers.
  3. Place the rolled-up strip inside a keyring, wedding ring or similar. This will ensure that all the shapes are uniform in size. Let the strip unroll inside the ring, then take a piece of tape (or glue) and secure its ends so that it retains its shape once removed from the ring.
  4. Squeeze the paper ring at one or both ends, or leave it round.
  5. Create your star by arranging several of your paper rings together. It’s also nice to make a smaller, tighter ring and use it as the centre.
  6. You can put the stars together in different ways – do whatever you like. You can make big or small stars. Once you’ve put together a star that you’re happy with, stick it together with glue or a glue gun, if you have one.
  7. Attach a string to one of the outer rings and hang it on the tree or in a window, or pop it in an envelope and send it to a family member or friend you miss.

PS: To make bigger rings, cut slightly longer strips and use a bigger ring – this will also give you bigger stars.
