Christmas star for Mitform Castings


Every year after Christmas I go to the stores to buy the bargains to alter for next Christmas!  I picked up this cardboard marquee star for 50c!  

It came with the lights and battery pack
I painted the star to look rusty
Then added brown alcohol ink to the plastic bulb covers

I placed the Mitform Castings stars and glued them down.
Then I added the turquoise paint to make it look like verdigris

I popped the lights
I cut a back cover to hide the wires and hold everything in place
I folded up the edges so it fit like a box lid
I glued 4 of the 5 points so I can access the switch to turn the lights on and off
and... finished with adding some orange paint to the bulbs as they were still too bright.
These are the links to all the Christmas stars:
