Directions: To make a 5 inch star pattern click on the picture below and copy to Word and right click mouse to select print. Cut out pattern and trace onto craft wood of choice- use a scroll saw to cut the star out. You can also purchase wood cut outs at most craft stores if you do not know how to use a scroll saw.

Once you have your star cut out and sanded, Cut your 4x4 blocks using a chop saw and sand- my blocks measured 4" and 7". Paint stars and blocks and set aside to dry. Once paint is dry, lightly sand blocks and star edges to give a rustic look.

Glue stars with wood glue and let dry for recommended time on the instructions label. When glue is dry- your cute blocks are ready to display!
