Playing around with some clothespins that I had aged with “ironed vinegar,” I made a star. You can read about aging wood at this old wood.
Have you ever doodled on a piece of paper and then look at the scribbles and see a really cool drawing of a bug or something?
Well if you have and found yourself cutting out the cute little bug, that’s how I feel about my little clothespin star. I didn’t want to break it apart.
With a bit of wood glue, my little clothespin star won’t break apart! It’s hanging on top of the tree I formed on springs from an old bench that was done for the 12 Days of Christmas Home Tour.
To make one start by making 5 “V” shapes. Then moving them around to form a star.
Here are the basic lines use to make a 5 point star.
I have to find a place for it after Christmas. I sure it will end up on a bookcase or the mantel.

Hi, I saw an identical star at an antique booth in Bardstown, Kentucky. I was looking for a pattern when I came across your site. Pretty cool!
Thank you. I hope I explained it well. My star is still displayed around the house. Right now it’s on the kitchen counter leaning against the backsplash. ~Jeanette
love it!!! So cute!
Thank you Anne. I think this one will be out past Christmas. Merry Christmas, ~Jeanette
