Upcycling Wrapping paper - A Holiday Activity to Share

One of my fondest childhood memories is crafting with cousins at Grandma's house. Back in those days there was only one TV, used by adults, so after the presents, meal and dishes were done on Christmas day, we young ones retreated upstairs to "make things."

We did not make these stars, but oh, we would have if we knew about them. :D The idea comes via Janice of Aubrey's Beads in a blog post on Star Ornaments
and here is her how to video

Before you get to the stars, you may want to make the beads from wrapping paper.

Here is one quick method from Threadbanger

What do you think? Are there stars and beads in your today?
