Light Up Christmas Stars

You must have a TON of boxes by now!  Why not pull out a few from the recycling bin and make some light up Christmas stars?!  Cover them in your favorite decorative paper, wrapping paper or even tinfoil.  Use a simple LED light that you can find at almost any dollar store and you've got something magical.  Remember.......recycle, make magic and always Make Your Mark!
 Love the foil papers from DCWV!
Glowing and gorgeous!

Hanging outside on my front porch
Watch how to make them here!
