52 Create – Craftvent Calendar, Day 6

52 Create, my weekly creative output for 2011.  Continuing along with my “Craftvent” calendar for my 2 year old daughter.  Simply put, it’s an advent calendar filled with crafts, all home made, many will be joint projects so she gets some fun of making stuff as well.


Day 6 – Today I made a Finnish Christmas Star.  I got the idea here, but used an old toy catalogue instead of fancy paper (cause that’s what I had).  While it looks complicated, it’s actually pretty simple once you get going.  I think this could be really nice made out of contrasting wood veneers (maple/walnut, ash/mahogany, etc.) and would definitely last longer.  This one is now hanging in our apartment as it’s far too fragile for a little 2 year old’s hands…
