"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
- Les Brown
My five year old daughter, Harper, came into the world with a big personality, impeccable comedic timing, and a very sophisticated, avant garde sense of humor. She is notorious for her wild requests. For her 3rd birthday she requested "a mustache-tiger-fish party" (I'll give you a minute to picture that)
Last year's Christmas list:
1. a candy cane
2. a rainbow
3. a banana
4. a rusty old sock
This year's Christmas list:
1. REAL hot pink roller skates (we bought her "fake ones" that strap over her shoes last Christmas)
2. Short black hair (she is a dirty blond with long, wavy hair)
3. A shooting star
No sweat. Color me inspired...
- paper plate
- painted cardboard scraps, cut into strips
- glue gun (for big kids) or white school glue (for littles)
- cut paper stars
1. Cut out the center of your paper plate.
2. Gather your paper strips. If you have a paper cutter at home it will cut your prep time down by a lot.
3. Start gluing your strips around your paper plate wreath.
4. Fill in your spaces and layer your strips.
5. Add your paper stars. I decided to go with white stars in the center of the wreath.
But you could also scatter your stars and paint them gold:
