Super Simple DIY Rustic Barn Wood Star Tutorial / Makes A Perfect Christmas Tree Topper
It's written in the stars.
Start with 5 strips of wood all cut to the same length. Shown in Step 1. Mine are 14" long x roughly 1 1/4" wide. Start with 2 strips and overlap them as shown in Step 2.
I pre-drilled my holes for the screws so that the wood wouldn't split. I then fastened these 2 pieces together with a screw. Shown above in Steps 3 and 4.
Step 5 Add another strip of wood as shown and fasten it with a screw.
Step 6 Add another strip of wood as shown and fasten with a screw. Basically just working on the star shape.
Step 6 Add the last piece and fasten to the top right point.
You may need a longer screw to fasten this last piece. There will be a slight gap. As shown below. Do not overtighten.
Lastly, If you have raw edges that were cut, you can touch them up with stain. I put my star on top of my Christmas tree. Follow me on IG @simplyminedesigns or on my blog www.simplyminedesigns.blog
