This was a New Years decoration but could be used for anything with any shape. Fun and versatile idea.
What we used:
Star cutouts from a poster board (could use any shape)
What we did:
After cutting out a TON of stars, I divided them amongst the boys and set them to work with some paint. We got some great looking stars. Some were messy, some were neat, some were just weird...but that's ok. After they were dry I used a star shape hole punch and punched holes in the top and bottom of every star. I tied 3-4 stars together with ribbon and hung curly pieces of ribbon from them. Then I hung them randomly around the house. It's February, they are still up =)
This is one of them-
