Quilting can conjure up images of fussy bedrooms in meemaw's house. It can also evoke images of total fun and funkiness. Take for example this Indigo Star Quilt from Alabama Chanin. It has the traditional Star Quilt assembly, but
Making these beautiful 3D stars is as easy as drawing a straight line and cutting it. (Don't worry, you can use a straight edge). They can be easily transformed into ornaments, placecards, or simply adorn your flat surfaces 'round the holidays.
- Scrap paper
- Foam board (Don't use polystyrene, it's bad for the environment)
- Utility or craft knife

These would look killer in photos with holiday lights!
Easy. fun. and completely DIYable with this tutorial from DIYPhotography!
