Soda Can Tin Stars

Party preparation has begun! I’ve spent all day today cleaning and rearranging. My kittens haven’t enjoyed it as much as I have. They don’t like the vacuum. I don’t want to post too many details about my party plan so that my guests will be surprised. But I did want to share these because they are so darn cute. My party theme colors are black, white and silver. These stars made out of a soda can are the perfect silver accent. I got this idea from a post on craft during the holiday. These little stars were surprisingly very easy to make. I simply cut off the top and bottom of my can with tin snips. (I drink a lot of diet coke, so I had plenty of materials to work with.) After my can could lay flat, I traced a star shape in permanent maker. I could fit two stars on one can and the star cut out is easy straight lines. After my shapes were cut out, I used a ruler to fold at each point. Be careful because the points are sharp. These will be the perfect decoration on my table.

These are great -- These would also be great Christmas ornaments!
I hope this is for a celebration party -- I have my champagne in the fridge and my youngest is coming over with my swim group.

I love stuff like this made from materials that we usually overlook! How long did they take you?
