I’ve loved star shapes for as long as I can remember. If you go check my blog out, you’ll see a couple of different star projects (mostly jewelry and hair pieces). I also hoard (and yes, I mean HOARD) star shapes – plastic glow in the dark stars, wooden stars, glass stars, metal stars – you name it, I most likely will have it, and if not, I’ll be compelled to get it. Same thing happened when I saw these stars – they’re so pretty and with dimensional details to boot. I wondered what I was going to make with them, but it seemed apt to make these really easy-to-assemble DIY Christmas gift earrings – looks festive enough to wear throughout the holiday season, no?

Step 1. Get your stars and pick out what size you want to use. For the pair I have made, I used two of the second-to-the-smallest ones.
Step 2. Use your metal puncher to punch the top hole (one of the star tips) and a hole directly opposite that top hole as well. Alternatively, you can drill these holes with a really small bit, but it’s much easier to use the metal puncher.
Step 8. Optional – If you’re going to give these out as stocking stuffers, a small DIY Christmas gift for friends or whatever, you may want to download these earring tags I’ve made. They come in grey, red and navy blue and they’re about 3″ x 4.5″ in size. You can also use these tags as mini Christmas cards! Download them here.
