Wooden Light Up Star

For this project I found this wooden star, 50% off at Michaels (of course!)

I used my Rustoleum Decorative Glaze as a stain, and painted two coats on my star. I waited 24 hours for the glaze to completely soak into the wood so it would be easier to transfer the vinyl later.

I decided to put the words “Merry & Bright” on my star. Originally I wanted to do “May all your days be merry and bright” but there wasn’t a lot of room and I wanted the words to be large enough that they were easy to read. I went onto Cricut Design Space and created the text how I wanted it. I then cut it out onto a gold foil vinyl.

I weeded my vinyl and used my cricut transfer tape to transfer it onto my star at a slight angle.

I then drilled holes into the star so I could poke a set of lights through the wood. I didn’t decide this before hand so I had to work around my vinyl words as some of them were close to the edges. I ended up drilling the holes at each point then drilling more holes in random places until I was happy with it! I loved the finished product and the lights really added a nice touch as they make the words stand out!
