DIY fake driftwood panel star!

Hello Lovelies, 
shall we make some stars?
Some driftwood stars?
You will not need wood or hot glue or screws...
All you need is some cardboard, mod podge, duct tape 
and a wood printed wallpaper.
Yes that`s all.
Shall we begin?;)

Just print out a star shape, or draw them freehand, 
just use photoshop or something.
Like this one.

Than trace the shape on cardboard, 
or draw freehand.
If satisfied, fold in the middle of the jags and cut the lines, 
to get the star in shape.
After that, simple put duct tape on the gaps.
You don`t want a flat, boring cut out star, 
you wan to create a dimensional shape.
(Don`t worry at the end you won`t notice all the crinkles...)
Like this.

If done so, use a big blob of mod podge and slash it on the
 backside of the wallpaper and on the duct taped side of the star.

Here`s the wallpaper I`m talking about...

Let everything dry an hour or so.

Cut them out of your wallpaper 
and simple fold your star.
Because of the duct tape it will stay in place.
Now you can lean them to the wall, book case or hang them...
Oh the possibilities...:)
Simple right?

And that`s it, now place them where ever you like...

Now you can match your driftwood paddle;)

I think I will hang the star next to the paddle.
So what do you think?
Like them?
