I have had a fun time with this great post on making a metal star. I had never though about the possibility of making this star until I had read this post and a lot of possibilities opened up. Instead of pop cans I purchased a very light weight metal from Home Depot, it was in the roofing section. It was a few yards long, rolled up. This gave me more size options and they are a lot more sturdy and thicker then the pop can stars would be.
I added some stars around the house for this fun patriotic season.
