January Trend: Golden Stars

Adjusting to the pace of the post-holiday flow has some of us seeing stars.

Stars have made a home amongst the trends of the season and have come to life through beads, stickers, glitter paper and découpage.

Hair clips from the early 1900s inspired me to take a risk and make a headband adorned with gold glitter stars. Initially I thought it would simply be a great accessory for New Years Eve, but I quickly realized that these five pointed friends have a longer life than that! Quite literally too, I hear stars in space live a long, long, long, long time… Why not enjoy them?

Iron-on star shaped studs make for a quick and simple embellishment to any piece of clothing and gold glitter star shaped stickers can be a stellar addition to just about any project.
