I've been eyeing barn stars for months now, but haven't wanted to spend the money to buy one. Yesterday, though, while walking through Michaels, I found a paper mache barn star that was much cheaper than the plastic/metal ones I've seen previously. I simply mod podged each star face with a different paper representing many of my favorite things about fall. My 5 year old summed it up perfectly when she said, "I love it, Mommy. I could just stare at it for hours."
