Part I I am in the process of making a star, to go over my bed. It is approximately 4 feet tall. It started with, 5 Christmas paper tubing and 4 sticks. More of straight across and joining 2 of the lower part of the star. The top part, does not have a stick in it tubing. This is paper Mache. You have to cut the newspaper into star arms. It took 6 Sunday news papers. This is just the front of it. It takes several days to dry. Do not rush it.
