I saw a rainbow window star on a blog somewhere, probably All Things Paper, a while ago and wanted to have a go - it looked so pretty. Having received some waxed kite paper for Christmas I was ready, I just needed a long rainy weekend to have a go.
I followed Helen Hiebert's instructions and came up with this wonderful creation. Mine is a bit bigger than she suggests, but I had a big window to fill.
Having made this one I think it would be quite easy to make a more complex star. I'll see how this one fairs in the sun. I've chosen a window where it will get a bit of sun, but not full sun so hopefully it will last a while.
You can't really see it in the photos, but even on a damp rainy day it seems to glow! Love it.
