Ever since I saw this light up star in Pottery Barn Kid’s catalog, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make my own. When my mother brought us some wonderful boxes of chocolates for Valentine’s day, I knew I had the supplies I needed to make my own PB Kids light up star. I love to be able to use recycled products in my crafting, and this was the perfect way to celebrate Earth Day and get my crafting fix!
Step two: Use the awl to pierce the box. I put tape over the spot before I pierced it, to keep the paper from ripping and to help hold the bulbs in place.
