Many people look for inspiration when choosing a home decoration theme. Some people look for inspiration in nature; others look for ideas in rustic architecture. In this article, we will take a look at rustic home decoration and how to create your own barn star with a few easy steps.
To make a barn star, start by finding barn stars that are already stained and ready to hang. You can find them online, in craft stores or at hardware stores. The best way to measure your barn is to use a tape measure to measure the height and width of your barn. Use two pieces of paper, one with the height and width measurements and one that have the length on it, as your guide when you are cutting your wood or metal. Your barn star should be around six feet high, but you can make it smaller if you want. Take a hatchet and some nails and a screwdriver and you can make your barn star.
When you have your new barn star, you can then paint it. There are so many beautiful colors you can choose from, and you should explore the whole spectrum. Some people like to add rustic accessories like baskets and other things to give their barn stars character. Others like to make it all natural looking. The sky is the limit when it comes to rustic home decorating.
If you want to add color, why not paint the star in the color of your choice? Many people like to add red and green barn stars with black accents to their log homes. There are also blue and white stars available that would look fantastic on a white home.
Once you have decided on the type of barn star you want to make, you will need to plan where you will hang it. This is where your rustic style comes in. You have a few options here. You can drill some holes in your wall and put the star in through those holes, or you can anchor it to a stud and have it hang from there. It is totally up to you which way you decide to go.
Hanging your star is actually very easy. The first thing you want to do is make sure the star is large enough so it will hang easily. Measure from the top of the ceiling to the ground, this is usually how big you want your star to be. Use a nail or screws to attach the star to the stud. Most stars will be attached using either a nail or screw.
Once the star is attached to the stud, you will want to use some wood glue to put it in place. You will want to be sure that the star does not show through the wood. Take your time and make sure you attach everything very securely. After you are done putting the star in, you will want to take off the bottom piece of wood. This piece will act as the bottom of your star and will help it to level out.
To finish off your barn star, I would suggest painting it with some clear wood paint. This will help give your barn star a rustic look. If you are looking for a unique way to decorate your home, I highly recommend painting your star. It will make your home look very unique and will make your friends want to come over to your house. So get started today, and start enjoying your unique barn star.
