the door for the star tips.
Make sure the hooks are facing outward.

Ferns are the perfect front door plant.

– [Erin] Hi, Robin.
This is a really cool star.
How did you make it?
– [Robin] Believe it or not,
it is made from dollar store photo frames.
– [Erin] – How did you put it together?
– [Robin] – That’s what we’re going to be doing
I want to introduce this product that I
absolutely love. It’s called E6000.
It’s an industrial-strength product that
you can use on so many different surfaces.
It says, “Metal, wood, fabric, glass,
ceramic, and polymer clay.”
And it’s a fantastic product.

STAR DÉCOR DIY:
Just a basic dollar store frame.
We are going to be taking off the back and
taking the glass out because we’re going
to be spraying out the frame.
So, we take it out, and then what you want
to do is take a marker and some cardboard,
hold up two of the frame pieces,
because we’re going to be finding the
angle that we want to use.
You can use as wide or
as narrow as you’d like.
But what we want to make sure is that all
of them are at the same angle,
otherwise your star is not going to work.
I had told you about the E6000 that I love to use.
It does take a little bit more time to set
up, but it’s very secure when it is set up.
So, for today’s purposes,
we are going to be using hot glue.
And hot glue can work if we are just using
lighter weight frames,
but you’ll definitely want to use the
E6000 for any heavier frames or if you
need to have some secure hold on it.
So just touch it together.
– [Erin] – Now, how long should we leave the hot
glue, or even the E6000 set?
– [Robin] – The hot glue, it only takes a minute,
but the E6000, you want to give it 10
to 20 minutes depending on the weight of
