glittered felt star ornaments!

these are a mini version of the anthropologized star ornament of a few years ago... i really enjoyed how they turned out & when i saw some of the same paper mache stars i'd used [except mini!] at hobby lobby, i picked up a few... i couldn't resist at just $1.17 each.
here's the original with one of the new ones for size reference:
i followed my original tutorial exactly, other than after gluing the felt circles around the edges of the stars, i worked from the outside edges in, instead of gluing them randomly. if you read the tutorial, that will make sense.

i also added a little something extra this year... i lined the edges of each little circle with glitter glue. this gives the ornament some dimension & i love the contrast of the cozy felt glammed up by the glitter! perfect to make it a bit more christmas-y. i had several types of glitter glue, so they all got a bit of a variety of the brightness of glitter.
 the more lightly glittered ones almost don't show up in i have to say though, that i really love the bright, saturated glitter the best! i did 2 colors, an ivory felt with silver glitter & an oatmeal felt with gold glitter:

love these so much!
