crafting with grandma - Woven Stars!

I've been debating what to put on the top of my tree . . . yes, my tree has be up for a couple weeks now without anything on the top. I have a lovely angel which I've used in years past, but it is definitely a "girl" and angels are boys, so I didn't want to use the angel this year. 

I'd like to put a star on the top, but have not been able to find one I like. So, I am leaning toward making a star! I like the twig star idea I shared about a month ago (you'll find it at this link), but I haven't decided yet, so today when I was browsing on Pinterest, I saw a star made from paper stips which you weave together . . . it has definite possibilities!

Follow this link for complete directions and a photo tutorial . . . it looks pretty easy and I love the idea of using glittery, gold cardstock to make this star!

What do you think? What do you put on the top of your tree? Have you ever made a star from strips of paper you weave together?
