Shortest Day of the Year! - Christmas baubles and subway art

My stars were made using sheets of A4 plain paper printed with music (or you could stamp with background music) then I inked with tea dye using my blending tool.

Last year I saw adorable paper stars on Purple Onion Designs (made by Michele) created to look just like the Pottery Barn Paper Music Star Vase fillers (below)
 I made a stash in various sizes and never got around to posting about them. 

This year I decided to change out my mantle arrangement and went away from the traditional (photo - 2009)
 and used the wonderful subway art on Eighteen25 to create this mantle.
I filled my vases with gold and red baubles and used the stars to fill in the spaces.  Would you like to know how to make them?  Check out the easy step by step instructions here or here.

3 days and counting!  Hope you have a wonderful day.
