Peg stars on a Christmas present 


1Separate the pegs

Gently ease apart 20 wooden clothes pegs, removing and discarding the metal hinges.

2Flip over and reattach with glue

Position the peg halves with the backs together and secure with hot glue, making 10 sets, five for each star.

3Combine the sets of reversed pegs

Dab hot glue onto the top of each set, pressing them together to create a star and leaving to dry.

4Decorate the star

Use a brush to paint each star in contrasting colours or leave unpainted. Leave to dry.

5Optional – repeat steps and attach two stars together

To make double stars, dab hot glue onto the centre of one star and position on another star, turning so the points are visible.

6Now you’ve got the decorations, start planning the gifts!

Take a look at our Christmas gift guide, you’re sure to find a gift to suit anyone, on any budget.

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
