When I received a box filled with packing peanuts I immediately started thinking about how I'd use them for a craft project, and the first thing that came to mind was packing peanut stars. Of course, I actually thought I'd make the entire star out of packing peanuts, but with no real plan in mind, these fun stars are what actually came to be! The stars are quite large (the cardboard circle in the middle is from a family sized frozen pizza package) and fortunately turned out to be pefect decorations for the stage of our community Purim party this week. My only regret is that I only had time to make seven of them, the more the better!
I truly hope that none of you will have a bunch of packing peanuts delivered to your door, but if it does happen, now you'll know how to use them up rather than tossing them, right? As for the remainder of the packing peanuts, I did use a few more for another craft that I'll be sharing with you soon, but I still have quite q few to use up, and I'm thinking they could make great frosting for a large cardboard cake!
