View Full Version : Frank's 2 ft Easy Star

06-30-2009, 12:38 PM
Here is a plan for a quick, easy 2 foot wide star that is simple, and CHEAP to build! (My cost is about $7 per star)

Supplies needed:

1 10 foot piece of 1/4" steel rod (2" of scrap steel left)
1 7.5 foot piece of ropelight (I find 3/8" ropelight works best)
1 can flat black paint spray paint
40 4" white nylon zip ties

You will also need a welder to be able to weld the steel.

For a PDF containing the measurements of each steel cut, and how it would be assembled please see the below link:
