Christmas Stars

It's time for the final Christmas decorations craft! I told you we had a busy crafter-noon on Sunday! These are my Christmas stars that twirl when the heating vent  underneath them comes on, it's a great use of fake wind power.

What you'll need:

  • Gold card stock
  • White card stock
  • Red ribbion
  • Silver glitter glue
  • Star cookie cutters or stencils
  • Sharpie
  • Pencil
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors 
  • Paint brush (oops, not shown)
  • Glue stick (oops again, not shown)

Step 1: Using your stencils trace and cut out a big gold star and a little white star.
Step 2: Glue the little start onto the big star, but only put a circle of glue in the center, so the little stars edges will lift up when the glitter glue dries.
Step 3: Write Christmas words on each star. I used Joy, Peace, Faith, Hope, Love, Rejoice and Savior.
Step 4: Punch a hole in the top of the star.

Step 5: Squirt some glitter glue on the star and brush it around with a paint brush to cover the star.

Step 6: Tie various lengths of red ribbion through the hole at the top of the star.

Step 7: Hang from a window in your home (preferably under a vent so they can twirl :)
