Christmas Star

The Christmas star helped to lead the way to baby Jesus. It is a very important aspect of Christmas and its tons of fun as Christmas crafts kids can do!

Craft Supplies:

  • 5 Popsicle Sticks
  • Glue
  • Glitter Paint

Step #1:

Paint all sides of each of your popsicle sticks with the glitter paint.

We used a gold paint, so it doesn't stand out tons, but sparkles nicely on the tree.

Allow to dry.

Step #2:

Glue your sticks together, in the shape of a star.  Allow to dry.

Light the way to the Lord! Or just decorate your tree! Use string or fishing line to hang these up.
