INSTRUCTIONS
Wood star craft 01
First, we glued five popsicle sticks together into a star shape. We used a glue gun, which meant they dried quickly, but you can use wood glue or Elmer’s white glue if you prefer.

Next, we painted one side of the stars with paint mixed with a bit of white glue and sprinkled glitter on the wet paint.

We let the paint dry, then turned the stars over and repeated the paint and glitter treatment on the other side.

Finally, I hung our little glitter stars from the ceiling using thread tied around one corner.
I tied the other end to some twine that I ran along the ceiling, but I could have tied it to the Christmas light string just as easily. Or taped up the other end.

I love the glitter stars hanging from the ceiling like this, with the glitter reflecting the light from the Christmas lights!
I think they would make pretty great Christmas tree ornaments, too. And gift tags/decorations.
