There is a beautiful, yuletide feel to these stars, although here we are crafting them in October! Make them now, or set the idea aside for the upcoming Christmas season.
For each star, you’ll need 5 sticks that are roughly the same thickness and length; break any to the proper size if they are too long.
I hot glued the stars together, then set Travis up with tidbits to decorate them – berries, pine needles, a bowl of glue, and a bowl of glitter. Little pinecones would look sweet, too.
First dunk the berries in the glue, then immediately transfer to the glitter. He loved this part!
If you like, dunk in the tips of your pine needles, too, or any other nature finds you have to add to your stars. Let dry completely.
The next morning, we dabbed glue all over the stick stars, and added our berries and other treasures.
Travis got a bit impish and loved smearing glue over the leftover glitter on our work surface, too. Good thing I had things covered with a layer of foil!
Hang the resulting stars from twine, indoors or out.
As mentioned, these would be beautiful at Christmas, but will light up a windowsill or other area of your home any time!
