I love easy crafts for small hands to do, and these star ornaments is one of my favourite toddler Christmas activities – although the big kids love it too! It’s super-simple and often only needs materials you already have on hand anyway.
You Will Need:
Trace the size and shape of the stars you want onto some scrap cardboard.
Continue for the amount of stars required.
Using some sticky tape, secure one end of the yarn onto the cardboard star.
Wind the yarn around all of the star until filled. The tips of the stars can be very tricky so you can either leave them out (like my kids did), or hot-glue the yarn to the edges to stop it moving and falling off.
As your star gets fuller you can add a small bead to the yarn as you wind it around.
I chose white and gold for mine, because I thought it looked pretty and I had a lot of white yarn to use up. It’s also a great idea to turn 15 or 20 of these into beautiful bunting to hang in your home for the holidays.
