21 Dec

Day 21: 25 Days of Christmas Ideas

Make this simple star ornament. It is a great craft idea for a Christmas party at church or to keep kids busy while last minute preparations are being completed in the kitchen on Christmas Day.

Supplies:
3 white pipe cleaners (per child), various beads in white and gold, gold ribbon

Twist two pipe cleaners together at their middle to form an “X”. Place the third pipe cleaner horizontal over the X and twist around to hold in place.

String the beads on each of the six pipe cleaner halves, making a design with the beads. For a smaller star, cut the ends of the pipe cleaners to the desired length. After all the beads are on the pipe cleaners, bend the end around the last bead to keep it in place.

Tie the gold ribbon to an end, making a loop for a hanger.
