Easy Star Ornaments to make

Supplies Needed:

Directions for Making Star Ornaments:

1)  Begin by writing “Shine like STARS in the sky” Philippians 2:15, “Shine Bright like STARS”, or personalize with your own saying in the center of the yellow star shape with a Ultra Fine Point Black Sharpie.  Then draw short lines and dots around the edge of the star ornament.  A few dots in the center around the words are cute too!

2)  The star ornament shape comes with a pre-punched hole at the top for the ribbon.  Since the opening is so small, we used the end of a paperclip to “press” the ribbon through the hole. A large plastic children’s needle would work as well.  Once ribbon is through the hole, tie the two ends of the ribbon together for hanging the ornament.

3)  To finish the Star Ornament, we attached Mini Star Buttons with Mini Glue Dots.  Glue Dots are clear and bond instantly to the foam.  There is no drying time required, which makes this ornament a great make and take craft for any holiday party!
