Star Christmas decoration to make – using lollipop sticks

Lots of sequins are needed for this simple star shaped decoration for the Christmas Tree! You will also need

PVA glue

Paint – I used yellow but you can use any colour poster paint

Sequins

‘Joy to the World’ mini banner (free download available below)

A button and thread

Six lollipop/ popsicle sticks per star. (plus some spare in case of any mishaps!)

To make

1. Paint six lollipop/popsicle sticks and leave to dry. (You can purchase didderent coloured lollipop sticks if you prefer)

2. Once dry glue together – layer the sticks as shown in the photo and wait for the glue to dry.

3. Meanwhile thread the cotton through the button – tie in a knot to make a loop. This will be used to hang the star from the tree.

4. Glue the threaded button to the top of the lollipop stick star.

5. Before you add sequins to the lollipop stick glue the mini ‘Joy to the World’ banner in place and then add sequins to the star.

Button Christmas card to make

This is a lovely idea and very easy to make. You need to be patient though – let the glue dry completely or the buttons will fall off!

To make this wreath you will need a paper plate with the centre cut out. Paint this red or green. Leave to dry. Cut out lots of hearts in christmasy paper – a paper punch like the one in the photo will save a lot of time. Older children could use one but I would prepare the hearts ahead of time. Glue these to the paper plate wreath. Add ribbon.

You could use coloured paper plates but make sure the glue you have sticks to them, especially if they look shiny. Wired ribbon will hold a bow shapes fairly well. I bought the one in the photo from Costco.

This is a super easy Christmas Tree picture. Use the PDF christmas tree to print either a template or straight on to green paper/card. Cut out and stick onto a dark background. Decorate the tree with sequins, buttons and ribbon and a star.
