Crafty Christmas Day 10 – Lets make a Lollipop Stick Christmas Star
We’re really getting into this crafting now, and Isabelle is throwing herself in wholeheartedly wanting to know what we’re going to do next.
I can’t quite remember where I got this idea from, but mentally stored it away as we had some coloured lollipop sticks in our craft box and wasn’t really sure what to do with them.
So today we’ve made a Lollipop Stick Christmas Star.
You will need:
- Coloured lollipop sticks which you can get in most craft shops.
- Coloured craft jewels. We found some sticky-backed ones
- String or Christmas ribbon
- Strong glue
First of all add the jewels to the lollipop sticks making sure that you avoid the centre part of each stick where they will be joined together.
If using glue, wait for these to dry.
Using a strong glue, glue the sticks together to form your star shape. Not a job for the littles as I proved by sticking the star to my finger. It took quite a lot to get it off, nearly pulling the skin off my finger.
Once this is dry, turn the star over and attach your string making a loop.
As soon as the tree is up (I know, you’re way ahead of us) we will be adding our new addition.
