You like the fancy projects, they like the messy ones. How do you find a craft activity that meets the needs of everyone?
You may just with this simple Christmas project and best part, it cost zero dollars. This ornament looks beautiful and is easy for little hands. Just check your craft stash and see if you have the supplies to make this adorable Yarn Star Ornament.
It is almost as quick and easy as our popular seashells ornament, and it’s a great one to keep little hands busy.
On a side note, I think my box of craft sticks is never ending and it seems to multiply overnight! Does this happen to you too?
We also had some scraps of yarn given to us from my mom (the kid’s Gramom). This project made my little guy very happy. He loved making the star and wrapping it with cool yarn. I think it felt great in his fingers and it was easy to do.
This photo below only shows one, but this was a never ending project and everyone got made one as a Christmas gift.
The hardest part was making the star (when I made it). When my son made it, he had absolutely no problem! He is now our official star maker. I think you could also make these with just a cardboard base. You don’t necessarily see what’s underneath the yarn, so use what you have.
Yarn Star Ornament Supplies:
- Popsicle sticks or cardboard for the star
- Glue gun or tape to get the yarn in place
Tip: Check out this guide to using a hot glue gun safely with kids.
Hang this cute Yarn Star Ornament on your Christmas tree or a window and enjoy!
These Yarn Star Christmas ornaments were inspired by the wonderful Twig Stars over at Happy Hooligans with her preschoolers.
Merry Christmas! Enjoy your Yarn Star!
