Christmas Crafts for Kids - Corrugated Cardboard Star Christmas Tree Ornament
These stars are easy for children to craft. Younger ones may need parental assistance but the older ones will have no problems creating these. The only skills they require are basic tracing, cutting and gluing. They can choose to make a dozen of these and use them as ornaments for a natural looking Christmas tree decoration.
For this project you will need:
- corrugated cardboard in tan and red - red button - raffia in natura - craft glue - small needle or hole puncher to punch a hole in top of the star - scissors
1. Parents should print out the star patterns and they can then be traced onto the backsides of the corrugated cardboard. For each star you need 1 larger and 1 smaller star. 2. Cut out the stars and glue them together. Make sure that the waves of the corrugated cardboard are going opposite of each other so that it gets an interesting texture. 3. Cut one piece of raffia and use one thin layer. Insert one end in the button hole and out the other hole again. Tie a bow. 4. Glue the button onto the smaller star as seen in the picture. 5. Punch a small hole in the top of the star. Take a small bundle of raffia and tie it together with a single piece of raffia. Insert an end of the single piece of raffia through the punched hole and pull through. Tie both single ends in a knot together for a hanging loop.
