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.

Corrugated Cardboard Christmas Star
Wouldn’t this star also look so pretty embellishing a Christmas gift wrapped in natural colors?

For this project you will need:

- corrugated cardboard in tan and red
- red button
- natural raffia in a natural color
- craft glue
- small needle or hole puncher to punch a hole in
  top of the star
- scissors

Instructions:

1. Parents should print out the star patterns and they can then be traced onto the backsides of the corrugated cardboard. You can of course also use any other star shape you like. For each star you need 1 larger and 1 smaller star.
2. Cut out two large stars and one small star. Glue the backsides of the large stars first together, so that the grain is in another direction. This keeps the star from bending into the shape of the corrugation. Then glue the smaller tan star on one side of the larger star. Also here make sure that the lines of the corrugated cardboard are going in another direction so that it gets an interesting texture.
3. Cut one piece of raffia and create a simple bow with it. Glue it to the center of the tan star. Then glue the button onto top of the bow. Take a heavy item and place it onto top of the button to hold it in place while the glue is drying.
4. Punch a small hole in the top of the star. 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.
