DIY Christmas Star

This DIY Christmas Star Craft is such a clever project for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, and grade 2 students to make in December.  This star craft for kids reminds us of the Star of Bethlehem that lead the shepherds and the wise men to where Jesus was born in Bethlehem. This christmas star craft ideas is perfect for making fun Christmas Ornament Star crafts or a sunday school craft for kids of all ages!

In Matthew 2 we read about the Wise Men searching for the Baby King. Matthew 2:9-10 reads:

After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.

After reading the passage and having a discussion about the Wise Men‘s journey, it’s time to do the craft!

This simple star made out of yarn and craft sticks is great for ages 5 and up.

All you need to make these yarn stars with popsicle sticks are a few simple materials you probably already have at your home:

  • Yarn (we used yellow and a fun sparkly white)
  • Craft sticks
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun (optional)
  • Printable tag (optional) **ADD DOWNLOAD LINK FOR PRINTABLE TAGS**

Start out by using your hot glue gun to glue three craft sticks into a star shape. I found it helpful to lay out the sticks how you’d like them to be and then use a pen to mark their position.

Next, tie the yarn around the center of the craft sticks. You don’t have to do this and can just begin wrapping, but I found it easier to tie it off first, especially for my littlest helpers.

Now it is time to begin wrapping your yarn! Wrap the yarn twice around a craft stick, then skip the following stick (going under it), then wrap two times again, skip the next, and so on.

As you keep wrapping it will start to look like this! Once you’ve wrapped for a while, you can change the look by switching which sticks you are wrapping and which ones you are skipping.

You can switch to a different color yarn by cutting your current piece of yarn and tying the new one onto it. You can also add in another color and do multiple colors at the same time. This is the fun part! Each person making their star can create it in their own unique way!

And the best part is, even if you get mixed up or your wrapping gets thrown off, the star will still look great! This makes it a great craft for all different ages and abilities.

Once you’ve finished wrapping tie off your yarn, leaving some length to use to tie into a loop to use for hanging.

At this point, you can be finished with your stars, or you can add on these fun tags with Matthew 2:8 on them!

Cut out your tags and punch a hole in them. Then, use yarn to tie them to the bottom of the ornaments.
