For this project you will need the following:
-chipboard, or a cereal box
-cheap kids paintbrush
-aluminum foil or wax paper
For step one, cut the stars out. At the bottom of the page, I've included a PDF of the stars or the SVG file in case you have a cricut or silhouette.
Step 2: I mix the elmer's glue with 2 parts glue to 1 part water. I don't know why I do this, I just do. I use a paintbrush to brush the stars with the glue mixture onto one side. I don't like to get glue everywhere so this seems to help. I do apply the glue generously.
Step 3: After the glue is on the star, place it on aluminum foil or wax paper. Sprinkle the glitter heavily all over the one side of the star. Make sure you get all the cracks and crannies! Little kids are excellent at this part of the job. Allow the glue and glitter to dry for 10 minutes. Gently shake the remaining glitter onto the foil or wax paper and then place the remains back into the glitter shaker.
Step 4: Turn the stars over and repeat the process
Step 5: Once the stars are dried, slip a bit of string or twine around the middle and top of the star. Attach a hook to hang the star onto the tree, or simply hang from another spot. My kiddos love these hanging from the ceiling (I use command strip hooks, the tiny size).
