If you’re looking for a simple craft for the classroom, Scout group, or church youth activity, this star can’t be beat. All that is required is: a piece of card stock, black Sharpie marker or pen, felt scraps of various colors, fabric glue, scissors, and a needle and thread for hanging.
FELT STAR ORNAMENT
1. Draw some triangle templates on the card stock to use as tracers. Cut them out.
3. Arrange the triangles so that points overlap as shown in the photo.
4. Glue the corners and let it dry.
5. Attach thread to one point by pushing it through the felt with a needle as if you were sewing. OR you can poke a wire ornament hanger into the fabric and hang it that way.
Use them to decorate a tree, window (gold ones look especially pretty here), or to embellish a gift.You can make a mobile of hanging stars by tying them onto a wire coat hanger or “clothesline”. Don’t have felt scraps? Make the stars from card stock or construction paper.
They are so quick and easy to make, you’ll want to give them away to everyone you know.
