Are you a star? Make a String of Stars

Call me crazy but I think paddle pop sticks are so amazing.

Yes the humble paddle pop stick.

They can be used to create picture frames, small planter boxes and pencil containers.

Save the mess and buy plain coloured paddle pop sticks and decorate yourself or purchase the multi-coloured ones for quicker crafts for kids.


Materials: 24 coloured paddle pop sticks, PVA glue, fishing line, scissors, coloured cellophane.
Step 1: Start by making a simple triangle and glue all corners.
Step 2: Make a second triangle and glue onto the first triangle facing the other direction.
Step 3: Glue all paddle pop sticks into star shapes. Use 6 sticks per star. Complete all stars and let dry.
Step 4: Cut out coloured cellophane and glue onto the back of the stars. Cut off any excess cellophane and let it dry.
Step 5: Attach a piece of fishing line to the back of the stars in a vertical line evenly spaced. Hang it on a wall or by the window to let the light shine through.
