Here is an easy Christmas craft to make. When you're done, you can hang it on your tree, exchange it with a friend, or sent it to a grandparent.
Christmas Star Frame
Here is a fun star frame for you to make as a reminder of Jesus' birth. What You Need:
Six craft sticks
Gold paint--OR your favorite color!
Picture of yourself or family
Gold cord or wire
Glue three craft sticks together to form a triangle.
Glue the second set of three craft sticks together to form a triangle.
Allow the glue to dry.
Place one triangle on top of the other to form a star. Glue.
Allow the glue to dry thoroughly.
Paint the frame gold (or another Christmas color). Add decorations if you like.
Cut the picture so the face shows through the opening but no picture sticks out around the frame.
Glue the picture behind the frame.
Form a loop of cord and glue it to the top back of the frame for hanging. Allow to dry completely.
Hang on your tree!
The ornament in the pictures is a little beat up. It's the original one we were experimenting with. We tried painting them red, white and a combination of colors.
Give it a try and send a picture of you with your ornament! I'll post them here.
This craft is from "The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible" which I wrote. The book is for ages 9-12. But really girls a little younger or a little older than that may like it too.
