Shooting Star Christmas Tree Ornament
For the Shooting Star Christmas tree Ornaments you will need:
- A small piece of thick paper, felt, or other flexible, easy-to-cut material - one or two colors
- Reinforcements (optional)
- Glitter (optional)
- Markers (optional)
- Cut a circle from the paper, belt or other material. A good circle template is a coffee mug.
- Starting at the edge, cut a spiral going to the center of the circle. Decorate with glitter or markers.
- Cut a small star, about 1 or 2 inches wide. Make a tiny hole in the star. The ornament will hang from this hole, so you might want to use reinforcements (these are doughnut-shaped pieces of plastic used to reinforce the holes in notebook paper and are available at stationery stores).
- Decorate the star with glitter or markers.
- Glue the star to the center of the shooting star.
A Paper Christmas Star
- Draw a symmetrical Christmas Star on a piece of paper
- Make two copies of it.
- Cut them out around the exterior lines. And crease (with a scissors or table knife) the interior lines.
- Fold the creased lines in alternating directions (forward, backward, forward, backward, etc.).
- Tape the two stars together, back-to-back, so that eight of the edges are taped together; leave the bottom two edges un taped, to fit over the top of the tree.
- Then cover the star with aluminum foil (you may prefer a wrinkled texture by crumpling the foil), taping it to the star using double sided tape, or paint the star instead.
