This Is the Star

Today we read This Is the Star by Joyce Dunbar and made a star ornament.

Product Details
This is the star in the sky.
~from This Is the Star
This retelling of the Nativity story is written as a simple, cumulative poem describing the holy night.

The illustrations are stunning oil paintings.


T made a Christmas star ornament from craft sticks.


I provided lots of embellishments, but T wanted only to use the gold sequins to decorate his star!

Supplies:

  • six yellow-colored craft sticks
  • glue
  • gold cord
  • gold acrylic jewels, gold sequins, yellow and gold buttons, yellow and gold beads

Directions:

Glue together three craft sticks to form a triangle.  Catch the ends of a piece of gold cord between the ends of two of the craft sticks (to form a loop for hanging).


Glue together the other three craft sticks to form another triangle.


Glue one triangle on top of the other to form a Star of David.


Decorate the star!


Let it dry thoroughly, and then hang the ornament on your Christmas tree!  :)


My inspiration for the ornament:
