How to make a twig star decoration

Transform ordinary sticks into dazzling star decorations.

This is a great craft to try in winter when you'll find lots of twigs on the forest floor.

  • Fasten some sticks together in a star shape 
  • Paint it bright colours 
  • Hang your star on your Christmas tree or on your bedroom wall!
