How To Make Colourful Pom Pom Popsicle Stick Stars

To Make Popsicle Stick StarsTo start you need to make your popsicle stick stars. I’ve already written a post with a great hack to glue these babies together quickly and easily without the stress of finding that your last stick doesn’t close up the star! Check out my Yarn Wrapped Popsicle Stick Star Ornaments post to get the low down.

Pom Pom Popsicle Stick Stars – Step 1.Once you’ve made your popsicle stick stars cut a short section of yarn and tie it into a loop around each star for hanging.

Pom Pom Popsicle Stick Stars – Step 2.Now it’s time to have fun mixing and matching all those gorgeous mini pom poms. I love watching kids pick and chose. Some children love to pick out a single colour, some like two and others like many. Some like to space their pom poms evenly and others like a more random approach. Some children will try to fill every spare bit of space with pom poms and others will want to spread them out. It goes to show that even with a structured craft there is still plenty of space for children’s creativity and personal taste and style.

When your fingers get gluey it can be tricky to pick up just one pom pom if they are all very close together.
