We recycled drink pouch straws to make this simple star. Kids can make these, they are so easy. This ornament was named by my 12 year old daughter. It's a tongue twister that's for sure.
1- 1 1/2 inch round Styrofoam ball
2-drink pouch straws, washed and dried
Yarn or thread
Piece of thick Styrofoam used in packing
STEP 1: Push a tooth pick into the Styrofoam ball and paint glue on the ball with a paint brush (while holding it on the toothpick).
STEP 2: Sprinkle gold glitter over the ball until it's completely covered and let dry. Push end of toothpick in a piece of Styrofoam to hold it up to dry.
STEP 3: Cut 4 pieces of straw approximately 1 inch each, and 4 pieces 1 1/4 inches each.
STEP 4: Push the 4 larger straws into 4 sides as shown in the photo, with a dab of glue on the end that is pushed in.
STEP 5: Push the 4 smaller straws into the ball, in between the larger straws.
STEP 6: Tie a hanger on with yarn or thread. TIP: Before you push the top straw in, run a thread through it to make a hanger, then dab glue and push into the Styrofoam ball. Let dry.
