Christmas Craft Instructions

Star Tree Decoration

  1. Take 4 pipe cleaners and cross them over each other, meeting in the middle, like a star. You will need to bend one in the middle to hold the others in place.

  2. Thread the beads to decorate, curl the ends over so they aren’t sharp and use the ribbon to hang it on the tree!


  1. Choose a sweet or toy to go in the cracker (not provided). Roll the cardboard to make the middle of the cracker and wrap the crepe paper around the cardboard, leaving enough overlapping to tie the ends.

  2. Put the snap through the middle and add in your chosen toy. Tie the ends with the felt ties.

  3. Decorate with the bow provided and any other decorations you’d like!

Star wand

  1. Take the large star and tape to the flat end of the straw. Tie the streamers to straw at the base of the star, using a pair of scissors to get it to curl a little more. 

  2. Decorate the star and straw with jewels and stickers!

Felt paper chain

  1. Cut one end of the felt chain from the sides and make a small hole in the other end. Don’t make the hole too big. The link the ends together to make a loop.

  2. Each loop will interlock to make a chain. See below:



  1. Just add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and half to 1 cup of boiling water. 

  2. Stir the ingredients together in increments until the dough feels sticky but not too wet.

  3. Allow to cool, take out of the bowl and kneed vigorously for a few minutes until the stickiness is gone. If it remains sticky then add a touch more flour.
