You will need:

  • Jumbo pipecleaners
  • Tinsel pipecleaner
  • Buttons
  • Glue
  • Glitter glue


  1. Cut three six centimetre lengths of pipecleaner and one ten centimetre length.
  2. Take the longest piece of pipecleaner. Make a loop on one end to make it the same size as the others.
  3. Lay the pieces on top of each other to form a star. Twist the legs around each other in the middle to fasten them in place.
  4. Weave a tinsel pipecleaner through the legs of the star and twist to fix it in place.
  5. Glue buttons onto the centre of the star.
  6. Thread small buttons on to each leg and twist the ends to secure.
  7. Finally, add a small bit of glitter glue on to the end of each leg.
