Wax Paper Star For Christmas

Long ago I started doing wax paper star with my children. They really loved it. Now my grandchildren will make them and I hope they pass it one to their children. It’s really simple to do these, and they look really sharp as added decorations throughout the house or on your trees. We added these to our Pinecone Peppermint and Chocolate Center Piece

Wax Paper Star For Christmas
Author: Granny Lee
These are simple Christmas decorations that you can make (or some other decoration type just by changing the shape.)
  • Safety scissors
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Glitter all colors
  • Wax paper
  1. Roll out the wax paper
  2. Cut the size of paper you want to use.
  3. Squeeze out Elmer’s glue in the form of star (or other ornament.)
  4. Then you take your glitter and shake it all over the glue covering the glue well.
  5. Shake the extra glitter off.
  6. VERY IMPORTANT: Let it set for 24 hours to dry.
  7. Then you carefully pull off wax paper.
  8. Hang on your Christmas tree or other places.

This concept can be used for various holiday decorations. However, I’ve found it to be really fun at Christmas time the most since you’ve already got the wax paper out when you’re baking cookies. It’s simple to make these and beautiful to look at.

Have you done this before with your kids?

Hi, I'm Dale. Some of the things I like to do are box, lift weights, and spend time with my beautiful wife Crystal. I also enjoy watching shows on Netflix or playing video games with my son when I can find some free time.

  1. OMGOSH! I thought I was the only one in the world who made these. When I was growing up we didn’t have a lot of money and made many of our ornaments each year. These were one of my favorites!

  2. I have never seen these before but they look super simple. My kids are all about crafts and with almost 3 weeks off this year I think this would be perfect for them to do one day.

    • It definitely will help keep them occupied for sure. Since you work from home too, I’m sure it will come in handy on those times you need to have them preoccupied. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • You’re welcome. I’m glad you found it as an idea worth considering doing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. (It’s nice to see another male blogger besides my son.)

    • I’m so glad I was able to give you another fun idea to do. This is really simple and unleashes a lot of imagination. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  3. What a neat idea. I’m looking for projects to keep the kids busy & entertained next week when they’re off from school. I know this would be a hit.

    • I’m sure they will love it for sure. It use to keep me and my siblings entertained for hours when I was a little girl. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

  4. It would be so fun to make differently shaped stars. These would be great decals for different projects.

  5. I’ve never tried this, but I like the idea and want to try it with my kids.

    An aside, I don’t know why, but thinking about not being around to see my grandkids teach something to their kids I taught them made me teary…it’s a sensitive time of year for me 🙂 I want to be around for my kidlets and grandkidlets forever!

  6. Oh my gosh – how fun and simple! You’re right – this could be used for all kinds of stuff. I wonder if you could run them through a sticker machine – then they could be like window clings….? Maybe? LOL
