Cinco De Mayo Star Wand


Celebrate Mexican Heritage on Cinco De Mayo with a festive Jingle Bell Star Wand!

Materials


Instructions


Step 1. Gather your supplies.


Step 2.

Glue (5) Craft Sticks to form a star shape.


Step 3.

Once dry, paint the star and a Square Dowel. We chose green, white and red paint, the colors of the Mexican Flag, plus we added some yellow for contrast. Let the paint dry.


Step 4.

Attach a yellow Fuzzy Stick to one side of the star, as shown. Twist to secure. Thread a Jingle Bell on the Fuzzy Stick and slide all the way to star.


Step 5.

Wrap the Fuzzy Stick around the side of the star and thread on another Jingle Bell. 


Step 6.

Repeat steps 4-5 working around the side of the star, until you you reach the end of the Fuzzy Stick. Twist the end around the star to secure.


Step 7.

Starting where you left off, attach an orange Fuzzy Stick to the star, and twist to secure.


Step 8.

Continue threading and wrapping Jingle Bells around the star, switching to the red Fuzzy Stick, when the orange one runs out. Trim off the excess Fuzzy Stick.


Step 9.

Cut (6) 8” long pieces of Friendship Thread in different colors.


Step 10.

Split the cut  Friendship Thread into 2 sets, mixing up the colors in each set.  Turn over the star and glue one set of Thread to the right side of the star, as shown.


Step 11.

Glue the other set of Friendship Thread to the left side.


Step 12. 

Finish your star wand, by gluing the Square Dowel to the back of the star. Wave your star in the air and jingle the bells for a celebration!
