My kids love decorating for the holidays, and garlands are one of the easiest ways to do so. They loved making these sparkly, six-pointed stars out of cardboard tubes. The stars were easy to make...and a great way to recycle!

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Cardboard Tube Star Garland

Gather your supplies. We used a glue stick since it dries fast and is less messy. We also used loose glitter and glitter glue to help decorate. (When using loose glue you will want a paper plate or piece of paper to put the glitter on.)

Start by cutting the toilet paper rolls in strips, stopping about 1/2 inch from the bottom. Older kids can easily do this themselves.

Then fan out each strip and fold it so it lays flat.

Then rub the glue stick along each cut strip.

Press the side with the glue on it into the glitter. Then tap to remove the loose glitter.

Then we used the glitter glue to add dimensional detail.

The stars dried pretty quickly since we used the glue sticks. We punched a hole at the top of each star and placed a string through the holes. Then we hung our festive garland on our mantle to ring in the holidays!
