Our family spends lots of time outdoors--splashing much of the day away during the summer, and hunting walnuts and bright red splotches on bare branches in the winter. We find this project to be a lovely way to get us outside when it's oh-so-cold so that we can admire and enjoy nature.

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Twig Stars

We make these stars every year. They're perfect for hanging near the porch or near windows. We use birch cones, glittered rosehips, small pinecones from our tree, etc.--whatever we find in our yard or neighborhood that looks pretty.

Twig Stars

First, we go out to gather small, straight branches. I cut the sticks into the same length, then hot glue five of them into a star.

We then get together all our treasures from nature. We already have some things in a box from years past, and some we collect. We often like a bit of sparkle, so sometimes we glue and then glitter rosehips: red for sparkle, or white for a snowy effect.

Twig Stars

We had some wire to use (but wire's not mandatory). Maddie cut out some wire and used it to help attach things to her star.

She glued, arranged, and wove things in...

...and oohed and ahhed while glittering things to her star.

And, oh! A jingle bell!

Lavender, tiny leaves, glitter... anything goes for these pretty stars!
