Step 7: Pop a star on the top of your tree

A Christmas tree isn’t complete without a shining star at the top. You could make this by:

  • cutting out a star shape from a piece of glittery card and gluing it on.
  • sticking on a large star sticker
  • making a star shape using glue, and sprinkling it with glitter. This is what we’ve done here. Once we shook off the excess glitter, it left a twinkling star.

Turn your painting into beautiful handmade Christmas cards for friends and family
