Stepwise tutorial for makingĀ Christmas Popsicle starĀ 

This is like the easiest star making tutorial. I mean i guess even my one year old daughter them if she doesn’t get tempted to start chewing the sticks up :P.

  1. Take your Popsicle sticks and put a drop of glue on the ends of each of the stick to stick three of them together into a triangle. Just make sure that on the each of theĀ sticks, you put drops on opposite ends.

  3. Better make all triangles at a go for how much ever Popsicle stars that you intend to make and let them dry.If not dried properly, they might wobble and end up in shapeless stars!

  5. Now that you have finished up all your triangles, you can choose any two triangles and superposition them one over the other such that you get a star shape. Now to put glue you will have only 2 sides maybe that touch each other which is more than enough to hold the star together.

  7. If you are using hot glue, make sure you apply lesser quantity of the glue cz once you press it down, the excess is going to pop out like a bubble in between your star ( which btw happened to me!)
  8. If you have spray paint well and good – just lay them all on a newspaper and spray paint the popsicle stars. Else take the pain like me to paint them one by one.

  10. I’m so horrible at painting cz I just don’t understand the funda of handling the wobbly slushy paint brush! Anyhow I finished up painting coats over coats to give it a solid color.
