Make a beautiful decoupage Star of David craft for Hanukkah.
- 6 craft sticks
- glue dots (optional)
- white glue
- assorted colored tissue paper
- small container/cup
- paper plate
- ribbon (optional if you want to hang it)
Making the Star of David — Glue the craft sticks together to form 2 separate triangles. If you have glue dots, use them to stick the craft sticks together to speed up the process. Let your triangles dry if you used glue.
Glue one triangle upside-down onto the other triangle to form the Star of David. Let it dry and then you can add a ribbon to hang the Star if you want.
Decoupage –In the small cup, mix a little bit of water with some white glue. Stir until it looks milky.
If your tissue paper is not already in small pieces, cut your tissue into 1-inch squares.
To protect your surface, make this craft on a paper plate. The tissue paper colors will run once you start to paint the glue/water mixture onto the tissue!!!
Paint the glue/water mixture along the craft sticks. Lay your tissue onto the craft sticks. Begin to layer your tissue paper across the Star, filling in the entire thing As you add a piece of tissue, paint your tissue with the glue/water mixture. It’s okay for the whole piece to be wet. It will dry. Don’t worry if your tissue paper hangs over the sides of the triangle because we will fold it over later. Once your entire Star of David craft is covered in tissue paper, brush some of the glue/water mixture along the tissue paper’s edges and corners.
Let your craft dry.
Once your tissue is dry, flip your project over. Paint the glue/water mixture along the craft sticks. If any of your tissue paper from the front is sticking out, now is the time to fold it along the craft sticks before layering on more tissue paper. Now repeat the process of layering on tissue and brushing the glue along the edges and corners as you did previously.
Once completely dry, hang or display your craft for your family to enjoy 🙂
