I love making crafts, however I'm not all that great at it. However, if it's sparkly - I'M IN! Yesterday I got bored (shocking I know with all of these awesome deals out there), and my daughter was bored too. So, I thought it'd be fun to do a craft with her. Note to self: 2 year olds do not do crafts.

Anyway I have a TON of supplies stashed around my house for those inspired moments, so I dug around and came up with craft glue, boxes my review items came in, glitter, glitter glue, ribbon and chopsticks. (We like our Chinese food.) Kiddo also had the chopsticks out pretending she was Ang the Avatar. The craft itself isn't all that expensive, especially if you have a lot of the stuff around the house already. Plus, you can make multiples out of these supplies.

I think next time I make this, I might splurge and get some poster board, but the cardboard was bendy enough and sturdy enough to do the job on this first attempt. Trust me, this is super simple! And, not including drying time, it only took a matter of minutes to put together. The great thing about this little craft, is that you can really do it any way you want. This is just how I figured out how to do it.

1. Create your star shape. I free handed mine, but you can certainly get a stencil online.

2. Cut your ribbon pieces to your desired length. We went with a thinner purple and pink ribbon, and cut the pieces about 24-30 inches. Lucky me that's the time my daughter figured out how to use the scissors.

3. Place your craft glue on both sides. A LOT of glue on the chop stick seems to have worked well. Center your chopstick, and place your ribbon on the glued pieces around it.

Next time I make one, I think I might wrap the chopstick with another piece of ribbon.

4. Place the two shapes together and SMUSH. I used a clamp to make sure everything was going to stay together. This needs to be laid flat to dry or the ribbon will work itself out from between the pieces. Feel free to put a piece of paper over it and put something heavy on top to make sure it glues together.

5. Paint the star shapes and add the glitter while the paint is wet. (Or add glue after the paint dries and then glitter.) You'll probably have to wait in between for each side to dry before doing the other.

6. I used the purple glitter glue to cover the sides, and try to hide the imperfections. If your sides aren't having issues, just paint and glitter.

7. You can do this before or after, but if you want your ribbon to last longer, make sure you burn the edges. You can do this with a match or lighter. Don't put the flame directly on the ribbon, but next to it so it melts a bit. This will keep the ribbon from fraying.

That is IT! That is all there is to it. Simple and inexpensive - just the way I like my crafts! My daughter loves it. She had a fit when I wouldn't let her take it to bed, and this morning she thinks it belongs in her brother's dump truck.
