Star Christmas Crafts for Kids and Adults

Learn how to make these unique star christmas crafts, with great ideas for both kids and adults! You’ll try projects for decor, gifts, and more.

Star Christmas Crafts

One of my favorite Christmas gifts ever actually wasn’t technically a gift under the tree. It was a stocking stuffer. I’m 45 years old, and when I was ten, the Christmas stocking really delivered. In the form of a sterling silver bracelet made with stars and links.

And I still have it.

I just loved that bracelet so much, and I still do. And you know what? It still fits. Just barely. But I treasure it, because that gift was so unexpected. Those are always the best presents in my mind, don’t you think?

Stars actually mean more to me than just a bracelet. I love them as a symbol. Stars are magical and inspiring. They are divine protection, hope, and new beginnings. Different cultures have different meanings for them, but I have yet to see one that isn’t positive.

And to prove my love even more, I actually have stars tattooed in multiple places on my body. I’m dedicated, if anything!

Anyhoo, the cool thing about stars is that they are easy to draw, even for young children. Which makes them absolutely perfect for crafting. And I think we’re all aware that they are an important symbol in Christmas crafts.

Which leads me to my point. I’m excited to share these star Christmas crafts that I think you’re going to absolutely love. There’s over 50, and there’s a section for kids and a section for adults.

You’ll see a variety of projects from decor to gifts, and you’ll also see several ornaments. The thing to keep in mind is that once you make a star, you can hang it on the tree . . . OR you can use it on a wreath, a wall hanging, table decor, or in any number of places.

So don’t let any of these ideas limit you! Make these star Christmas crafts and then get creative with how you use them in your gifts and decorating.

Now go forth and craft! Pick something for the list below and let me know what you try in the comments. What is your favorite symbol for the holidays? Let me know that too! Happy crafting and Merry Christmas!
