Christmas Crafts for Kids: Santa Star Homemade Christmas Ornament

One of our favorite Christmas crafts for kids is making homemade Christmas ornaments. This Santa star ornament is such an easy craft for kids and turns out so adorable!

My most memorable Christmas crafts made by my kids are always homemade Christmas ornaments. There’s just something so special about hanging them up on the Christmas tree year after year. 

This Santa star Christmas ornament was inspired by a similar one I made when I was a child. (We still hang it on my parent’s Christmas tree every year!) It’s very simple and requires just a  few common crafting supplies. (This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.)

Materials for Christmas Ornament

Directions

1. Print out the star template and cut out the star. Use it to trace a star onto thick paper. I traced mine onto watercolor paper and then painted it with red watercolor. You could also just cut out your star from red construction paper.

2. Cut out some two black boots, two black mittens, and a black belt. Glue them onto your red star.

3. Trim off the black belt that’s hanging over the edge of your star. Cut out an oval face and draw on some eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Glue the face onto your star. Cut out a silver buckle from your aluminum foil and glue onto the black belt.

4. Take a cotton ball and stretch it out to make a beard. Glue it on to your Santa. Use some more cotton or white pompoms to decorate the brim and top of the Santa hat.

5. Punch a hole in the top of your star and tie some red ribbon or yarn through it to make a loop for hanging. 

6. I always like to write my child’s name and year on the back of the ornament as a keepsake.

Hang the Santa star ornament on your tree!
