How to make a twig star
We will once again be showcasing a Rivers Christmas tree at Worcester Cathedral’s Christmas Tree Festival 2022.
Similarly, to last year we would like to decorate the tree in a sustainable way and have decided upon twig star decorations which fit perfectly with the ethos of a zero-waste Christmas but also with our STARS values.
We would like to invite children from across our family of schools, to make a star made from twigs.
The star should be made from twigs (no bigger than 20cm) and can be decorated with natural or biodegradable materials.
Children should bring their star decorations into class by Friday 11th November.
A star decoration from each class will be selected. We hope to use as many stars as possible to decorate the Rivers Christmas tree.
How to make the twig stars
- Collect five thin, straight twigs with similar thicknesses. No bigger than 20cm long
- Take two twigs and lay one on top of the other to create a point shape.
- Tie the twigs together with string (this bit is fiddly, so you might need a grown-up to help).
- Place the third twig on top of the second twig to create another point. Tie together with string.
- Place the fourth twig on top of the third twig to create another point. Tie together with string.
- Place the fifth and final twig on the fourth and first twig. Tie together with string.
Feel free to decorate your star, but please use natural biodegradable material.
