Make a star wall hanger with your kids
Star bright wall hanging

You will need


  1. Using the testpots, paint the cardboard and leave to dry.
  2. Take the stencil/cookie cutter and trace the stars onto the cardboard. Cut out the stars (we used seven of each colour).
  3. Tie five pieces of string, hanging at random lengths, along the branch/dowel. Also, tie one on each end, and hang onto the wall.
  4. Use the glue to place the stars along the pieces of string, mixing up the different yellows.

Supplies you will need

Step 1-2

Step 3

Top tip:  Use different shapes to suit your room theme – think flowers, rocket ships, animal paw prints and more. Choose colours that fit with your room colour palette. Add an extra effect with Resene FX Metallic for extra shimmer or Resene FX Nightlight for a glow-in-the-dark effect.
