Moon & Star Glitter Garland {Tutorial}

Today we crafted a moons and stars glittered garland to get ready for Eid. Most of the supplies can be found around the home.

Depending on the weather when you create this (humidity, cold, etc) it may take close to 24 hours or more for the glue to fully dry.


Print out a pattern of moon and stars and lay them out on your cookie pan. Put wax paper over the sheet of paper. Using glue, draw out your pattern.

After our first star moved around a little bit, we put some tape down to hold the paper and wax onto the cookie sheet.

When you’ve done your moon and stars with glue, cover them with glitter.

Now might be the hard part for the kids, as you’ll need to let them sit for two days for the glue to set.  Since my kids never go into the laundry room (haha), I’ve put this project on top of the dryer. 

Once the moons and stars had hardened, we simply glued them to the ribbon.

They did such a great job of coming out nice and hard and the glitter looks so good on them.
