One of the most widely recognised symbols of Judaism is of course the beautiful Star of David, which makes it a great symbol to use when decorating your home for the holidays. We love to make these Star of David buntings for all sorts of different holidays and just recently made more ready for Hanukkah. The buntings are easy to make and leave lots of room for creativity and individualisation.
You will need:
Popsicle sticks in many different colours
Decorations like shiny gems or sequins
Start by picking out six popsicle sticks. Glue three each into a triangle. You should have two triangles now. Put your triangles on top of each other to make a Star of David shape and glue the popsicle sticks in place.
Now you can decorate your star with sticky gems, sequins or glitter glue.
Make a whole bunch of stars! You can try out different ways of decorating them and different colour combinations, too! When you have made as many stars as you like all you have to do is attach them to some string or ribbon and hang up your beautiful bunting!
