The Craft Foam 3-D Star is a fun and easy project that uses craft foam, the funEZcrafts pattern and yarn or ribbon to become a simple yet attractive ornament.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Craft Foam 3-D Star:

Print the Craft Foam 3-D Star pattern.

Cut around each of the pattern pieces.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 1 cut out pattern pieces

Using the patterns, cut two of the full-sized stars and two of the half stars.

The two full-sized stars are the same size. The pattern pieces have different slits for the next step.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 2 cut foam shapes

Cut the slits in the craft foam.

Cut the slits only as wide as the craft foam is thick (or other material, see still felt and card stock examples below).

The lengths of the slits vary depending on whether the slit is connects a full star or a half star.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 3 cut slits

Matching the long slits, connect the two full-sized stars together. 

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 4 connect two full stars

Matching the shorter slits, add the two half stars on either side.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 5 add the two half stars 

Using a point of a paper clip (or other pointed object), make a small hole in one of the points.

Make sure to choose a point that can hold the weight of the star.

Do not use the half star points.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 6 make hole in one point

Cut a piece of yarn 8 to 10 inches long for the hanging loop.  

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 7 cut yarn for loop

Thread the yarn through the small hole in the star point.

The point of the paper clip can help push the yarn through the hole.

Match the ends of the yarn, tie a knot to form the loop and trim the ends of the yarn if necessary.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 8 add loop to star

The fast, fun and easy Craft Foam 3-D Star is finished. Find a spot to display the simple and pretty little star.

Craft Foam 3-D Star step 9 hang to display

Here is another version made using stiff glitter felt. For this one, the slits were not as wide as those for the craft foam.

This next version used lightweight card stock - stiffer than regular paper but not very thick.

The slits were only slightly wider than a scissors cut.

For this paper version, I used a hole punch to make the hole for the yarn loop.

For fun, I took a silver pencil and colored simple curls on the front and back of the blue card stock. 

You could do that as well to the Craft Foam 3-D Star to add interest and decoration.

Craft foam, card stock or stiff felt, they all make a pretty little 3-D star that adds a fun and simple decoration to a room.

Have fun!

The fun and easy Craft Foam 3-D Star can be an inexpensive project for a senior center, a children's party, a grandparent/grandchild day or just for a calm and enjoyable crafting time.
