This is one of the projects that was included in the Ramadan Challenge in an abbreviated version. Aimg_7223_2




  • Watercolors
  • Watercolor Paper
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Star Pattern and Pencil
  • Ribbon or String
  • Scissors and Hole Punch

Sometimes I pop out the watercolor ovals in varying blues and purples and then combine them in a bowl for painting to create more interesting color variations.




  • Wet the watercolor paper, it should be damp not dripping.
  • Watercolor the whole sheet, once done lift and tip up and down to mix the colors together which will create new colors.
  • Let dry.
  • Optional: The back side of the paper can also be painted.
  • Trace the star shapes on the dry paper.
  • Cut the stars out and punch a hole in the tip.
  • Glitter can be added just around the edges or all over the star.
  • Attach the string to the star and hang.

The stars can be hung individually from the ceiling or tied together with a ribbon to create a garland.
