How to Make Clothes-Peg Stars for Christmas

1. Disassemble Clothes-Pegs

Each clothes peg can be easily disassembled by removing the small wire hanger with hook. You don’t need it for this craft, you just keep the 2 halves made of wood.

The individual parts can now be glued together to form new shapes. We glued a total of 4 basic parts from clothes pegs in 2 sizes.

3. Trying Around and Finding Nice Star Patterns

Now comes the part that is the most fun: you puzzle with the basic pieces and try out different star patterns until you find something you like.

4. Gluing the Stars Together

Individual parts can also be glued with all-purpose glue

This part is the most difficult because the glued areas are relatively small and there is a risk that the star will stick to the base. Whether it works better with a hot glue gun or all-purpose glue is something you should try out yourself. We have worked with both.

5. Put the Hangers on the Stars

The small holes that are created when gluing the base parts together are perfect for hanging the clothes-peg stars.
