Follow the Star 2016: Pipe Cleaner Star

I told you that we were going to go star crazy this Advent, so here is another star to work on.  Our children and youth will be making them during Sunday School this month, and I can’t wait to see how they turn out!  Find the step-by-step instructions, below.

A big thanks to this site for the idea:

There were no instructions, just a picture, so this is how I put them together:
