Add glitter for extra sparkle and pizazz. When the paint dries, lay the blocks in the shape of a star. Hot glue the ends of blocks together. Make another layer on top to turn your star into a more substantial object. You can lean the finished star on a mantel or shelf, or attach an eyelet screw with string for hanging. Now you have a unique and colorful holiday star to decorate your home or give as a gift!

4. Make Jenga® block ornaments for your tree or living room
