How to Make Christmas Paper Star Decorations
Turn basic card stock into a stunningly affordable holiday star decoration with this easy DIY project.
- white card stock
- craft glue
Start Preliminary Folds
Start with a square of white card stock. Fold in half lengthwise, then fold in half again, widthwise. Then fold across to create a triangle.
Mark and Cut Center Lines
Open the folded paper and mark halfway from the center of the paper, along the 4 center lines. Snip along each center line from the edge until you reach the marked points.
Create Star Shape
Fold each cut flap toward the diagonal fold lines. Repeat for all four sides until you get a 4-pointed star shape.
Glue Star Shape
Apply glue to every other flap. Pull flaps without glue on top of the adjacent glue-covered flap.
Define Creases and Folds
Turn the star around and define the creases and folds with your fingertips.
Finish the Star
Repeat process with another sheet of white card stock. Let dry. Staggering the points of the stars, glue one star atop the other. Let dry before hanging. Hang stars on the wall in groupings for a stunning holiday display.
